This is the cake that we bought for the kids.
Today, I want to thank the Almighty for blessing me with three beautiful kids. We are proud parents this March. My eldest did not get any academic honors (top 11) but he was given a Most Behaved ribbon. Wasn't that one of the things most parent dream of, to have peace of mind knowing that no matter where and with whom you leave your children, they'll act courteously and behave correctly? He has been getting this Most Behaved ribbon for three years now. I didn't quite realize that until he told me and we laughed about it since we're always asking him to behave at home.
My second son, Sam, was awarded with Most Obedient, Best in Math, Best in Computer, and Best in English plus Academic Honors. His school is a small one with very few students, nonetheless, he earned the points to make it to the honor roll. He is so deserving of these awards because he is such a diligent student. He wouldn't go to sleep without doing his assignments. This child jumped, leaped, from being a child who cannot speak coherently to the child he is now - proud of himself, can read, can dance in front of many people, still working on his writing and spelling but very good in Math.
This school year has been so fulfilling. I've somehow gotten out of my comfort zone to support the activities of my two older kids. Gosh, I've almost became a stage mom. But the credit is not mine, the credit goes to the dad and the aunts and the grandmas as well, who are helping me raise these kids and of course, to the kids themselves who've behaved and labored this past school year. And I shouldn't forget Sam's teachers who helped him overcome his speech delay and who taught him his lessons patiently.
So, last Sunday, we bought the kids a cake which they liked very much. The youngest one's name had to be included in the cake because he said he's also very good. He said he is "Good Job" too! He felt bad that he didn't have a medal and wanted a medal of his own so we told him next year, he'll get one. That is, if he study really hard. And he said he will. Let's wait and see. :)
