No Longer a Baby

This picture was taken a few weeks ago when I went to Bela’s school for the star gazing activity that they will be having with all their students and their family.


I was really sentimental when I saw Bela went out with her classmates and teacher and it dawned on me that Bela is no longer a baby. Soon she will ask me about pimple remover, or she will ask for advice already on her love life, or she will ask for our permission already when she wants to go on a date. How time really flies.

When we were deciding if we should already send Bela to big school or not, my worry that time as a mother is if he can adjust to the big school setup. I feel that she is still a baby and I am not sure if she can survive, if she can be independent enough as they will only have one teacher in big school to assist all the students unlike in her play class where they are really pampered and they have two teachers and one yaya in class.

But when I was still on leave and I get the chance to bring and fetch Bela from school, I can really say that she has matured already and she really did not have any problems adjusting to the big school setup. She even wants to be really independent even at home that she wants to do things all by herself like taking a bath, brushing her teeth, dressing up, etc.

I know we can’t stop her from growing up so I guess the only thing we can do now is enjoy every minute as we watch Bela grows up to be a fine lady.
