My Picasso In The Making

Friday is quite a hectic day. Apart from them schooling & mengaji in 2 different sessions, Yasmin & Wardah also attend a Mental Arithmetic class in the evening. Since it is like a half an hour journey from home, I very seldom go back after sending them off. I chose to wait for them.

Friday night is also the night I have either my double cheese burger or merely a McChick at the 24hr McD's outlet nearby. My date had always been Balqis (if HB were around she will be the kacau daun laa). But last night I sort of missed her presence at McD's. Why is that so? Because my soon to be 4-year-old girl has now enrolled for an art class.

It had been quite some time that I'd been wanting to register her. She has shown a great interest in colouring which she used to detest. Frankly, HB & I agreed on next year but knowing me the forever anxious mama, I just couldn't wait for another couple of months. Hehehe!

In fact, the art class is very convenient in terms of time & venue. It is in the same building as the elder girls' Mental Arithmetic class. Starts from 8pm, ends at 10pm. Such a perfect arrangement...

However, I did feel worried. What if the 2 hour class would bore Balqis? What if she couldn't get along with the teacher & friends? What if she wanted to go to her sisters, knowing that they are just a class away????.. Good thing HB was around last night to hush me up & drag me away to... where else? McD's ;-)

A quarter to 10pm I rushed to check on my little girl. She was doing marvellous with her work. Even her teacher complimented on her neatness & independence. Talk about independence, I later found out that Balqis didn't even once mention any of us but... there was someone who checked on her. This someone used the reason of being thirsty, remembered that her little sister was just next door & she did bring her tumbler with her.

Any idea who that someone was? On the dot... yes, it was Wardah, who else? It was not because of thirst, neither because of her concern over her sis. She was curious over her sister's new crayons, new bag & new art book. Am I not right Wardah...? But I also knew you looked forward to see Balqis's work too... ;-)

OK, these are the pics I shot. Enjoy them!

I can't resist sharing this photo. These 2 girls were very excited with my big cam.



Her friend at work.

Since I was already there, I might as well shoot some pics of Yasmin & Wardah. In their Mental Arithmetic class, they use the abacus. They will later do the mental calculation of the abacus in their head. Pretty fast, especially Yasmin.

The 2 girls... too bad their friends had gone home.

ja...ke mana tumpahnya kuah kalau tak ke nasi (eh betul ke ni?)...

i remembered all those drawings done by their papa...so i guess it's only natural if they follow the suit. and looks like it, you'll get an artist in da house soon!

to balqis, keep up the good work dear...nanti aunty leen book satu painting okay :-)

Azira,
Wardah mmg very entertaining. BTW, comment yang Wardah typed "thanks!!!" tu was meant for you.

Papa ni mana ada homework... diorg dah honeymoon la.

jabishah said...

Hi danial ma,
Yup she indeed loves colouring. Tx for dropping by.

jabishah said...

Hi leen,
How hv you been? Missed you. But true what you said. One of the things I fell for papa diorg pun pasal him being artistic... hihihi.
In fact not only Balqis, all 3 (nadeen tak tau lagi) ikut tgn papa, pandai drawing. Unlike mama yg artistic in cake deco boleh laa ;-)

jabishah said...

Wlily,
Ya laa... interesting. Did that with the elder girls last time but I doubt it with Balqis. Nanti I request. Tx!

jabishah said...

Hi Permatahati cik liza,
Hehehe... Betul tak? Anyway tx. Balqis is so looking forward to her next class. Even mama dia pun can't wait to see another end product frm her! ;-)
