Vacation Bible Study

Hello there folks, how is your Monday so far? I am sleepy over here, I did not sleep good last night because of a separation anxiety. We enrolled our daughter to a Vacation Bible Study for a week which started today. The activities will be carried out in another city so I am having a little difficulty accepting the fact that my little girl is getting big and that she is ready to face other challenges without me wahhhhhh. But I know that it is for her own good, emotionally, socially and spiritually so I just have to deal with it. But anyhow, I woke up early today, prepared her lunch box, gave her a bath and hubby took her to the chapel where the rest of the kids will convene. The lady (thanks Ms. Luisa) who is in charge of their activities today was very kind to call me and let me talked to my daughter. Rylie said that she is having so much fun with the activities they are doing, I just hang up the phone. She did that she will definitely finish the course for the week. Is it just me or you feel the same way with your children?

  1. I felt the same way buds...
    I remember I took advantage of the 15-day Vacation Leave just so I could see how Ton's doing at pre-school...
    I myself did the "hatid-sundo"...
    Don't worry, I'm sure Rye will be just fine...Pretty sure she'll like it, too...

  2. oh my gosh...one week? holy cow! I can't imagine if Akesha will do the same...hirap kaya sis....well, sabi mo nga it is good for her....we just need to learn to accept na she's getting big...

    pretty soon she will be going to school and participate some school activities like camping and other stuff....my gosh, she's really a grown up now....

    hope EJ is making you occupied while Rye is away....don't worry sis, I know she will be ok. On the other side, she's learning how to be independent....so brave of her...:)

    how's your weekend sis? pagod kami today kasi operation linis bakod kami...dami kasing rotten fruits sa bakyard...tsaka nag grocery din kami...most likely sa bahay lang kami...linis ng paligid....hehehe!

    salamat sa dalaw at comments ha....daan muna ako dito sis...blog hop muna ako sa katribo natin...tagal ko na rin d naka blog hop...sige...mwah!...miss yah!

  3. Is nice that you get to talk to her, at least soothed you for a while. I'm sure you'll be fine by talking to her on and off to ease the situation. By the way, you live in a nice place. I'm touched to see the photo of father and daughter walking towards the car. Reminds of myself and my dad.

  4. So typical of young moms like you! Quite hard to let go of the kids on their own. E kung ako nga na legal aged na ang mga anak, always worried pa rin every time my children are not home yet on expected time. I guess mothers will always be mothers on whatever stage their kids are. That's mothers' innate character.

    Don't worry, Rylie will be home gaining more experiences. It'll be the start of developing her own wings. Just be there to guide her.(wink!)

  5. Hi Rose! Yes, I also have experienced separation anxiety, and I understand what you are going through! It is hard to "let go," but you are a wise mother to start letting her test her wings!

    That was such an adorable picture of them walking to the car...precious! :)

  6. I know how you feel Mommy Rose,I felt the same way too nung unang araw ng eldest ko na mahiwalay sa amin completely after she graduated in her high school & went to city.Ang hirap pala & maraming adjustment but then pag naiisip namin na it's for her own good & for her brighter future naman lumalakas ang loob namin.Ang cute cute ni Rylie talaga & mukhang smart kagaya mo.Relax ka lang dyan Mommy Rose:)
    Btw,thanks sa visit ha,kaya naman nagkaroon ng mga visitors dahil sadyang mababait lang kayong lahat.And I really thank you for that.Happy Monday!

  7. during the first week my younger son started school here, he always complained of tummy aches (hoping I would let him stay at home). It was a tough moment for him because he did not speak English. After two weeks, he was a happy child, enjoying his new classmates and teachers, and absorbing the English language fast.

  8. When Roan was 3 and I had to go visit my hubby in Korea, he was in the Philippines with my eldest son Dan, I cried everyday, and promised myself that I will never leave my children again. Now, wherever I go, I take them with me. Unless, they are big like Dan who can take care of himself without Mommy..

  9. i think all moms felt the same way too. i still remember when my kids were still at preschool, i always end up waiting for them outside the school until the end of the class, ang hirap iwan although i knew they were safe inside.

  14. I am feeling for you but you made the right choice. It is never easy leaving someone else in charge of your child but you called and talked to her and she did not cry to come back home. Thank you for the nice words about our special day. Hang in there the week will go fast.

  15. Hi Rose. Nagulat ako sa comment mo...matagal nga ang isang linggo. Nakakadagdag pa sa separation anxiety and pag aalala. Alam mo na ok siya pero nag iisip pa rin kung kumain na kaya ang batang iyon, ok ba sya. Yung mga ganun ba? One week is like one year. Natural lang yan sis. One stage we undergo as a parent. Your lucky your hubby is there for and with you. How about letting it out lang para mailabas lang ang anxiety. Rest assured every thing will be fine. Anything for the benefit of our child, kahit mahirap sa side natin...go lang..kaya nating yan..di ba? Hang in there, my friend. after a week, you will see rye running towards you for that big hug with matching..i miss you.

    Please do not worry. I am pretty sure you can deal with the separation anxiety.

    Regards to you and your family and always take care.

  16. I guess all Moms experienced the same way--we have to 'let go' for them 'to grow'.I experienced that,too when Wakaba went her first day at pre- school. ^_^

    Have a nice day!!^_^

  17. The vacation Bible study is very good for Rylie. She will appreciate spiritual lessons from the Bible. Kids who grow up immersed in Bible studies like regular Sunday school become well behaved citizens of any country. They grow up with a healthy fear of God and love for his fellow men. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.

  26. Uwian naman yata di ba? :)

    ok lang un, ganun talaga. sooner or later, she's going to leave you pag nasa big school na siya.

    I was a Vacation Bible School teacher for several summers and I think most kids enjoy and learn so much in one week. Madami activities kaya nalilibang sila. I really think all kids should attend one! :)

    I visited John's site and saw Rylie's pics there, looks like naenjoy nga niya! Thanks for sharing, Rose!
