Two things have happened this week that have made me think about wishes.
On the weekend we went to GoMA (Gallery of Modern Art) as the current exhibition is "21st Century Kids"
It was amazing!
It was amazing!
One of the pieces of interactive modern art was a
Many pieces of ribbon, each with a different wish printed on them;
I wish I could fly
I wish I had wings
I wish my drawings came to life
I wish I was a Ballerina travelling the world
(Miss A chose this one, ok so I chose it for her!)
What did Master O choose?
I wish I had a pet!!!!
Then on Wednesday, we had Master O's Prep Interview,
yes thats right interview for starting school in 2012 in APRIL 2011!!
and the dreaded question was asked by the principal...
What do you wish or want for your child's education?
so I thought.......
To learn with enthusiasm, use his initiative, follow his passions and
leap in to life
To stay healthy and active, to exercise his body and mind
To be given the opportunity to explore, imagine and inquire
To develop a sense of awe and wonder
and to use his senses,
to touch, taste and smell
To communicate confidently and
to speak up for what he believes in, without fear of judgement.
To choose his own path instead of following others
to maintain the balance between
school and home
friends and family
study and play
To face every obstacle as a challenge armed with the persistence to conquer it
and the resilience to shrug off the setbacks
To feel the joy and pride of success.
Today I am grateful that all these wishes for my child are beginning to come true
What more could a mother wish for.......
