My Officer of the Day

Finally! Yah you could say I'm screaming (not literally though). I finally had the time to visit this cyberspace. I was again absorbed (well I know some of you may know that this happens every start of the school year) and bombarded with lots and lots of work plus a leveled-up gradeschooler whose academic and extra-curricular activities are more loaded than mine.

This school year has greatly improved with Meg's more independent acts and more matured "kwento" about school. If I had to bring up my post about her first week of Grade two, I'd say she became more responsible in handling her school things and doing things on her own. I didn't actually understand when she told me she was nominated to become one of their class officers. When she went home on the day of the election, she proudly said she won as their OD 3 (Officer of the Day 3). They're like the Kagawad since the major officers are President, Vice-President, and Secretary. OD's have specific responsibility such as to check if the room is clean, that no one walks around the classroom when the teacher is not around, to assist the three major officers, etc. 

This one came as a bit shock to me since being responsible is the last entity of her childhood that I think would have an upgrade. I had to ask her how she was chosen as nominee and she answered, "I was nominated!" Pa'no nga? "I respectfully nominate... " So, naniniwala akong may kaibigan si Meg sa klase hehe... She cried nga daw when she didn't win as President, three lang daw votes nya. I asked her if she voted for herself, NO daw haha! Funny lang that I was always the President of our class since Grade 4 yata, and now my little girl fancies of becoming one.

If I had to look at it profoundly, this being an OD has undeniably helped Meg. She told me that she needs to be responsible, now that she's an officer. It would amuse me that she would be able to go in front of the class and remind everyone not to run or to sit down; along with my apprehension if they will follow her. Well you can't blame an overly-hands-on Mom to over think again. But as Meg always says "Ma, I'm responsible. I'm an officer." I suppose, I just have to put that in mind.
