Cassandra’s First Field Trip

I was already up at 4:30 a.m. on Saturday to ensure that Cass reaches school by 7 a.m. for her maiden one-day field trip organized by her school for Primary 5 students. Places covered include a soy sauce factory, a theater at The Curve, a Nyonya kuih factory and lunch in Selayang.  She’s waited for so long for this day to come and I don’t want to disappoint her.

Lovely view of sunrise at 6:45 a.m.

Cass with her BFFs, A and J.  They have been in the same class since Primary 2.

Cass’ caring teacher, Ms L, volunteered to put Cass in her group so that she can watch over her.  Ms L is aware of Cass’ bladder issues and I briefed her about Cass’ health do’s and don’ts before the trip.  Honestly, I was still reluctant to let Cass go on the day of the trip but I knew that I have to let go. Cass has to learn to take care of herself knowing very well of what she can and can’t do and the nasty consequences she has to be faced with should she get another UTI attack.

Cass sat at the back of the bus with her besties. She turned her back on me and pulled the curtains when I tried to steal a photo of her in the bus🙄.

She kept her promised and Whatsapped me throughout the trip, telling me where she was and what they were doing.  The day passed really quickly and I was too busy chauffeuring Alycia and Sherilyn the whole day that I didn’t even have the time to worry too much about Cass.  I was so happy when I saw her alight from the bus after the trip but refrained from giving my baby girl a big hug and kiss. She now resists all forms of public display of affection  😥
