Tired of finding parking space for an hour

Today is my busy day so whatever events need to push away because today I need to collect son's report card and see the teacher. Teacher is 60 years old and next week school holiday she is not around anymore. She retired and has been working with school for 20 years. She says to another mom that they no longer cane students because parents complains. They cannot take any action against them but keep remind them to do homework and pass up. Children is being asked to copy board answers as they have no time to teach.

Exam from Stand Four onwards are tough because it needs them to think. Malaysian students that compete in oversea with other students. Malaysian students lose to Vietnamese students says the teacher. Amazing I didn't know that children went oversea to compete with other students. That is why the exam children will need to think of the answer of their own and not copy the exact answer from paper. If copy the marks will be given lower and not full mark.

An hour rounding try to find parking lot for my car, sadly I cannot find any parking. Thanks to a parent my son's ex classmate mom, she reserve a parking for me. We need to walk quite far from school to reach but it's okay because there's parking for our cars. We parked roadside, and do worry of saman.

My legs cramp so badly in car as I keep rounding and 1 box of fuel has drop. It's a relief when found a parking spot, I almost want to leave the place and go home.

Are you a Mother 2.0? Get involved to appreciate mothers who challenge stereotypes in raising their children the best way they know how!

“Who says children can’t listen to rock music?” – Lifetime: Mother 2.0 Wisdom 

“Going on holiday doesn’t make me a bad mom. That’s why it’s called a holiday!” – Lifetime: Mother 2.0 Wisdom

Today’s mom is caring, patient and attentive; she’s also a best friend, life coach, shopping and workout buddy, travel companion and role model. This ‘upgraded’ model, which Lifetime has christened 'Mother 2.0', has evolved with the times - they are moms who have developed impressive skills like ashtanga yoga, 5-minute makeovers and extreme multitasking among many others.

To pay tribute to our Mother 2.0s, Lifetime is proud to kick off a Mother's Day movement in celebration of these special women who live by their own terms, defy tradition and challenge stereotypes with their unconventional approach to motherhood. Here’s how you can be a part of Lifetime’s Mother 2.0 revolution!
