His very first TROPHY

Ethan came home from his Mandarin class a very happy boy today. He was smiling from ear to ear and had his hand hidden behind him that I guessed he was hiding something from me. True enough, he was hiding a trophy he got in class.

Ethan and his trophy.

I don’t know why he got the trophy or what it represents but one thing is for sure, he is extremely happy today. He held onto the trophy where ever he goes, showing it off to my students and all. He even went to bed with it. 

Simple stuffs like this really makes a whole lot of difference to Ethan. BaoBei is very good in rewarding kids for their good performance. I’ve seen numerous rewards and encouragement gestures from them and I’m really happy with it. 

Ethan told me before he went to bed, “Mommy, I’m now the same like Lightning McQueen. I have a trophy and it’s time to buy a trophy case just like McQueen to keep this”

Hehe.. kids. I was like that too when I was younger. Easily pleased. In fact, I am still like that today. The simplest things in life can put a smile on my face anytime. A peck on the cheek, a hug.. or just a simple ‘HI’ on Facebook! Haha.. Yeah, Facebook makes me HAPPY! :P

But nothing makes me happier than seeing my boy HAPPY. That, to me, is true happiness :D
