The new school term began in Hongkong on Wednesday (Sep 1), and actor Sam Lee’s three-year-old daughter Lucy was one of the many kids who put on a school uniform and headed off to class.
Of course, his fashion designer wife Sophia had to document the milestone moment, taking to the Instagram account she manages on behalf of Lucy to post several photos of the adorable little girl looking very excited for her first day of preschool.
The logo on her shirt shows that Lucy is enrolled at St. Thomas’ Catholic Kindergarten.
According to the caption, while Lucy was very brave and showed no signs of wanting to cry, Sophia was the one who got emotional instead.
“Mama Lee wanted to burst into tears ‘cos from today onwards, Lucy will no longer be at home to play with her in the afternoon,” Sophia lamented. “She will be so lonely and sad, and feel as though she doesn’t have a daughter!”
She also added the hashtags “I thought I could be cool but I ended up being so reluctant to let her go to school” and “Actually, can she go to school when she’s five so I can play with her a while more”.
