I’m kinda blur off late. As always many things are cooking, be it at work or at home. So let me digest what exactly I need to do in order to achieve the award. Ohh got rules one kah?? Okay, kita copy paste je lah kan.
The rules are:
1. Admit one thing you feel awful about (involving being a mom). Once you have written it down, you are no longer allowed to feel bad. Remember you are a good mom!
2. List 7 things you love about your kids, you love doing with your kids, or that your kids love about you.
3. Send this to 5 other moms of the year that deserve a reminder that they too are the best moms that they can be. Remember to send them a note letting them know you have selected them, and also add a link to your post that directs people back to the person who nominated you.
Alamak…ni pasti banyak part yang not meeting KPI yet (but still Q1 mah..can still catch up).
First on the list.
1. One Thing I Feel Awful About
Not being able to breast feed any one of them. The longest one that latched onto me was Faris – only 3 days. Both Farah and Nissa hung on for 2 days. Reason for such short stint, nipple malfunction, err got such thing ah? They became sore, cracked and then bleed. Painful nyer Tuhan saja yang tau.
a. Seeing them all grown up now, pretty independent and able to manage and organize things on their own.
b. Seeing them develop intense liking on varied skills. Faris - DIY and technical skills (so like father like son). Farah – arts and craft, cooking and baking and sports too. Nissa – also into arts, literature and IT.
c. Listening to Faris talk to the two sisters about life in college. I could see that the young ones are inspired by his pep talk.
d. Watching them sleep when they camp in the living room. Positions of all sorts; a young man, a teenage girl and the over grown baby sister.
e. Having Nissa remind me that I don’t need any more shoes or handbags or new clothes when ever I have that sudden itch to go do my impulse retail therapy.
f. Going on vacation together. Perth was the best and so was the trip to Hong Kong in 2007 (more stories here) when they all (Faris, Farah, Nissa and TM’s Aliah and Ayna) doted on their Grandmother. Sorang angkat bag, sorang picit kaki Uwan and I could see how happy my Mom was during that vacation.
5 others who deserve this award.
