Quick Post~ Manisnya Berusrah~

Today is the 13th of Ramadan.. but.. it's only my second day of fasting. Hihi.. 

I know Ramadan is not the best time to waste time on writing a blog post or watching or playing etc. It is the month where we should embrace our Quran more. That's why I promise that I would not spend more than 20 minutes on this entry. The 'urge' that I had before starting this entry was just too overwhelming that I have to pour this out to stop my brain from messing my day. LOL!

Things are a little different for me this year. With packed scheduled right before my maternity leaves, I have missed Circles and Hadith classes. And this is the first Ramadan ever since coming back from Australia that I have missed Tadarus with great Beautiful Muslimah of KoE. The feeling - sangat-sangat rindu.

You might said that the extrovert side of me must have made me felt that way.. that it drains me out not being able to be energised from having meeting people. You might be right. But there are other elements and reasons for just having all those things.. which I find it difficult to describe here in writing.. 

I have met people who have the notion that there is little reasons to go to usrah or to be in classes when we can get all of it online i.e. lectures on youtube etc. Let me tell you this - it is very much different. You have to be part of 'one' to understand. :-)

I hope this entry calms my heart. Nanti kita cari geng usrah ye~ Hihihi.

T is for Tia@3!

Happy birthday my dearest Fatihah! Mi-mi’s and Ya-yah’s forever-happy-cheeky-clever-and-energetic 3 year old solehah girl. We love you so much! May Allah continue to bless and guide you Tia!!

Truth must be told.. I didn’t manage to post up this birthday shout out entry on your birthday. Not that because I love you a little less.. but because you and your siblings were as excited as I was waiting for your little baby sister! We have thought the baby would share the same birthday as you. Turned out she wants to wait 5 hours 47 minute little longer. Hihihi

Now.. how was you over the past one year..

At your childcare, your teacher described you as a very friendly and playful little girl. You would easily make friends and play with everyone in your room. Your teacher also told Mi-mi that you like to lead during activities. I guess that's the reason why you had to join the 3 year old class when you just barely past your second birthday. Alhamdulillah, you are coping well at ‘school’ and I knew you can handle anything. Hihi...

Back at home, you were less likely left to be in charge. Hihi.. Cheche and Koko would just not let you. Adoi lawak. Because of that, you love to stir the other two whenever you can. Usually, you would later come back at me and said, “Mi-mi.. Cheche don’t want to play with me” or “Mi-mi.. Koko don’t want to share his toys with me” or “Mi-mi, they don’t want to open the door”. Ololololo.. kesian pun ada

I knew, they are not to be blamed 100%. 

Tia, 

Please know that Cheche and Koko played differently these days. They made stories with their toys. So how they positioned their toys and what to do next is not the same as how you wanted them toys to be. Because your Cheche and Koko love you, they did try to put up with you by giving you other toys and setting up the toys. But that didn’t work since you really really really want to join them. I hope, the four of you will always love and cherished one another no what came between the four of you. Muahx!

To best end this entry, I would put here the usual funny conversation I had with you in the car..

M: Can I eat you?
T: Noooo~
M: Can I eat Cheche?
T: Yessss~
M: Can I eat Koko?
T: Yessss~
M: Haaaa~~ you love Cheche or not?
T: Yesssssss
M: Do you love Koko or not?
T: Yesssssss
M: If you let me eat Cheche and Koko, than there will be no more Cheche and Koko.

You would usually ended up laughing. Hihihi..

Happy birthday again Tia! Mi-mi, Ya-yah, Cheche and Koko love you so much!!! Stay happy! Muahx!

p/s: You are still a hair-puller up to this date~ :-p

Quick Post~

I am not a poet; I am not a writer,
I am just a wife and a mother,
Yet here I am squeezing my brain,
Thinking about something to write which I don't know how to begin.

Should it be about family?
Should it be about love?
Should it be about respect?
Or should it be about all of the above?

Words don't come easy for me -
Urghh how do I explain,
That without communication, a relationship will be in vain?
Be it husband and wife; be it parents and children connection,
Be it brother and sister; be it all the other relation.

Someone told me you must listen to understand - not listen to reply,
Though I don't understand it thoroughly,
I figured it meant - you must give your full attention,
And not just your emotion,
When having a conversation.

Correct me if I am wrong, because I myself am still learning,
Learning about understanding human being,
Which is such a difficult task,
That I pray I will somehow pass.

-AWA- 

p/s: It's another AWA in ma family~

Turning the 9 leaf~

It's your birthday again Jia! Happy Birthday my big girl solehah! May Allah bless you even more Jia!!! Muahx!

Another year has passed. So many new things you've explored and you've done them all mostly with Bahim. Of course with a little help from Tia. Hihihi...

As I am typing this, we are watching "Stork". When I said to all of you - "you do know babies don't come out from a baby machine, don't you?". Immediately like a twin both of you and Bahim said "yes we know". You then continue saying, "babies are from Heaven, then Allah put a baby in your tummy". :-)

After another year has passed, I see that you began to have your mind on most things i.e. you would do or choose things that you prefer. Yup.. I cannot dictate you anymore. LOL! Speaking of 'LOL', you have developed a habit of using that acronym in your daily conversation. Adeh~ I guess I am part to be blame since I used them quite a lot in my text (which you love to read.. yes Jia.. you stalk my conversation thread!).

How is you with Bahim you asked me? Well, easy. You both are very tight to the extent that you and Bahim leave little space for Tia. Hihi.. kesian Tia. I understand that she's a little too small to understand that the lego minecraft is very fragile and that she would easily break them into pieces again (which took you and Bahim as well as Ya-yah hours to build all of them. Hehe..). Having said that, it would not be fair if I didn't mention it here that there were times you would give in and spent your quality time with Tia too. ;-)

Ever since Bahim started standard one, you have helped him with his school bag. There was one morning Jia.. I was watching you and Bahim from my room. You would speak slowly to Bahim persuading him into wanting to learn how to arrange his own books. I smiled watching the whole scene because I knew given the very little (read: desperate) time every morning, I could easily snap if Bahim continue with his sulking behaviour for a little too long. Hehehe.. But you put up to him.. and Bahim listened to you in the end. May Allah continue to bless you Jia. Amiin ya Allah. 

Alhamdulillah you are among the selected few to take up the responsibility you have always wanted ever since that little incident occur. Remember that we only knew about it on the first day of school? Hihi.. When I asked how was your day with the responsibility, you told me that although you were tired since you have to look after the standard one, you enjoyed it. Among  all the mamas, I am the only one who was never selected to become one. LOL!~ All the best in taking up the amanah Jia!

Mi-mi hope you realised one important lesson Jia.. that is for as long as you have your mind to anything (having a target), without realising, your body will work for and towards it. So if you said you want to become a better person, than insyaAllah, Allah will help you to become a better person. So Jia, have more good intentions at heart and insyaAllah, Allah will help you to secure them all. ;-)

I love you Jia.. thank you for always becoming my little handy-helper and my care buddy at home. Hihi.. May Allah continue to guide you Jia. Amiin ya Allah.

Bahim @bigboyschool

Dear Bahim,

I just reached my office after sending you off to your new school.. your first day at the big boy school.

When we had to go to cheche's school to fetch her home from school, you have always roamed the school area. Starting today, you get to actually be there. :-)

Mi-mi pray that you will forever enjoy your school with your cheche, new friends and new teachers. Make friends and explore the new environment Bahim.

All the best to you.
Mi-mi loves you.
