i owe a couple of tags.

first is the supermom from mar @ momma-mia.
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!
i feel extremely bad not being able to cook for the boys. sometimes there's just not enough time in a day. i do try to cook over the weekend, usually making something very simple so that i dont have to slave over the stove. sometimes, the boys would wake up from their naps and ask for food and i cringe because the kitchen is empty. i usually resort to giving them cookies, i know that is an easy way out. i cant wait for the day when my kitchen is constantly stocked up with nutritious home-cooked food the boys can enjoy.

2. List 7 things you love about your kids, you love doing with your kids, or that your kids love about you.
(i) i love the fact that they are so close in age. that way they learn together, they grow together, they play together. they have a very close relationship, despite fighting all the time. they usually ask for one another if the "4 ninjas" are not complete. they associate things with the four of them.

(ii) they actually love my singing. i have the most awful voice yet they constantly want me to sing to them. when they're about to go to sleep i have to sing the theme song from every single playhouse disney shows. and then go into my 'on top of spaghetti' rendition and then make up songs until they fall asleep.

(iii) they are so genuine. sometimes we wear something we havent worn in a long time (for me, it would be baju kurung) and they would just stare with wonder and just go 'cantik nya mummy'. its so simple yet so genuine.

(iv) the 6 of us still share a room. i'm not sure if its because they cant sleep without us or we cant sleep without them. and i'm not sure if its a good thing but i like it and they like it.

(v) i love their individuality - amir the chatterbox (but at times he irritates the heck out of me), asyraf the handsome (of course i cant see that when he starts screaming the house down), ariff the adorable (but now he's getting to be a handful), akmal the kurus (he' still kurus!)

(vi) i like that they want to be a part of each other and a part of us. when we tickle one, the rest would come a running and ask to be tickled too. when we kiss one, the rest would come a running and ask to be kissed too. they always scream out 'amir nak jugak' or 'asyraf pulak'.

(vii) i learn a lot from them. being a mummy is not just about teaching, its also about learning - learning to be patient, learning to take things easy, learning about new medicine, new diseases, new things in the market, learning about children, learning their language, learning their characters, learning what they like and what they dont like, learning to let go of your time, learning to live with 4 hours of sleep. its a journey full of new things and a journey i'm happy to take.

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.
i'd like to nominate my mummy's club, everyone of them are supermoms -
(i) dayang nolie

(v) gee
(vi) cujie

mommamia said...

wah!salute u can sing to the boys until they fall asleep,kalau i,i yg 'jalan' dulu,anak2 tak tido i yg slamat zzz

tpkan bab anak ckp lapar nak mkn then dapur lak empty mmg sedih la,u at least la resort to cookies,i kdg2 rebus maggie jer,dahla maggie tu tak elok utk budak2,tp bg la gak kalu dah takde pilihan,terasa diri ibu kejam la plak bg anak mkn maggie huuhu(anak i perut melayu sally,biskut2 ni tak jln,nak mknan heavy gaaak)

eiseai said...

mar...kadang2 i terlelap gak. tapi yg pasti si EI tu 100% akan zzz dulu.

tu lah kan, sedih betul takde food utk the boys. kadang2 malu gak kat cikgu2 diorang. asal monday morning je diorang ckp the boys nampak kurus. bila diorang dgn cikgu, naik gomok terus.
