Ramadhan and the Kids

Before I forget, Happy Fasting to all Muslims around the world!! May this Ramadhan be a prosperous month for us all, semoga diberkati Allah.

Ramadhan has been pretty ok so far. We went back to my in-laws for the 1st weekend since it was also the start of the school holidays. I didn't do much but I did manage to squeeze in a shopping session with hubby at JJ, Ayer Keroh. I wanted to buy something for myself but as always, I end up buying clothes for the kids. And underwear for myself. It's always underwear for me. At RM10 for 4, I just can't resist!! I need to ween out the ones that I'm not wearing anymore like my Victoria Secret undies that I brought back from the US. They're like 13 years old!! Hah!!

Dania has been fasting so far. The 1st day was a bitch; she kept inquiring about the time every 10 minutes! I was almost tempted to make her eat something just so she would shut up!! Fortunately it's been getting easier. She relishes the fact that she can get up whenever she wants to and watch cartoons all day. I don't know how she's gonna fare when school reopens next week but I've given her some motivation to fast the whole month; RM100 to put towards her new bike.

Dina, on the other hand, has been really cheeky. First she wanted to fast like her sister but of course that resolution lasted like 10 minutes. Then she's eating every single biscuit, cheese slice and banana right in front of her suffering sister! Sabar je la.

Daria...oh my, she's been such a delight. I can't remember if the others were this much fun when they were a baby but Daria has been such a thrill to come home to. She's so attentive and talkative and her smile lights up like a 1000 watt bulb. If you tickle her, she'll start chuckling and it's the most sweetest sound ever. When she wakes up in the morning, she doesn't cry but starts cooing for your attention. And her cheeks....bite sized!!

I had a seminar these last 2 days and I'm telling you, Ramadhan is not a good time for that kind of stuff. Eventhough the facilitator was really good, I was falling asleep half the time. Plus no lunch so what's the point of having a seminar in a hotel when we can't stuff ourselves during the lunch buffet?

We're going to my parents' place this Thursday and probably staying there until next Monday. How much are you willing to bet that my mom is gonna drag me to bridal outlets to look at more stuff for my brother's wedding? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

Oya, my mom's birthday is this Saturday. I have no idea what to get her. That women has everything she needs plus more. Sheesh...

I should really go get some shuteye now. Good nite folks.

AJB: Thanks. I don't know why I hang on to these underwear for so long. Nostalgia?

TOAJ: 1) Tudung ko x standard ibu aku. Hee.
2) Bukan makan, tapi simpan. Buat stok utk kecemasan. ps: En Rashid komen.
3) Masalahnya x reput langsung!! Tu yang sayang nak buang tu...
