2011 Xmas

Of course we dont celebrate Christmas, but we have stories surrounding christmas n ahmad adib. My dear cheeky ahmad adib aka mr froggy is obsessed with snow. Due to excessive of televisions, he associates snow with christmas...i.e. the world will only snowing during christmas...and christmas is only for mat saleh in the land of mat salehs of course. I think it was last year, he was all shocked with christmas decorations in KL..and I told him...xmas is for christians and christians come in many colours not only whites. And i think from school, he learns about religions and understand that part well now.Then comes the snow...I cant remember when, but sometime this year upon knowing that dec25th is Xmas ( he checked the desk calendar), he has asked me and abah to bring the family to have a vacation in London for Xmas due to his obsession with snow. He didnt request once but many times, i was so tired to layan him that at times i said yes, just to shut him off.So he waited patiently.......
He once told me, when people are out in the street of London celebrating Xmas with Santa, we should stay in the hotel for a while and come out again playing with snow after santa has left.

Then there was this day when the weather is so hot in Kuantan and we were like craving for starbuck's ice blended, he said...we wont have this problem in London, because we can just take the snow and put it in our mouth...tak payah beli ice blended.

On another occassion, Angah was making a lot of fuss about his birthday present...Adib told Angah, nanti kat London, we ask Santa some presents and give all to Angah....tak payah mummy of charge.
Finally last friday ...2 days before Christmas...he asked me if they have piano the next day,and I told him the calss was cancelled because Christmas would be the next day...suddenly he screamed, "mummy ni kata nak gi London....esok kan xmas, adib nak main snow.."...Adoi as if London is just a drive away.........Thank god, christmas is over now...and i hope this wont repeat next year...but of course we got to think a way to fulfill his dream on touching the snow....perhaps Genting...he..he...!!

Adib and Halloween gadget

The last time we went down to KL, the city was celebrating Halloween. I have written before about Adib and his interest with Halloween. Tot it was over as he is 7 years now but I was wrong...he is more anxious now than before....I'll tell you why.
At our fisrt stop i.e. Pavillion..the was only a small kiosk...and he started, "mummy please mummy, satu aje amik yg murah aje". I said ok and left him to Abah, as I rushed to Mothercare for Aariz's soother because we left his in the car. When I rejoined them again, Adib was still "sebek" (wearing a sad face). So we went to the shop again and get him "the hand"...The hand was filled with kekabu initially but being as creative as he is, Adib asked for my permission to take it out and wear it instead.

The very next day we came accross this one shop selling all sort of party goodies...and of course halloween was the theme...and the boys were like over the moon...yes, the 2 older brothers were like tumpang sekaki....

Brought home this mask....i asked Adib to take Shrek...and he replied "mana takut shrek tu" Shrek back to the shelf... Choosing which to buy....he was looking for the scariest and freakiest

Angah chose to be Mr Anonymous...and he bought another one during his school trip to Melaka--a green anonymous mask...
Along bought 2 little mice...they look so real which chill me to the bone..for a few days, those little mice were like following me....they were in my handbag, mix with my make up, on the table , in my bed....everywhere....geram betul... The picture below was during dinner with Tok Bibah and Tok Haji...i was worried tok bibah would have a heart attack...gosh.... So finally I asked Adib...what is it with all these Halloween stuff....and he answered me,

"boleh kacau budak budak perempuan...mesti semua jerit jerit"......

There you go...begitu memberansangkan...ha..ha..ha...

Aariz and Aimran's 2011 birthday

I feel like it was only recently i gave birth to my precious baby Aariz and in a blink he is now 1 year....emmmm...not a blink a few blink blink and wallah...besar dah anak kita. He was about 3kg in March i.e. 3 months after his by right, his adjusted age , we think should be around 9 months now.
Having said that, legally he is still 1 year old. Aariz is now learning to sit on his own, loves playing with his toys...and can be more expressional these days when you talk and play with him....and he still very much into his Baby TV....
I think I will have problem to get him concentrate on his studies later on...if taking Along's as an example...Along , when he was little we bombarded him with all the disneys' movies...he could spend hours in front of the tv and he can do that until now...erkkkkk...anyway...

****in february 2011 at about 1.8kg****

During this time last year, everything about Aariz was rather uncertain...every now and then, the paeds would unveil his progress and told the worst scenarios...that was difficult to handle, most of the time I ended up with tears. Abah and Mummy, we tried our best to stay strong for each other and of course to convey the positive vibe to Aariz.
***still think he is the cutest newborn---basically this is how the unborn baby looks like snuggling in moms' tummy--masyallah***

That devastating phase is over insyallah, and now we cherish beautiful moments every minutes and every day. Aariz is also so lucky to have the 3 abangs who love him so dearly and always openly showing their affection towards him. All praise to Allah.

Another Sagitarian that we have in the family is Angah...he is 11 years old now, and will sit for his UPSR next year...Of course we are aiming for 5As....a bright boy indeed but can be rather complacent also. The truth is mummy yg takut lebih...the boys macam tak de perasaan aje...very the selamba! For Angah, wishing him happy birthday, semoga jadi anak yg soleh insyallah...berjaya di dunia dan akhirat....and I also hope he can control his anger....He can easily loose his temper.....and he tend to response too quick that he leave the thinking part to later.To handle that Abah is giving constant fact too constants I think ha..ha..ha...and now Adib is like a tape recorder "ishhh.... Sagi ni..."... Loving all of them so completely!

Early pact for 2012

In about 7 days we will be celebrating Angah's birthday, then 4 days later will be first birthday for our precious little one, Ahmad Aariz. After that , in a blink we will be in 2012. 2012 will be a challenging year for the family as Along will sit for his PMR and Angah for his UPSR. How's that? Gosh...scary thought a nightmare...i feel like it was just months back I was traumatised with Along's UPSR ..and now I have 2 to handle in a year. 2011 final exam was not a good one for both..Along, I think he only got like 1 or 2 As for ...i dont know computer literature maybe...or perhaps no A at was too bad that I dont want to remember. He got another D for Agama...I really cant undersatnd that....during my years of schooling, agama is something for extra A...and my boy got D for agama. Angah , he got 4As and 1B--B for Bahasa. So both results are not helping in reducing my turmoil in approaching 2012.

I was so mad...that i changed to "mummy monster" on the day i collected Along's result. I was so mad at Along himself and to myself as well...I hate myself when i had that "transformation" but mummy is also human , at times i just got blown away!!Sometimes, I wished i didnt do what i did...but you boys should know i had all good intention inside.

Anyway,to think about it ... I should have adopted a more strict way in guiding the boys with their studies. The truth is I dont do much than buying them the revision books...thought they are mature enough to study for their own benefits. But kids being kids, we just need to exercise our parental guidance. We need to keep a close-eye on their activities and so on.

I sat down with the boys, talked to them and we have made a pact between us for 2012.

We are going to work together for" Ace-s" and We have started right away:

1. The desk top is switched off until the next exam... for Along to show some improvement

2. No more footie ...also until the next exam..they still can take a break with activities around the house area though

3.Angah is allowed to his laptop twice daily...during day break and a nite to feed his some cyber animals..about one hour each time---he personally requested this

4.Along still allowed to the playbook once a while --for some facebooking and games

5. Along needs to finish some exercise on daily basis and let me mark them at nite.

6.They both have started their tuition this Dec
They both have shown some improvement to adhere to the pact we made and i hope all of us will keep on track until the finishing line. May Allah helps us to achieve these goals of ours...aminnn.
