Not Easy Being a Parent

I read from one of my blogger friends about the story of a mother having a dyslexia child. It’s so easy to read about it from any reading materials. But when it happened to our friend, you start to feel different about it. It’s like something new, strange, unnormal thing had happened.

And yesterday, my hubby posed me : “Is our daughter a hyper active aggressive kid?” He asked because one of the distant cousins is having that disorder. I know he is just a bit worried. So I told him that our child is not having that.

Our girl is one active girl who can stay up just because she wants to play. She is not the type who can sit on the floor at a long period, happily playing with toys. You will see her sitting down for a few minutes, then off running here and there. Another few minutes she will be crawling, pretending she is a cat. Next she will start to rock on the rocking chair or cycling on the tricycle. And there is always something she will say to you. In full expressive way!

So here I am feeling that it is not easy to be a parent. I was able to answer my husband’s question confidently because I have read somewhere about this children disorder. Thus the knowledge is within me. But not on dyslexia. And this just overwhelms me.

I admit that I have came across some articles on dyslexia in many reading materials. But I never gave it a serious thinking about it. Only after I have read about this happening to one of my friends, do I really start to take it seriously.

For our children sake, we as parents really do have to equip ourselves with the necessary knowledge. Just imagine if our child have autism or dyslexia or any disorder or illness that we just didn't notice it! I do know that some or most of us are busy & too caught up with our daily lives . Thus , it's easy not to notice any physical or obvious signs & symptons.
But if we just have that little knowledge inside all of us, I'm sure we will be doing them a very big help. Actually help is not the correct word to use..Cause it's our responsibilities to raise them up to be a good human being.

So count our blessing when our children is sparred from all those things. As for the others, lend them an extra help if can, or even our ears, or even understanding.

In the mean time, it's back to reading. Read and read...

Friends who enriched us

Last week was one happy week for me as I got to be in touched in my old friends. Thanks to Facebook, I found most of my old friends when I was studying in univercity.. The excitement I felt was beyond words. I was feeling happy inside out since last Wednesday. And the happy feelings extended till today as I had small outing with my two closed friends on late Saturday afternoon.

Imagine seeing those familiar faces u had always seen during your uni years on facebook! And those familiar names too... I was grinning when one of my friends mentioned the name of one of our male friends.. Gosh! I have not heard that names in the last 15 years... He was one of the member of our matriculation executives club...The club was one of the active club that time..We always did motivational projects for highschool kids around Kedah&Perlis..

As expected most of us are happily married with children. But I didn't expect the hear this one sad news. One of my girlfriends is now a divorcee with two children . And the things that I keep on seeing like a common thing is that they married their own partner from the uni years. I just dont understand why did their marriages cannot last forever... Anyway, what important now she is happy with her current life.

Back to my outing with Ro & Nurru on Saturday petang at KLCC, I just wanna say alhamdulillah because we did to do it. I'm happy to see Nurru getting promoted to be senior lecturer while Ro is finally now well payed from a new sms company. I pity Ro for she was paid peanuts at the old company even when she had worked there for more than 5 years.

Seeing Nurru dressing like a model ( plus she got that model height actually) since the day we know her, me & Ro never thought that Nurru would end up being a lecturer.In fact she too didn't see herself in that profession actually in the 1st place . But now she loves doing researches & lectures. Ooh! My model-like friend has produced 2 books so far.. Now this mother to two boys are on PHD study leave. I even told her that I want to attend one of her lectures!

I have always believe that no matter how busy we are with our family matters, we still need to put a side some of our precious time for friends. Actually friends-outing is one of my new year resolutions . There are still more of my friends ( be it from highschool or uni years) that I have lost contact that I wish to see again. I dont mind if we cant meet up. So long as we can stay in touch via emails or phone calls will do for me.

So have anyone heard this name before " Norita Suraya " ? I dreamt of her when I was pregnant with my 1st child.

p/s : to those who loves choc milkshakes, please buy yourself one from California Pizza Kitchen @ KLCC. It's heavenly creamy chocolaty and milky!

That's her with her two most favourite soft toys! Rabbit@ Bit Bit & Blue Bear.. And thesedays, she likes to have her pictures taken in every pose that is sometimes so funny. And for a quick snap, I'll just use my camera HP for it. These two pictures were take while waiting for her Baba to come home from work.. To keep her from suddenly go leleh&cembeng missing her Baba, I offered to take her photo. It's one of the many things I have to come up to occupy her minds with other things apart from her baba..

Yep, that's our little Munckin who can go leleh& cembeng all of a sudden. All because she misses her Baba. Almost everyday she tell me & hubby how she cried missing for us.. ( I'm no 2 ).

50th Birthday's gift

Sunday marked a new era for Malaysia's political scenerio. The opposition party have gained people's trusts in certain states in Malaysia. Most of Malaysian including myself are waiting to hear what our PM have to say about this.No doubt that he had given his comments on Saturday nite. But what are his plans after this election. Yesterday, the much waited comments from our last PM was aired on Astro. I have to agree to what he said. And how his comments hit the right target. I do hope BN will

So what's in store for Malaysian after this election? I do have my worries.But I do hope those who won will live up to their promises. Malaysians voted those winning parties for it's manifestos . Let's wait & see what lies ahead of us..

and yeah, to those who likes reading, why not try reading Dr M's book on Malay Dilemma. There are still certain's issues in itthat I think still relevant to today's Malays. Who are we without our history!
