More prestigious than the Oscars...
BJ a.k.a MrsNordin and Kak Yati Samad, somehow or rather had thought of me as one of those who deserve the The Mom of the Year Award. I'm touched and thrilled of course, but, I know so many mothers out there who deserve this more than I do. But, kecil tapak tangan, nyiru saya tadahkan. Hehehe! Thank you, thank you :)
The recipients of this award would have to come up with an acceptance speech/posting (chewaaahhh!) which must include the following -
1. Admit one thing you feel awful about (involving being a mom)
I feel awful for not being a fulltime Mom to my kids. How I wished I could just drop everything when they need me, especially when they're sick, when they need me to drive them around and chaperone them for anything, anytime, anywhere. I just feel I don't spend enough time with them now - in their "growing pains" years.
2. List 7 things you love about your kids, you love doing with your kids, or that your kids love about you.
I say...7 things only kaaaa?! Hmmmm...manyak susah ini macam. But here goes (in no particular order)
(i) I love spending time with my kids, and chit-chatting with them, especially in the car when I send or fetch them to or from their schools/1001 lessons :)and I love to go shopping with them (when we would normally argue on our choices of clothes and stuff to buy, but almost always end up with them getting their way anyway...Hehehe!)
(ii) I love that they never fail to amaze and amuse me with their totally different personalities and characters :)
(iii) I love it when they say their "pleases" and "thank yous", and when they would call me at work just to ask my permission first if they can eat the chocolates/tidbits/sweets/crisps/Maggi/snacks and the likes in the fridge/pantry at home.
(iv) I love it when they compliment my cooking and say that it's better than the food we have when we eat out :)
(v) I love it when they take turns to give me foot and body massage (no need to go to the spa maaaa...)
(vi) I love organizing parties and outings and sleep-overs for my kids and their friends (when I have time on my side, that is)
(vii) I love cooking for them. Unfortunately I don't bake. I think I will get a decent oven for the new house so that I can learn how to bake cookies and cupcakes, especially, and can spend time messing up the kitchen with them (as long as I have a maid to clear and clean everything after that, that is. Hehehe!)
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.
There are so many mothers out there who deserve this award, but for now, I'm bestowing it to these five wonderful ladies -
Ja (Dalam Dakapan Ibu)
They are truly wonderful moms, because they have truly wonderful kids :)
Cheers, y'all :)
