It is sad when someone would think as a SAHM you can afford to lay in bed all day. Honestly I would love to do that. I would love a day to myself. To wine down. To be pampered. How is miss that! It is true what a friend of mine said. People have high expectation for a SAHM.
Does these people think we do nothing at home? I sometimes skip meal just to attend to my son. He is always looking for attention and wants me to play with him. That is why I rarely update my blog now. As I am writing this entry, my son has demand for me a few times. "Save to draft". Even going to the loo is inconvenient sometimes. Sometimes I don't even get to finish my "business" in the toilet. Even bathing has to be cut short to less than 5 minutes. I can't even remember when was the last time I got a decent eyebrow threading and waxing. If I get to do it...it is always in a rush. Time flies fast. In between waking up...preparing breakfast for my son, giving him a bath, then prepare his lunch...playtime with him and then putting him to sleep for afternoon nap....there isn't much time. Sometimes I get to clean a little...vacumn and mop the house. Even when he is taking his afternoon nap he would wake up wanting to be breastfeed. Some said that I am skinnier than before I had a child. Well try to eat at odd timing (read "whenever you can if you can") and sometimes you are unable to even finish the meal. Not the best diet right?
I have been a SAHM since October last year. Even though the best part is you get to take care of your own child, it is tiring and I had to sacrifice my job. When I sacrifice my job...means I sacrifice other things as well. And even I am not earning anything..I still pay my own bills. Where do I get the money from? My savings. Thank God for good bonus last year. Which is about to finish soon. Hmm...
Being a working mom is better since you would have a little time to yourself. Fix breakfast and lunch time at least and you get to eat unless for some reason you are involved in a huge project that makes you busy like hell. And people would say you are doing something and not just "sitting at home doing nothing". Still expectation is there. You help your spouse to make ends meat and at home you still have to take care of the household plus you won't get to see you child much. He spends 10 hours a day, 5 days a week with someone else. Honestly, I think most women nowadays are superwomen.
I may have to go back to work by June 2014 but the thought of letting someone else take care of Wildan is heartbreaking. As they say...you can't get everything. Sacrifice is always there.
To mothers out there. I salute you whether you are a SAHM, WAHM or WM..coz we always try our best! Kudos to us!

Tulah dia...beli handphone canggih tp tak make full use of all the apps yang ada. Belum sempat nak explore habis. Bila dah jadi baru mak tau apa itu Dropbox!! uwaaa!! Sesal dahulu pendapatan, sesal kemudian tiada gunanya. Hambik ko! Siap keluar pepatah lagi. I have even tried sending the micro SD card to a specialist knowing that it would cost be a thousand plus ringgit just to get back all those videos and photos. But sadly, they said it is totally corrupted. WHAT????
There is a company in German that can provide you a service to retrieve the data. Their technique is way advance and cost at least EUR400. Tapi...jauh!!!!!!! uuuwaaaa!! The one I send to in Kuala Lumpur is not using that technique. :(( I am so sad.
So, remember....BACK UP YOUR DATA!! do it at least once a month. Now I back up all Wildan's photos and videos in DropBox, PC and external HD.
If this happens to you and you want to try to retrieve the data, you may go to:

Kalau ko kaya...ko leh hantar pi Germany. Visit their website http://www.recoverfab.com
nape aku tak kaya????!!! uwaaa!!

So, we had been wanting to bring Wildan to the beach and play with sands. We live in the city..so beach is not really near. The one closest to us is in Bagan Lalang, Sepang and we went last two weeks, during CNY weekend break. It is about 1.5 hours drive. However, as we went during a long weekend, the traffic was kind of bad so it took us longer to reach there.
Wildan has always been a neat boy. He will come running to me if he gets something on his hands or feet asking me to clean it. That's why we want him to learn to get dirty a bit. hehe...and to us..beach is the safest way to get dirty. As predicted, Wildan was having a weird time at first..trying to adjust the feeling on walking on the sands bare feet. At first he didn't even want to take off his sandles. He kept asking me to clean the sands that gets into his sandles. In fact, he was the only one who went into the water with his sandles on. He didn't even want to play with the sands at the beach. Yeah...to that extend. So, hubby slowly brought him into the water and put sands on his hands and feet for him to get use to the feel of it. It took him awhile but finally he was enjoying playing in the sands and didn't even bother the sands got into his pants. LOL
We need to go again because we didn't get to eat seafood at the beach that day. We forgot to reserve a table and by the time we finish playing at the beach, the restaurants are full.

We walked for almost two hours inside the park. Can you believe it? Nonetheless, we had fun. You can also take pictures with the parrots as a certain fee. We didn't take any. Maybe next time when Wildan is bigger and able to appreciate then it would be a memorable thing for him.

I gave the first Thor movie 8/10. At first I didn't want to watch it but I followed hubby and end up liking it. :) So last Monday we went to watch the sequel "The Dark World". I give it 7/10. I think because the story line was a bit more simple but I still enjoyed it. It is to be expected that the story also revolved around Jane Foster the earth mortal. This time some supposed to be extinguish creature planned to attack Asgard and all the 9 realm and make it a dark world. It has lots of sense of humor this time mostly with Dr Erik character. Loki was surprisingly kind of funny too. This time it seems that Thor and Loki worked together to try save Asgard...or is it? Well...you have to watch the movie to know the twist. You will also get to see one of the Avengers character make a short appearance. Who? Am not giving out spoilers...so you'll need to watch it yourself. hmm...when is The Avangers sequel coming out? Does anyone knows? I can't wait for that! Some people said the sequel is slow and some said it is not worth watching. Each person has different opinion even your close friends. So, if you want to know whether you like it or not, you will have to watch and judge it yourself. To me, it is one of those not to miss movie.
We brought Wildan to cinema with us. I have never been away from him since he was born. Alhamdulillah he is able to 98% behave himself. However, there are things to help us make sure that we are able to watch the movie without interruption by him and for him not to become a nuisance to other cinema patrons. It doesn't mean that if you have problem getting a babysitter for your infants you can't enjoy a movie or two. Here are my tips which I think most parents also do the same.
- Always buy a couple/twin seats so that your child can seat or sleep comfortably when he/she wants to. You will be more comfortable too.
- Watch at night when it is near his/her bed time. We also trained Wildan to fall asleep in a noisy surroundings like in front of tv or with music on. So he won't be bothered with the movie loud noise.
- Always bring a bottle of warm milk. It is better if you breastfeed. I breastfeed Wildan to sleep in the cinema while I watch the movie. It is dark, he is fed and it is cool inside the cinema. Eventually, your child should fall asleep.
- Last but not least, if it is your 1st time bringing your infants into cinema, be ready to get out of the cinema when necessary. The 1st time we went to watch Iron Man 3 and we were ready to bail if Wildan made a ruckus. We were lucky he didn't and fell asleep after 15 minutes the movie starts until we are home.
Some people say the fun is over when you have kids...I think the fun is just starting. You just need to work on the 'how' a little bit more. :)

|"Wildan helping mummy in the kitchen"|
I didn't weigh or measure him this months since we are not scheduled for a check up. He is still lacking vocabs and only babbles things that I can't understand. Still limited to ma, ba, no...and still call dogs and cats "ateh". I do hope he will say something that makes sense to me soon. I know boys can be a bit late..but it still worries me. He loves the outdoors. Pantang buka pintu laju jer nak keluar. Wildan is a happy child and a very good boy. He is an obedient boy with an occasional tantrum so it is easy to take care of him. Few days ago, he changed his daily routine a bit and slept only once during the day. I guess that is normal. Now he loves to mimic...sometimes he will take his food bowl and spoon and feed me and comb his own hair with his comb. Today he even tried to put on his own shoes. So cute!! There are at least 5 more tooth about to come out and now he doesn't cry or scream each time I brush his teeth.
I think that's about it for now. Till next time.
