She's gonna be 9 in just a few months time.
How time flies! I remembered holding her in that stark red swaddle in APSH just moments after birth and next thing I know, we're sharing clothes (that includes inners, baby tees and tudung at the moment). How's that possible between a 36yo-mom-of-three and a barely 9yo girl? Thing is, I am small built and petite and she's not.
I can't wait for the time for us to go for girls outing and do adult things together. You know, make-up shopping, commenting and giving opinions on clothes to buy or even buying undies together! Just us (I hope the male species in this household get this message when the time comes!)
The thing is, she doesn't always agree on certain things I that I prefer for her. For example, I love her in long skirts, frilly lacey blouse, stuffs like that. But she just loves those simple straight cut tees, jeans and cargos. When at home, it's that tights (seluar nyonya, as Tebby puts it) and tees (again). Tebby once announced 'I'm a t-shirt guy' so it's obvious where she gets that trait from.
But we both are melodramatic. We both cried watching movie SEPI. We are the worry-over-nothing, helplessly-romantic type of persons. We both love books by Jeff Kinney (yes, she reads that, I'm not sure if she should though).
This, is not a birthday entry for her so save your wishes until August, will ya. The last time I wrote something like this, I got happy-birthday-and-many-returns-of-the-day thingy. I suppose we need not wait until that special day to share our thoughts. Life is something we should embrace and celebrate everyday.
I love you Kakak.
