After a week of 24/7 being a temporary SAHM, I don't know if I can cope to be full time SAHM in future. It's tensed, full of drama, constant nagging, the kids always have something to fight with each other (the boys) and so on. And when they're being friends with each other, they ransack their toys, almost all of them. On my part, it's a constant cleaning up, pulling the boys apart when they're in one of their wars, scrubbing, mopping, washing, folding and so on. Oh, I just did one chore I hate most, ironing and dam* proud having it done hu hu.
Anyway, despite that, I have 3 things that I have successfully accomplished within that week..
1. Finally, Iman is 100% diaper-free! Wiiiiiiii!!!!! Remember this entry when we started his toilet training end of last year? (well, potty sounds too young and cute for an almost 6yo huh) and in early February he was still in diaper for poo-poo and night sleep? Read here about that. He was wailing for diaper when the urge for poo-poo came but I did not budge. He didn't do it that day. The next day he was wailing (again) for diaper. I was afraid he might get constipated but I was also afraid he would not be able to be fully toilet trained by next year. So, what's the catch? A big robot (which he'll get after 10 times going to the toilet to poo-poo, so far he's done it less than 10). Him being diaper-free is not so free for me. But anyway, I am so happy we've came through another milestone.
2. Iman is less attached with Kikkor. Kikkor is his bestest buddy no one can beat. Kikkor was with him since he was born, so they're almost of the same age he he. Kikkor has been to everywhere Iman went. School, balik kampung, holidays, you name it.. always. After some pujuk rayu and what nots, he has started to leave Kikkor in the car when we go out and now he leaves Kikkor at home for that matter. But, during his nap and night sleep, Kikkor is still there, all cuddled together with Iman. I hope soon we can pack Kikkor in the toy box and put away in the store room, along with Kakak's Pah.
3. The third thing is not about Iman. Being 24/7 with the kids is not easy, especially during hotspell such as now. The kids begged to go out but it was too hot and I had to think about occupying them in the house. After the sun is a bit down, bukak aje pintu depan, perghhh... berlari-lari semua sarung selipar keluar main kat lawn. So petang-petang while the kids kick balls, running their hands on the sides of my car sampai tangan hitam or simple pulling and pushing each other, I prune the trees, taruk baja, get rid of some small bushes (really, I have them in my lawn already *sigh*), alihkan some potted plants. Penyodok, scaper, gunting pokok sampaikan ke cangkul, all I used for my mission. Now the lawn is in a much better shape. Don't ask why I like gardening, it just grows in me as I grow older. When I was younger, I was pelik as well at how people can take gardening so seriously. Now I know.
Anyway, 3 major things (by my standard) in a week time. Imagine what happen if it's a month? Or a year? Maybe the kids will beg me to go back to work anyway. Too much nagging he he!
