The Mommy Diaries

Alhamdulillah, Ramadhan has come again. It was as if like yesterday that I enjoyed my first puasa with my Husband despite having a long distance marriage or as Abah always put it … “Perkahwinan Jarak Jauh (PJJ)”. Eventhough we only had the chance to berbuka and sahur during the weekends, it did not stop us in enjoying our life as a married couple.

As for this Ramadhan, we have an additional person in our life… Khayra, our bundle of joy who is currently 61 days old. The name given to our lovely daughter, after considering thousands other names, means ‘Kebaikan’.

So here I am, still at home and in the midst of completing my 2-months and an additional of 1 week ‘holiday’ – just counting the days to be a “working mom”, which is just around the corner. What freaks me out is to leave Khayra when I eventually go to work as it seems like she is getting very attached to her Ibu, especially considering that Khayra is fully breastfed (BF).

Speaking as a mom, I am fully thankful to Allah as I manage to take care of Khayra on my own; bathing her, changing her diapers, washing her clothes, waking up at the middle of night and early in the morning to BF her, to pump the milk and even still manage to wake up and prepare sahur for us and my in-laws. Don’t let me get started on the tiredness, the sleepiness and the obligations which rest on my shoulder as a wife, a mom, a daughter, a daughter-in-law, etc., etc. But despite that, I am so thankful for the helping hands from my Husband and both my parents.

Khayra now is a very cheerful baby - always smiling, calling us when she feels alone/bored in her baby cot, responds to us when we talk to her with her, making ”aah.. aahh..” sounds. She rarely cries but when she does, it is usually because she demands Ibu’s milk, which is healthily increasing her weight day by day.

Now realizing that being a mom is a very adventurous job (as I have carried so far), I truly respect every mom out there especially my beloved Ummi. I strongly believe that tiredness has never been an issue for all moms in the world because the moment you look at your baby, all the exhaustions would melt away and disappear.

For the record, below are the lists of our UiTM friends who have been blessed with a son / daughter right after Khayra was born on 01.07.2009. Congratulations guys!

My daughter, an actual person...

As I was collecting Khayra's MyKid at the Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara the other day, it suddenly dawned on me that my daughter is an actual person - she's not just my daughter; she's actually a person on her own ...

... she is a legally recognized citizen of Malaysia with her own
Birth Certificate and MyKid ...

... she is a member of the Tabung_Haji and has even registered for Haj in 2027 ...

... she even has a joint MayBank account and a member of the Yippie_Club ...

... so in reality, I'm not really raising just A BABY, am I? I'm actually raising a real person... now, if you would excuse me, I'm going to start freaking out...
