Day 3 : Without pApa

3rd day without pApa + 3 babies = Sleep Deprived


uZAir decided to do qiamulail last night. I slept at about 11-ish and was awaken by uZAir’s cry at 2:20am. Started feeding him but that did not put him back to sleep. I even heat up the EBM hoping that if I give him one shot skaligus banyak it would put him to sleep but I was wrong. He wanted to be cradled all night long. At 5:50am (yes uZAir still refused to go to sleep) athirAh woke up. I gave her milk but she didn’t want to drink. I was very zombie by then and hArith decided to join the 3 of us. It was 6:20 and all 3 were awake. I kept athirAh occupied by playing wiggles on You Tube but hArith wasn’t interested (in fact hArith doesn’t seem to like any TV programme).

It was almost 7am and my maid has completed her morning chores so she took hArith and athirAh to play with their toys in the living room. I send uZAir to my mom since she has finished her Subuh prayer. At last, at 7am I went to sleep. Unfortunately I couldn’t have my beauty sleep for long coz at 8:30, uZAir was back with me (and still wide awake!) cause my mom has plans that morning with her friends. uZAir wanted to be carried all the time or else he will cry out loud. So basically I had just few hours of sleep. And it was just impossible to sleep during the day…and I find it amazing that I could still function normally ;)

Of cause I was sleepy (and still sleepy), but after reading a link my friend placed in her blog…I suddenly feel energetic and fully recharge. Basically this was the highlight of the link:

In addition, Anas relates this hadith from al Tabarani:Sallama, the nurse to the Prophet’s (sallalahu aleyhi wa salaam) son Ibrahim said, ‘O Messenger of God, you have brought tidings of all good things to men, but not to women.’ He said, ‘Did your women friends put you up to asking me this question?’ ‘Yes, they did,’ she replied, and he said,’ Does it not please any one of you that if she is pregnant by her husband and he is satisfied with that, she receives the reward of one who fasts and prays for the sake of Allah? And when her labor pains come, no one in the heavens or the earth knows what is concealed in her womb to delight her? And when she delivers, not a mouthful of milk flows from her, and not a suck does she give, but that she receives, for every mouthful and every suck the reward of one good deed. And if she is kept awake at night by her child, she receives the reward of one who frees seventy slaves for the sake of Allah.’”

The article talks about breastfeeding too =)

hi there! being a mother is 24-7-365 work maa...mmg x cukup tidonyer lah, tp seronok jgk.kalo we all yg keje ni maybe leh nap during lunchbreak (tak jgk sbb nak pump)but as u're SAHM, dpt agak jgklah camne..lucky those mums yg ada outstation,at least leh dpt 1-2 nights 'full' sleep kan?

so redha n ikhlas (huhuu...kdg2 time moody tu, hangin jgk) baru dpt pahala!

fuhh finally ade gak org paham tat SAHM can be more tiring. most pppl kate working mom lagi penat coz they think i kat rumah bleh bgn lmbat and goyang2 kaki kot. but the truth is like u said, we dont even have a fix lunch break. nk makan and solat pun tekejar2.

babe, mainan ur kids yg ada balls tu beli kt mana. dia skali gn balls ke atau kena beli asing.

mOmmy of Triplets said...

jua:
i bought it online kat littlewhiz.com and the balls i beli kat toys r us. its around rm70 per bag (each bag ade 50 balls)

tapi i baru sedar kat little whiz pun ade jual pool ball (balls provided) at a cheaper price. check out the website and kt column tepi tu u go " Playing by Type" then click to "Playground and playhouses", have a look at the My Dear: Ball Tent.

or u can also cek category inflatable toys, My Dear: Ball Pool. tu pun inclusive of 100 balls
