2 more nights to go

Last night was impossible. All three woke up crying ad wanted MY attention. uZAir obviously wanted my b**by, athirAh wanted to sleep while hugging on me while hArith wanted to be carried.

Well, considering we survived the night, i guess i shall put it as it was ALMOST impossible. 2 more nights to go!!!

Anyway, i had a big smile drawn on my face after finishing reading this from a magazine:

What does a housewife do all day


A man came home from work one day and found total mayhem.

The three children were outside, still in their pyjamas, playing in the mud. Empty food boxes . and wrappers were strewn across the yard.


When he went inside, the mess were even worse. A lamp had been knocked over, and the throw rug was wadded against the wall. In the front room, the TV was loudly blaring on a cartoon channel, and the family room was strewn with toys and clothing.

In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, cereal had been spilled on the counter, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door.

He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over more piles of clothes and toys, to look for his wife.
He was becoming worried that she may be ill, or that something serious had happened.He found her in the bedroom, still curled in the bed in her pyjamas, reading a book.

She looked up at him and smiled and asked how his day went. He looked at her bewildered and asked, "what happened here today."

She smiled and answered, " You know how everyday when you come home from work, you ask me what I do all day.

"Yes", he said baffled.

"Well," she said, "today I didn't do it".

MommyAdam:
aida, i think u r the rite person to do a post on being a SAHM and working mom. some ppl think that SAHM just sit at home goyang kaki (arrghhh, geram tul bile org respond that way)

its not easy to make them understand that it is indeed more tiring, we dont have fix lunch hour 1-2pm where we can sit without disturbance. oh another thing we can't run away from the sound of our anak nanges or merengek2 tanpa sebab.

im not saying career women is much easier but at least dont give the look of "oh dok rumah jer"

mommy of triplets, i luv your triplets so much. wish i could have one. got award for you. please do come to my blog :)

I know! You are so true munirah.. I hate it when they sinically give me that 'look' and commented, 'Ala takpe, you duduk rumah je'. Serious? duduk rumah je? waduh waduh, sungguh manis mulut mereka berkata2.

SAHM works around the clock, siang dah puas menjaga anak, doing house chores, malam berjaga for feeding lagi. Waktu makanla, paling tak tentu arah. There's this one time, punyela occupied menjaga dua budak perempuan tu, I sampai pening lalat gigil lutut sebab tak sempat makan..

But I truly enjoy what I do, there's nothing more satisfying than seeing your babies grow before your eyes and become the children you always dream of and knowing that it was all because of you.

Salute to you and all the SAHMs and me too.

tu lar kn, how i wish to kasi ceramah panjang to them but then again i knoe there's no point to it coz they will still remain with their perspective "alar dok umah jer". one need to be in our shoes to know how it is like kn.

how i wish to ask them, "can u just drop ur pen or walk away from ur desktop if u in need to go to the toilet? coz for sure i can't just drop my kids and walk away to the toilet" byk kali gak my kids ikut i masuk toilet "teman" i buang air..ahhahaha

other than tat, nk solat, makan, mandi sume kena tergesa2 kn

munirah,
oh yeah i think i ought to do a comparison entry about being a working mom and a SAHM. For the first couple of months i spent many nights crying to my husband out of sheer exhaustion! and yes Adam does come with me into the toilet too.he's seen me plenty. whatever, better than having him jump off the sofa into the coffee table while i;m in the toilet! being a housewife mmg kerja tak bergaji dan no break time/holidays! but still, you can;t beat the satisfaction that you get raising your kid with your own hands kan..
