Day 15 - Laugh
My older two are getting sassier day by day. They keep 'dropping wisdom' every now and then which makes J and I laugh like anything. A couple of months back, they were waiting for J to come home after work so that he can drop them to their Grandma's place for the weekend. So J gets home and these two start nagging him and he tries to buy some time saying' I will drop you, but let me rest for a bit first'. That's all he said. 

Not sure what triggered A but she gets all wired up and says, 'No, Umma (me) won't drop us. She's tired. She does a lot of work. Then she cooks for us. Then she has babies in her tummy. You have to drop us, Umma won't drop us.' And quickly T chimes in about how his mom is always working and she should get some rest. This came out of nowhere and J sat there wondering what the hey just happened. As for me, I was in splits. I still chuckle thinking of it. 

I have to say that TnA's comments came at the right time because I remember during those days feeling bad about not doing enough or spending enough time with my children but they had a completely different point of view. Alhamdulillah. 

Day 16 - Mood
I have fallen off my wagon and haven't exercised properly for over a week now and can see that it's clearly affecting my moods. I need to step up my game and get back into the swing of things. In sha Allah. 

On a happier note, I found these sweet cherries at Spinneys last night and can't stop eating them! Yum!
