"Ibu, do you mind telling me the story of Ikan Nun and Nabi Yunus?"
If it was for the third time of the day already, I would just asked her to go to Abi instead.
"Ibu, nak Ibu pakaikan seluar." Always when I nursed Aisha.
But lately was,
"Nak ikut Ibu pergi kerja."
"Nak Ibu manjakan Khaira."
Then I realized it has been the longest time since I spent a quality time with her.
Right after my industrial training visit on Friday, I rushed back home. Arrived slightly before 6pm, picked her up, off to Jusco. I only have an hour, but I was determined to make it a quality time.
I dropped off at Studio R and bought her a new pair of slipper.
Then to Jusco to buy her a dress and 3 blouses.
Because this week Khaira moved to Book 3 (she was the first one to start book 3, it's only May), she deserved all the presents. Teacher targeted book 3 for 5 y.o.
Another dress for Aisha, 2 pairs of leggings and 2 new sippy cups.
Looked at the clock, it was just 45 minutes, such shopping skills I acquired as a mother of two now. *blows nail*
"We still have 15 minutes before 7pm. Would you like a slice of cake?"
She hugged me.
This reaction is priceless.
