Seems like I survived the 10 days without him, of course with hiccups but it's manageable. My parents are kind souls came down all the way from Besut just to accompany me and the kids. My boss also another kind soul that let me work from home (if I got no meeting) due to my driving fear.
Anyway, things are easier when I work in the office. I worked from home for 2 days and tell you what, it is almost impossible! Even though my mom is in the house, the kids are super clingy whenever I am around. They want to bathe, eat, sleep, play with me. Every little thing. Kids.
Ok, just want to recap on the dramas during his absent.
Emir has been crying during the first night until 2 AM! That's so not him. He even refuse the normal comfort - breastfeeding and keep on looking at one spot and cry cry cry, up to a point I think he saw a ghost is making faces. Yeah, he cries that bad. I think he miss his daddy so much. I have to carry and console him and around 2AM I think he's so tired already and fell asleep on his own. Zahra on the other hand slept throughout the night.
Zahra's appetite was a bit low these few days and she refused to eat. So this one day she didn't eat much and she still awake at 1AM even after few bottles of milk and I even BF her. I fell asleep before and when I accidentally woke at 1AM, she was still awake watching youtube on the iPad, so of course I got so mad. I siap marah and said "Zahra nak tengok iPad sangat tengok kat luar". It was pitch dark at the hall and guess what, she went out and watch the iPad in the dark, Jiwa kental betul. So after a while I drag her in and scold her and ask what she wants, lapar ke apa ke and suddenly she vomits out. Aduhhhhh... Again, Zahra is not the type yg muntah, so kalau muntah tu means mmg she unwell. Kalau tak salah I dia pernah muntah 3 or 4 kali within her 2y8m life.
Emir cuts his lip, not once but twice! The first one, he is playing with Zahra and I think they are sleepy that time (around 11PM plus) and tup-tup Emir falls to the front, and Zahra falls to the back and bang her head on the floor. I quickly attend Zahra then Emir is wailing semacam, and tengok2 blood gushing over. The cut is quite deep and I can't really press the cut to stop the bleeding, because he keeps on tepis my hand. All he wanted was to BF so I just bagi so dia minum la dengan darah2 tu. Thank God it stops after a while. Anyway, I didn't really panic because that is the 2nd time it happens, the first time was in Awana Kijal during our raya vacation, itu I story later. The 2nd drama was last night, he accidentally fell while holding a plastic cup and the cup graze his lips. Blood gushed all over again. Haihhh anak mommy ni...
The Blonde moment
Whenever I go to work, I'll drive Emir to babysitter and leave Zahra at home, because my mom wants to play with Zahra and Emir is so lasak, she can't really handle him. So the first day I drive, I use the smart tag lane like usual but this is my first time handle it (the smart tag thingy doesn't stuck at the mirror, I have to hold it upright) and I don't know what went wrong, it doesn't work. Just imagine..I have to reverse, and go front, reverse again, go front again..for few times..ugghhh!! Then the tolgate girl came and help me to scan the smart tag. Well, apparently I hold it the wrong way (I think so, because I didn't really check it, dah berpeluh satu badan malu okkk, ada kereta kat belakang), so in the end, I pull it out from the tag and use the normal touch n go after that.
Very funny, the moment MrComot out from Malaysia, I got cough bug and keep on coughing badly. You know how annoying it is right? batuk batuk batuk siang malam. Soooo uncomfortable. And a few days after that, the bug spread to the kids. But as of today, all of us getting better. I took the ubat batuk canp ibu dah anak and the kids baik sendiri.
Another funny thing, I got my first gastric ever (after being married) today. I don't know what went wrong..I mean, I didn't skip my meal and everything is fine, except that I took out the ubat batuk cap ibu & anak from the fridge last night, plan to eat it before I sleep, then after I put all the kids to bed, I fell asleep while BF-ing Emir and only got up at 4AM because of bad cough. So I quickly go to the kitchen and eat the medicine, without eating anything else, and at 6AM I was woken up by a painful cramp and feels like vomiting, etc. The stomach feels so 'bisa', you know, macam orang toreh2. My head is spinning around and all I want to do is just lie down and sleep, but of course I can't, dua-dua orang tu melompat-lompat.
Overall, it's a challenging week but I survived! Well, WE survived! Hehe. Things only got harder during the night because both of them are fighting to sleep at the same time. My parents has been very wonderful, even though my mom is a bit unwell, so that's why she can't really handle the kids, but they have been very helpful. Because Emir just got another skill - walking and climbing! Yes people, Emir can walk already! (MrComot missed the moment and he cried watching Emir walking during the skype session! Such a softie :P).
So even though the days are not perfect, at least I managed to stay
Can't wait for my big baby to come back. Please kids, stay well and behave ok, we got few more hours to go.
