Penyapu Overwhelmed

I missed writing about Emir's development like I did for Zahra those time..will try to catch up that soon. Anyway, a short note, he is 1 1/2y now, very active toddler, but still can't utter a single word! Even mommy or daddy. That's pretty weird. I'm kinda worried, but not much. I'll let him has his pace..maybe until he's two. Is it too late?

Anyway, while he still at 'penyapu phase', lets talk about it :)

My little guy, seriously I don't know what's twirling in his mind or his imagination, he loves sweeper very much. Like very very very much. The sweeper is like his second hand or something. He will hold the sweeper everywhere and all the time, even when he's playing with something else. Macam tongkat sakti dah pulak.

Since he likes sweeper so much, we decided to buy a new one for him, so that he can keep it to himself and of course will be cleaner as I won't use it for house chores. We bought at Daiso, where everything is at RM5. They have lots of small broom which is perfect for my handsome boy.

 Zahra choosing the sweeper

Emir was super excited when he saws the arrays of sweeper and I had to buy two pieces because Zahra also wants it (she's currently in jealousy phase where she wants everything that Emir has. She even request us to call her "baby Zahra" instead of "kakak Zahra").

The moment I picked up the broom, Emir was restless and struggling to get himself off the stroller that I had to let him hold the sweeper, then baru duduk diam and happily sweeping the floor or more like dragging it in the stroller hehehe.

The moment he got the sweeper

The "sweeping" doesn't only happens in Daiso, he's holding it tight everywhere, in fact the whole Curve. I tried to get it off but the moment I did that, he wails top of his lung and bang himself in the stroller as a protest.

Sweeping The Curve

We stop at kids playground in front of Mothercare, level 2 to take turn for Maghrib prayer. That place is Emir's fav place. Normally I will let them loose there while waiting for MrComot, but that day since he refused to let go the sweeper, I had to strap him in ther stroller and only Zahra plays in the playground. Guess what? He doesn't mind a bit ok!! I tried once get him off the stroller and off the sweeper and bawak main the slides, etc..dia mengamuk jatuhkan badan on the floor, bang his head, refused to let go the sweeper. Mana boleh bawak penyapu kan..kang tak pasal-pasal kena anak org. So in the end he stays in the stroller alone, sambil pegang  penyapu. Adohaii...

Had dinner at Tony Romas and it was a disaster sebab again he refused to sit in the baby chair sebab nak menyapu sampah satu restaurant! Adoyaii.. it was cute at first but after a while not nice la kan..because the place is not that spacious and he will go to other's table and sweep the floor. We had to eat in rush, feed Zahra lagi..take turn bring him out, depan Tony Romas tu ada space kosong besar, where he can sweep whatever he wants. So I let him loose there where I stood quite far jugak from him about 3-4 meters mcm tu. He was happily doing his job. The passerby was amused by his action and ada la yg senyum2. Pekerja TR tu siap buat sign Emir menyapu + thumbs up, bolehhh?? Sabar je la..tak sure, nak gelak ke nak malu hahaha.

Bangun pagi je cari penyapu. Initially, the pink was for Zahra and the orange one is his, but in the end he conquers both.

 Throw himself on the floor when I asked for the sweeper.

Zahra playing with bubbles, he doesn't care a bit. 

Naik moto pun nak pegang penyapu. Macam tongkat sakti kan? Remind me of Gandalf lol.

Last but not least, this will be my most favourite pics of all. The moment when he can't decide which one to hold.

Penyapu overwhelmed!

Haha it was very funny! He wanted to have them all! This is the weirdest obsession I've come across with my kids. How about your kids? What't their obsession?


  1. I've not been following your blog for a while cos i was busy... and i recently caught up with your kids development again... Emir is soooo cute! Especially the last pic where he couldn't decide which broom to pick! :)

  2. Nanti aunty import Emir dengan broomnya sekali ke rumah ye?

  3. Aan, my second son pun suka penyapu.klu masuk daiso, mmg bg dia "sapu" satu daiso sambil kita belek brg..

    Tapi selain penyapu dia suka bola...so klu xde penyapu bg bola...so smbil beli brg layan sepak bola (balik soping sume pengsan)

  4. He's the cutest sweeper I've ever seen! Hehehe....

  5. At least he did sweep! Danish sweep kejap then nk pukul org. Stress aku.
