Every Saturday & Sunday, my days would be filled with looking after Nizzar. I cannot do anything else but to keep an eye on that little boy. Last weekend was no exception. From the moment he woke up, all he wanted was “Mummy! Mummy! Mummy!”
So, while other people could do their own things like watching TV, read books or just do nothing, I couldn’t even sit down for 5 minutes to rest. That little boy always had something to touch, pull or destroy, much to my annoyance especially when I see other people in the house relaxing and did not offer any help. It's so unfair!
That little boy has picked up a new activity last weekend ie. Facial for Mummy. He would instruct me to lie down ~ “Baring, Mummy… baring!” ~ and then we would take a face towel and place it on my chest (but not before he “kibas” the towel first, like how the Indian barbers did when they cut his hair).
Next, he would pull out a facial tissue and place it on my face. Using his little fingers, he would slowly press the tissue. Then, he would take entah apalah that came in handy (at one time, it was a water flask), and made a circular motion on my face with seriousness showing on his face. When I asked him, “Dah?”, he’d quickly retorted, “Jap… Jap…!” (as in “kejap, kejap!”) and he’d take something else to continue the ritual.
Hee.. hee…. Macam tu lah sampai 4, 5 round. Lastly, he would take a comb and comb my hair, and with his small hand, he would lift the back of my head, and push me up in a gesture that the facial has ended. And he’d finish it with a sweet, “Thanks, Mummy!” and smile.
Ahhhhh… he’s so cute…!!
