Mom of the Year Award!

I’ve been tagged by Kitchen Guardian for "Mom of The Year Award". Thank you! Thank you!

In terms of experience, I have very little mumsy experience compared to other mothers out there. But the magnitude of it may be a lot more than what mothers of 10-15 years may have experienced.

So, here goes:

1. Admit one thing you feel awful about (involving being a mom)

A lot! But the one thing that I feel most awful about is not being able to shower them with more love and affection. I’m very garang... I wish I’m more like that mother in the susu Dutch Lady advertisement. Anak kotorkan baju pun, she just geleng kepala and smile. I’d be tearing my hair and go, “WHAT HAVE YOU DONE??!!!” Hee.. hee… you see?

2. List 7 things you love about your kids, you love doing with your kids, or that your kids love about you.

i. I love it when I see Nizzar waiting for me at the door when I get home from work
ii. I love it when my children say, “Thanks for doing this for me”.
iii. I love it when I hear they call me Mummy
iv. I love to watch horror movies with them ~ at night, after dinner, with lots of tit bits on the coffee table.
v. I love to take them out for a drive at night, either to the shop to buy stuff or KLCC for browsing & makan2.
vi. I love to take the boys for a hair cut at the Indian barber and watch them transform into handsome boys
vii. I love it when I hear people say, “Anak you baik... hormat orang tua...” That’s the best compliment ever!

(actually, I don't quite know what they love about me. Perhaps we should ask them)

3. Send this to 5 other moms of the year that deserve a reminder that they too are the best moms that they can be.

i) Mdm Tai Tai
ii) MA & Brood
iii) Ezza
iv) Busymum
v) Wanshana

Congrats! Yup - you deserve it, girlfren!

Thanks for bestowing it to me too. Yatt did the same. I'll try to do it later, k.

MA and Brood said...

Oops - dapat award ka? Adehh...I am not done with my travels just yet. Nanti I buat ya..

wanshana said...

Congrats, BJ! You ARE a wonderful mom to your children:)

Thank you for bestowing the award to me, too! I say...I'd better start on it soon. Kak Yati Samad also named me as a 'recipient' in her blog. And I've been tagged in a few notes in FB, too (albeit on different tasks) Banyaklah pulak nak bayar hutang...

Mrs N, there's no written rules about being a mum. kalau ada, kan senang hidup kita? The same with being a child. so we learn through trial and error.

But I personally think you've done well.
