KIDS PROGRESS

It’s been sooooo long I wanted to write on this entry.. soo much to say about the kids but sooo little time and energy to write.. As you know, I am all alone without my mom’s help here now.. It’s very tiring and challenging taking care of the kids and house.. started early morning, my job will only end after en suami arrived home late at night and serving dinner,do some washing, around 11pm.. uhukkk.. PENATNYA!

Tak payahla membebel pasal kerja.. lagi penat dibuatnyaa.. πŸ˜›Β  It’s been a month + we’ve arrived back here.. the kids has been settling down, but the family has been caught by stomach flu, cough and cold.. It’s a changing season to spring and many of us started to get sick, diarrhea etc.. some of my friends told me that if you did not get sick during winter time, you will get sick at the end of the season?? not sure if it’s true on not.. but this is our 2nd year we facing the same issue.. luckily this year wasn’t so bad as last year..

Aisyah has been doing well in her school last week..she has won book cover competition in her class and again for student of the week.. this is the second time in the year she got that award..congrats my dear girl!

Aliyah just recover from cough and flu last two weeks.. 1 week absent from school..Alhamdulillah now she’s fine and healthy again..lately she’s been saying that she does not like to go to school..because she don’t like writing.. well for 5 years old girl they just want to play and have more fun..I just told her that it’s ok if you don’t want to write as long as you would be able to read that’s just fine.. nanti asyik paksa jee ke skolah takut boring pulak budak ni.. Besides school, she likes to talk a lot.. this is one ofΒ  her spontaneous video.

Aliyah is 5 today!

I still remember gave birth to Aliyah 5 years ago in KJMC..it was on Saturday just after maghrib.. Since it was my first experienced in Malaysia, the fear of going to labor room just as the same as my first pregnancy..

My hubby was at work that day, leave me and my parents waiting if I wanted to go to hospital. I said I still can bare the pain. I remembered my midwife in UK, she said, “you only can come to hospital when you cannot smile anymore.. If you are in pain but still can smile.. it means you are not ready for your labor.”Β  πŸ˜› At first I taught it can be that bad..but it is true!Β  With Aliyah, I waited until I really cannot even smile and can’t managed the pain anymore, then I decided to go to the hospital. 7.00pm, after my hubby came from work, we straight away go to the hospital, which is onlyΒ  in front of our house.. LOL! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€Β  When we arrived, the nurse called the doctor, and they get ready for the deliver..Alhamdulillah, just after Maghrib, around 7.45pm Aliyah was born on 18th March 2006.. It such a quick and easy labor for my second child, contrast to Aisyah with almost 11 hours in labor room!

When she first arrived here, 3++ yo

My baby girl Aliyah already 5 years old! And already in primary school! Happy for her.. πŸ™‚

p/s:need to back-dated the article to her birth date.. lama sangat x update blog.. πŸ˜›

Asthma attack again!

Last Friday, Aliyah started coughing..and I gave her normal puff of ventolin. Not even 3 hours the coughing did not stop.. I gave her more puff.. and still not settled.. This mean her asthma attack come again. So we took her to the clinic. There’s only ONE doctor and there are many patients waiting.. We had to wait for almost TWO HOURS to see the doctor! I taught it’s only in Malaysia the service are bad.. Melbourne are more WORST! My friend just 3 weeks give birth to twins need to see the doctor in the hospital for her baby check-up, end up waiting until FIVE HOURS! Is this crazy or what??#$@ Hhmm.. Back to Aliyah, when we got to see the doctor, the doctor straight away ask me to give another 6 puff of her ventolin, and 5ml of Prednisolone.Β  Usually I gave her 3ml of prednisolone if her asthma attack occurred. so it means her asthma are quite bad. 😦  Luckily it became better the next day..Β  The doctor also prescribed her with Singulair – once a day. This is from their website :

SINGULAIR is a prescription medicine used to prevent asthma attacks and for long-term treatment of asthma in adults and children 12 months and older.

SINGULAIR is a prescription medicine used to help relieve symptoms of indoor and outdoor allergies (outdoor allergies in adults and children as young as 2 years and indoor allergies in adults and children as young as 6 months).

Yesterday I started giving her one tablet.. One pack have 24 tablet in it.. and it cost us $58.00 !! What an expensive medicine.. huhuhu.. we’ll see if the medicine really works for her..

28 tablets for $58.00!!

I really need to check on her at school, it seems that when she started school last February, her asthma came very often.. She might have played too much and trying to adapt with the school environment..imagine they have 2 breaks, each break for 45 minutes, 15 minutes eating and another 30 minutes of outdoor activity..so basically they have 1 hour of playing!! Patutlaa budak-budak ni asyik nak ke sekolah je!

tgh kena asthma.. still peace! πŸ™‚

Alhamdulillah..Today, she’s more better and active as usual..still want to play at the park and running around. Keep asking when she can go to school.. Unfortunately, this Monday is public holiday for us here.. πŸ˜›Β  At least she can have a ‘rest’ at home.. πŸ˜›

Ok..till the next update.. Good day!

p/s: my prayer to all the victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan and other country affected..

Kids Progress..

Aliyah did her assesment test yesterday. For Prep student here, they have to undergo some test to see their ability in numerical, and words. She did pretty well despite she did not go to any of kinder last year. She’s only attend once a week playgroup session for 2 hrs yet she still can count, write nicely,able to identify letters draw and read by the pictures. And she’s not even 5 years old until this 18th March!Β Β  I’m just a SAHM here, while hubby’s allowance is just enough for basic need.Β  Thank God what a brilliant girl I have and I also did some teaching, watching the educational VCDs also could courage them to learn, ie. Sesame Street CD, Elmo’s world, and many more..

At the city center..Pose macam model!

 

Aisyah is totally different from Aliyah.. She’s more into sport person. While I waiting to see Aliyah’s teacher yesterday, I saw her playing lari-lari with bunch of boys! I called her and asked why don’t you play with her girl friends.. and she said the girls do not want to play that! She’s sooo active in school, running, likes tennis, play ball, jumping.. not sure if I should let her doing that more seriously..maybe become tennis player one day? hhmm..But she also has developed her reading skills and spelling as well.. she can read on her own and good in doing maths.. so well done Aisyah!

At the Myer during Christmas sale

 

Alima is going to be 3 tomorrow! I did not send her Kinder this year..too small and she still on her diaper. Here, if you want to send the kids, they should be diaper free..heehe..unlike Malaysia, we still let our kids on diaper to kinder, cikgu pun malas nak antar budak ke tandas.. kalau umur 3-4 tahun laa…kalau dah 5 tahun haruslahh dah tak pakai diaper.. πŸ˜›Β Β  So this year planning to get her on potty train.. once a day I did to her in the morning.. sheΒ  weewee then only she told me .. :>Β  I’m planning to teach her writing, need to buy the book for her, and she started to draw some pictures too! Can count 1-20, A-Z, still in the learning of identifying letters.. you go girl! πŸ™‚

Big baby Alima!

 

Arifa….. little girl who can becomeΒ  a big monster! eheheh.. her favourite is gigit orang! Habis kakak-kakak dia kena gigit including the mother! sakit ok dia gigitt.. tak ingat punya.. veryyyy cerdik nowadays.. she can know what we asked her to do, calling all her sisters name..the landlord punya anak kat belakang ni pun pandaii disebutnya! she 1 1/2 years old now.. but I see her more mature than her age.. can hold the pencil like older kids, trying to count like her sister 1-10.. and she still breastfeeding..hopefully can continue till she’s 2 years old.. Ifa and Ima always have a fight..like a big kids fight! pushing, tarik rambut, sampai menangis laa.. I guess they are jealous with each other..as they are only 1 years apart.. pantang sorang tengah manja dengan kita, mulalah sorang lagi datang mengacau.. 😦   Will try not to differentiate and be equal to them.

Smile always!

 

So, that’s about them.. πŸ™‚Β Β  Till next time!
