Two reasons why I AM very important…

…to some people at least.

7.15 a.m. and I am rushing out of home

Nilah (3) runs to the door. “Amma you didn’t give me a kiss”

Was awarded a million-watt smile when I obliged.

1.30 p.m. at work

Oviya (10) calls. “Amma when are you taking a break and coming home?”

Me: What for? You need something?

Oviya: Yes, I need to give you a hug.

What demanding kids I have! Tough being a parent.

About these ads

Umm Oviya + Nilah = Mother of Oviya + Nilah. Because in the Arab world a woman is first addressed as bint X (daughter of X) and then once she has a son (Y) she is Umm Y. I am not sexist, so don't mind surrendering my identity to my daughters.

    awww! Loved the “get back here so I can give you a hug bit”! I hug and kiss my boys and they squirm and giggle but rarely do I get them to be like that with me. :) daughters get more expressive as they grow older and sons don’t I guess :(

    i always buy baby shoes that are made up of natural cotton and leather because they are comfortable for the baby. ‘

    Before babies starts walking, they don’t need shoes. In fact, supportive shoes like hard-soled Mary Janes may actually get in the way of your child’s developing mobility. Socks, booties, and soft-soled baby shoes are useful for warmth, but bare feet are fine, too…
