I believe, being a mother is the best position for a mother, perhaps. Hahaha!
I remember five (or kalau masuk tahun ini, six) years ago, back when I’ve started my business, I’ve started my own blog. And that time, I’ve used Blogger / blogpost as my blog host. I’ve named my blog, “Prince Syahir”, because I want to write his journey into this world. Syahir was still a baby at that time.
Now, he’s already in Standard 1. How time flies so fast.
I still remember, the moment when he got to choose his first pair of school shoes. Of course, he had to choose Upin Ipin school shoes…T____T Nasib baik ketika itu tiada kasut robot. Kalau ada, mesti Syahir akan pilih kasut robot…T___T
We’ve decided untuk make sure Syahir berkhatan sebelum masuk sekolah rendah. So, Ayah brought him back to Kedah, and Syahir selesaikan proses berkhatan di sana.
Muka kelat after proses berkhatan. Alhamdulillah, walaupun Syahir ada bagitahu Mama, the experience was very painful to him, but, I am so proud of him that he went through that very well. He cried a little, but that’s just it.
I’ve remembered crying in my car after sending him off to Little Caliph Pre-School, on his last day there. Sebab maybe rasa sebak. Sebak sebab after this dia akan masuk sekolah rendah. No more teachers yang akan bantu dia one-on-one. He would be independent.
But, I always believe in him. He’s a strong boy, and never afraid to the outside world.
Syahir. You have been a good boy, so far, and I believe you would always be a good boy. My prayer to you, always be a good boy to us, and to society. Be kind and be humble.
His first experience attending a primary school. Ya Allah, handsome nya anak Mama. Terus rasa hendak menangis sekejap, sebab he’s really a big boy now. Mama masih kurang percaya yang Syahir sudah masuk sekolah rendah. I hope you will experience good things in school.
Of course, my first job as a mother in the year of 2016, is to write down his name on over 30 books. I was so amazed that I can still maintain my handwriting. Some of my Facebook friend did tell me to tempah chop, supaya senang, after this boleh terus chop sahaja nama Syahir atas buku latihan.
Maybe, apabila Inas sudah masuk sekolah nanti. But, for the time being, I really want to enjoy this moment, for being able to write his name, balut buku sekolah dia and all.
Ah, the best feeling when you are a mother.
