Conversations with the kids

Conversations with the kids.


Mia : Mama, bestnya kita camping. I loved it so much! The mountain climbing was fun but tiring la...

Helena : Good for you. But how come you sound different? Flu? Demam?

Mia : Flu la Mama.... and you know what? I sprained my ankle before the camp. Blue black Mama.

Helena : Huh? And you panjat gunung??? You must be joking?!?

Mia : Takla Mama. Because of the exercises and all, my ankle became much better.

Helena : Biar betul.. Ada ke macam tu. How's the ankle now?

Mia : It feels much better now.... Just a bit of swelling je....

Hmmm..... Bukannya boleh percaya Mia ni. Nasib baik her medication still ada. Mia is allergic to several painkillers so memang she has her own medication on standby.



Anastassia : Hi Ma.... Its me.

Helena : Hi Anastassia..... how are you?

Anastassia : I'm okay. Preparing to go to Surau.

Helena : You sound so tired. Are you sure you're ok?

Anastassia : Ok la Mama. Penat la but I'm okay.....

Helena : Are you sure? Risau la Mama dengar.....

Anastassia : I' m ok Mama. Dont worry about me ok? I'm fine.

Helena : Anastassia.... Janji dengan Mama..... Ahad ni, Isnin ni cuti..... Get as much sleep as possible okay.... Tidur banyak2......

Anastassia : Ok Mama...

Alahai...... Anastassia ni.... kalau tak cukup tidur, memangla she becomes weak.... i hope she gets that mcuh needed sleep.... (Hmmm kat rumah selalu Helena leter dia if asyik tidur aje.....)



Pu3 : Mama, must I go and collect Kakak Anastassia's UPSR award on her behalf tomorrow?

Helena : Yes Pu3. We have talked about this kan?

Pu3 : Ala Mama... Kita taknak la.... nanti orang pandang.....

Helena : Eh... buat macam biasa la.... macam awak naik stage selalu tu....

Pu3 : Taknak la Mama..... Mama..... kalau kakak Anastassia takde adik, sapa yang kena ambik kan?

Helena : Mama la kena ambik....

Pu3 : Ha! Mama la ambik.......

Helena : Mama taknakla naik stage.... Tahun ni Mama nak low profile....

Pu3 : Ala Mama..... Mama kan dah kurus..... Mama la naik stage....

Aiiii budak ni..... terkedu jugak nak jawab..... But in the end I managed to coax her to receive the UPSR award on Anastassia's behalf.

Helena : Ha! Kan boleh tu!

Pu3 : Mama! Kita dah dapat anugerah UPSR... Yeay! Kita tak payah abik UPSR nanti!!..... hehe...




It was getting late.... Zaryff was watching TV with me, I was like surfing the channel kat bahagian Info.

Zaryff : Eh Mama. Pergi balik kat channel 107.

Helena : Ada apa?

Zaryff : Ada satu cerita tu..... lama..... Cerita tu... kita nampak kan.... start pukul 1am sampai la 7am.....


I flipped to Ch107 and this is what I saw.

CH107 Transmission Ends 1:00 am - 7:00 am


Zaryff : Mesti cerita tu best kan Mama..... sebab cerita panjang2 selalu best.....

Hi Helena, I couldn't help smiling read your interesting conversation here.
While we try to teach our children all about life,
Our children teach us what life is all about.

What is a home without children? Quiet. Ha ha.

You keep a song in your heart and have a pleasant week, best regards, Lee.

seronok dengan anak anak ni..

Leney said...

hi there,
enjoy reading your entry :)

Mommy Lyna said...

Hi Mama Helena,

I'd like to invite you to join our Forum (just click on my name above). You are a 'senior' mama... most of us kat community tu still 'junior2' mama...

hopefully we can learn from each other ;)

TQ, see you there!

hi, hi, saya suka cerita zariff

Helena said...

Hi Uncle Lee..... my children are my world, and in a way, they did teach me a lot about the real life, especially when I was very much in a cocoon when I was growing up due to my protective parents.

Yup, home without all the children is like an empty shell. And in a way, I understood why some parents are not into boarding schools. Having said that, I'm very2 happy that they are in one, esp when it has been their dream to be in one since the day they start school. Even little Pu3 and little Zaryff understood that they need to get 5As in UPSR to get to good boarding schools like their sisters.

Life is treating me well lately... and I'm enjoying it to the fullest.

You take care U. Lee.

Helena said...

zino..... ni tengah tunggu 3pm ni, waiting for Zaryff to come back from Koko (Boy Scout) and Pu3 at 5:300pm from her taekwondo trainings.

Sebelum tu rumah sunyi aje.....

Helena said...

Hi Leney, thx for dropping by..... Glad to know that you liked it here.

Come again soon, ok?

Helena said...

Hi Mommy Lyna, hey thanks for dropping by and also for the invitation.

I dropped by yesterday but the server at my mom's was so slow, I'll come back later today or tomorrow.

Yup we can definitely learn from each other. Tak kisahla siapa senior siapa junior. We just want to be a good mommy yeah? hehe...

charms allure, thx for dropping buy..... hope to see you again here....

Helena said...

suria..... i was just doing a flashback masa anak 4 org kat rumah.... when Mia was in std 6..... wow.... those were the days. Cant really imagine how I could have survived....

Life is less hectic now for me. But Suria.... all the sacrifices and penat lelah are ALL worth it. So try to hold on okay..... and remember tat you are not a supermom... so its ok to ngelat once in a while.... hehe
