Last Sunday, the 22nd of May, Aliyah turned 12. That means I have been a mother for 12 years already. Time really flies nowadays. Guilt still crept in from time to time when I can feel that I have been spending too much time thinking of work than thinking of the children. This may be the year everything changed for her. Next year, if she succeeded in persuading her father to let her pursue her schooling at a boarding school, then she will be spending most of her time away from us...huwaaaaa. But I am sure some good things will come out of her time away at any boarding school. She's trying very hard to get her Maths sorted out. Because that's the only subject that's a bit problematic for her. Most time when she can't relates them, so she took too much time thinking about the questions and time runs out on her. Whatever it is, come November, we shall know. Whatever the outcome, I am happy with her, will continue to pray for her to be the best that she can be, In Sya Allah.
By the way, next year on, Aliyah will celebrate her birthday with her latest cousin - Adamzarif, my youngest brother and sister in law's newborn. He was born around noon on the 22nd of May in Putrajaya. Aliyah tersenyum simpul jer dengar ada orang sama birthday dgn dia :-)
