No, it's not. If you ask me how do I do it? Working, cupcake, baking and family. And Faaeq. Imran is a breeze, Faaeq is a storm! ..or tsunami I would say. Maybe not as bad as tsunami, but he is tough to handle, I tell u! With Imran we got to travel everywhere without thinking if the hotel suitable for him, without fearing of tantrums and chasing him everywhere. Without even having second thoughts of whether or not to travel! We could rent a room in Sydney , in Kak Nany's house (she is the warden at Malaysian Hall Sydney, kindly offered us a room in her house for us to rent out. My husband was there to take his licence in aircraft maintenance.. long story short, we spend 9 solid months there in Sydney, travelling all around Australia with Imran. He was 1 year plus at that time.. ).. I couldn't imagine it if it was Faaeq back then. With all the crystals and lovely flower vases everywhere in the house....
At 2, he is showing many autism traits.. tantrums, delayed speech and other skills he is supposed to know by now.. tantrums again... being in his own world.. tantrums... hyperactivity... almost no eye contact... very mininum interactions with Imran and others.. he is fine with me.. but I do noticed that he avoided eye contact everytime I want to teach him something.. We seeked the answer to our questions... we asked why why why and why.. and autism falls as the correct answer. So did our hearts.
Man, this boy is tough to handle.
but his smile is so sweet it melted my heart everytime I see him smiling. at me! his eye contact has improved now coz I know how to get his attention. How? I have to sing! This is when I sang "five little monkeys jumping on the bed"
.. and this is when I sang 'twinkle twinkle little star'.. see the twinkle in his eyes?
that's my mom, and us all during hot air balloon festival @ Putrajaya. Last year, Faaeq cried like there's no tomorrow when he saw those balloons.. this year, he didn't shed a tear! he liked them, I think. Well, nobody knows what he thinks..
Faaeq, ibu hopes u get better each day. please slow down on your tantrums, pls hug and kiss ibu more. pls look at me when u want something. pls respond when i call your name. pls ... almost all... call me "ibu" soon!
I love the smell of your hair,
