Seen and heard..
Mum: It was nice of Aunty and her grand-daughter to visit. Did you like playing with Maymuna?
Kid: Yes, it was fun. She had a nice shawl on, didn’t she?
Mum: Yes! It was lovely ma shaa Allah… hey, it was nice of you to share your blocks with Maymuna.
Kid: Well, she was our guest. Her doll was cute. She didn’t let me play with it.
Mum: She must have thought you would take it away from her. She eased up once we told her that you wouldn’t, right?
Mum: Anyway, sometimes you will find people who won’t share even after you’ve shared your stuff.
Kid: Yeah. You should still share though.
Kid: Cos you don’t do it so they’ll share. You do it so Allah will be pleased.
As Salaamu`alaikum wa Rahmatullaahi wa Baarakaatuh…
Mashaa Allaah! Such a sweet and well taught kid. *S*
wa `alaykum as salaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh Alia!
You know I really respect some of the ladies here – they are such gentle and patient mums ma shaa Allah. I really have so much to learn from them.
Oh yes, wow … I wonder if any kids here are like that. That’s such excellent thinking from a child. The parents must’ve done a great job at raising their kid.
*sigh* I so need to buck up!
Hi sis..how r u?
subhanALlah nice site, ws
Assalamualaikum dear sis! Heard you are back here in Singapore. I was talking to another friend and realised that she knows you too! Such a small world. :)
Assalammualaikum Iman, you r here in Singapore?…hope to meet you the princess one day…keep in touch
Asalaamu alaikum…wow mashaAllah. That really puts me to shame. BTW, how are settling in Singapore, sis? InshaAllah everything is well with the family. Get back to blogging!! :)
Shirin, I miss u at KC. A few new members have tried your Tandorri Chicken and posted replies saying Thank You. Read that you are home schooling your girls. Wise choice. I wish I could convince my parents with that. My neighbours’ 4 kids are all home schooled. Eldest is already 14 years old. Hope to see u at KC, if time permits. God Bless You!
I love your serene blog. Can you update me as you write, sometimes I lose of forget addresses. As a mother of two frisky toddlers and expecting I third, I am sure that you can relate.
