Envy Me?

By now I'm getting used with this new supermom role. Pure supermom without a helper... But seriously, how can those true supermoms do it? I'm only hanging on until October the 6th. The day my helper is supposed to come back!

OK, I survived another morning on a school day alone with the girls. Not that chaotic really. The only thing was Nadeen & her early morning project... That girl will definitely poo right after she gets up. I prefer not to wake her up until I'm done with her sisters. She & her jolly mood in the morning is normally distracted by this sensational look of relief. Hahaha! Me an expert now managed to clean up in record time this morning. All reached school on time.

Another update of my helper's daughter. She called again informing me that the kanker has attacked the heart. That is difficult to swallow. She is not yet 30 with a 4-year-old son. Praying for her recovery.

HB is away again & should be back tomorrow night. Things were so much easier when he was around. I normally send off Yasmin to school & let him continue his sleep. The other day, when I got home from Yasmin's school & was about to get the other girls ready, I found Wardah & Balqis both showered. Nadeen? In the bathroom. Apparently, she did her business again & that time stained her jumpsuit. Hahaha! HB made a beautiful picture bathing his youngest in the babytub.

I ferried the other 2 girls with happy Nadeen tagging. Suggested him to continue his sleep since he got home quite late the night before. Did he? Once home, I found Blanco whiter & fresh. Someone groomed him! Went upstairs to get Nadeen's bip & discovered all beds were made. After her breakfast, as I was about to put Nadeen's to sleep, I heard the vacuum cleaner roaring. Later in the afternoon as I was almost done with cooking for breaking fast, somebody grabbed a broom & got busy in the kitchen. Late night, I felt a presence of someone at the porch. The same person was chalking the girls' school shoes. During Sahur, right after I was done eating, Nadeen woke up. Rushed upstairs to nurse her & later I found the dining table cleared.

That's my Cancerian HB. Envy me? ;-)

Lucky you!!

My hubby is the type who leaves all the chores to the women folks. If he starts holding the broom or mop or the vacuum cleaner, I'll be really worried! Buang tebiat ke aper?!! Hahaha!

And if he ever does what your HB did, I probably would get myself a lottery ticket ;)

But he makes up for all that in some other wonderful ways, of course ;)

Ja,

Well, what can I say.....our hubbies share the same zodiac....domestic indeed...I'm truly grateful as you know, I have a hectic fulltime job, 3 cheeky heroes and without a maid...(why must I keep on repeating these? hihihi)

As for you, I know it's tiring and all but just hang in there, you'll be glad later, how shall I say this,hmmm...it's like a long-term effect...you won't see it now but it'll soon show....

Good for you that he's helping without you asking.
Last year when my Dedeh went back for Raya in Oct, DH wld wash dishes & clear the table b4 rushing back to clinic. By the 3rd week, he started getting fed up & the washing dishes became less. Thank God, Dedeh retuned by the following week. Hope this doesnt happen to you.

Ja!

This time dua dua tangan angkat tabik springggg!! One for you one for your HB!

Hehehe..kalau HB i buat camtu Ja, I sedekah pisang kat surau!

Nobody's perfect...like wanshana said "he makes up for all that in some other wonderful ways..". Tapi kekadang tu, ada gak la grind grind gigi sebab gerammmm...biasa la tu..

jabishah said...

Kak Syana,

A Cancerian man is family oriented & rather domestic too. Hahaha! Sometimes susah jgk nak cope with his kerajinan tu. Wifey nya pemalas sikit... ;-)

jabishah said...

Dikny,

Lupa ke..? Not only that they share the same zodiac but also the same birth date! I think, I once told the elder girls, klu nak kahwin nanti cari a Cancerian... hahaha!

But really dikny, I have to salute you for managing your boys without a helper. And you a career woman lagi...

jabishah said...

Kak Ezza,

Ye ke dah dkt? Mcm pernah dgr atau terbaca signage Pendamaran ni... Tak expert sgt Klang ni. Klu ja dtg, nak mkn Kak Ezza punya specialty. Apa ye... hmmmm nanti nak pi tgk dapur akak dulu ;-)

Tapi Nadeen tu susah nak kat org...

jabishah said...

Hi a&a's mom,

HB is seldom home. Most of the time when he is, he tries his best to help around. He has the time to himself whenever he's away.. ;-)

jabishah said...

Hahaha! Waterlily, kadang2 pening jgk bila org rajin sgt ni. Home Minister klu dah ada 2 kepala.. sakit wooo ;-)

That is when am bersyukur he doesn't work 9-5... hehehe.

Good for you, Ja!

And to Mr Pilot, keep it up. Men like you are rare species these days!

U.Lee said...

Hello Supermom, ha ha....I know you enjoy doing all that, ha ha....its your love for family.
But hey....you ada tiga assistants tu? Pay then lima ringgit to help? Ha ha. Lee.

Jabishah,
your hubby is a good man. Don't ever let him go. My hubby helps a little at home. Since we both working, he help with some of the house work like doing laundry, dishes if I cook at home. He wants to make sure I can take care of Josh sebab my HB tak tau nak jaga baby.
I kat Florida cuma dapat hujan dan angin aje during hurricane Ike..... no damaged done. No worry, kita kat sini sihat alhamdulillah. Thanks!

Dear Mr.Roberto Torres,

Cubalah buat donno je... nanti I sempat goreng telur je for buka ;-)

You are most welcome. I must make sure the hse is in order when Sri comes home. Refuse to admit her importance in our family.. hehehehe!

Miss you!

jabishah said...

Mrs.N,

Indeed rare species ;-) Im just plain lucky...

jabishah said...

Hi uncle,

You know since you mentioned it yes, my girls have been a great help. In fact now, they make their own bed & even bathe Balqis for me. They are also in charged of the garden. Not even once I water the plants. All done by the girls. Of course they enjoy the water fight too.. ;-)

But rm5 is rather too much la for every daily chore. 50sen can lah. Hahaha!

jabishah said...

Hi yatie,

Good to hear things are OK in Florida. Hugs to Josh. He's turning 1 very soon right?

jabishah said...

Hi Lilie,

U.Lee said...

Hi Jabishah, just dropped by say hello and wish you happy ramadan.
Big hug to Nadeen, Lee.

Hi Ja,
I guess most husbands will try to help whenever they're really needed in that department. My hubby, kalau ada maid, will never do the 'engineering' work at home. But during our difficult times, several times - eg when our maids ran with our belongings - he did all the house chores for weeks. In fact kalau buat kerja tu lagi 'detail' dari us moms..hehe...

I NOW CERTIFIED YOU AS A SUPERMOM..hehe...

Take care Ja... mesti banyak buat biskut raya ni, betul tak?
