Growing Up Too Fast

It was only yesterday that I uploaded a photo of Yasmin & I in facebook. We seldom have a picture together. Her sisters who are not a camera shy like her would normally manipulate each situation :-)

The picture. A few commented on her height. Will beat me in no time ;-)

We went jogging yesterday. Being alone next to her I realised that she has turned to this pretty girl. No longer that chubby baby who once won a prize in a Baby Contest.

Yasmin is far different compared to Wardah & Balqis. She won't make a fuss if her shoes colour does match her attire. In fact, there were a few incidents when we went out in a proper attire but what she had on her feet was a pair of horrible looking old slippers!

Last night when she was getting ready for bed, Wardah was shouting out for me. My Yasmin has gotten her first menses. I knew it was coming based from the changes of her body. But at 10? She grows up rather too fast... I still have not gotten enough of her. My first baby!

I got mine when I turned 11 & how funny it was using the sanitary pads then. Hey! I'm not that old. Did not use the loops version! Only that the sizes were all the same. During heavy days had them on double & the walk was not a pretty sight. Hahaha!

Yasmin dear, we have discussed the birds & the bees. The book I bought is merely for reference. Anything else you wish to know I am here with all ears. Please do take your solat seriously now .Love you girl (((((hugs))))

I think nowadays it's quite normal at 10 yro.

Boys will mature later at 13 or 14 where their voice will break & grow facial hair. At least with boys dont hv to worry abt menses! My Abhijay is also quite tall at 12 yro.

Ja,

Hasya got hers just before Puasa hari tu - at the age of 10 (+5 months) :)

I think it's quite normal nowadays for girls to get it this early.

Yes, they have to jaga solat betul-betul now. Tak boleh lagi lompang sana-sini. And we as mothers must make sure to that, insya Allah.

Welcome to adulthood, Yasmin. You didnt mention how HB's feelings were? My husband, he yang seronok when the dugthers and son reached puberty.

Omigod Ja, mmg normal ye skrg at the age of 10, I rasa mcm not ready je kalau my eldest reaches her puberty in a year to come.

Alamak, how do you prepare yourself ye? I got mine at the age of 13, so I was mentally prepared coz all my friends had been telling me their experiences. By at the age of 10? alamak. gabra dah i, thinking about it. ahak ahak.

just can't imagine if i were alone at home when she gets it... sure huru hara punye...!!! hehehe... congrats yasmin...!!!!

You two look like sister lah! Seriously!

10 y.o dah dapat period? Well, maybe it's normal nowadays but i think that's just too young. Maybe it's becoz of the food they take these days. I think my girls pun had theirs when they were very young but tak ingat berapa tahun umur diaorang..

Hi Kak Shana,

Waaa... Hasya too? 10 is the age lah nowadays kut. As for Yasmin, I knew it was coming. Tgk her anatomy changes pun dah boleh agak.

She is more serious w solat now, alhamdulillah... Tak payah dah her mama terjerit, terlolong. Hehehe...

jabishah said...

Dikny,

Correction... U kecik, I tak. Hahaha! Dah besar dah Yasmin. Do I feel old? Not at all...! Sometimes in public her mama can be the silly one & dear Yasmin wld say, "Mama, malulah org tgk". Ooops!Too much of her dad's gene. Kekeke!

jabishah said...

Hi kak yatt,

Yes, I forgot that part. He was away & did sound rather too excited. Siap suruh inform both grandmas. Hahaha!

Hi Puteq,

Try to get the book I recommended. Senang skt bila explain nanti. Hv u started w the birds & the bees yet? If not pls do. I dr dulu hv told them to trust me of anything. So, I hope they refer to me later bila dah teenage rather than peers yg mmg will give wrong info.

Yasmin understands even before she got her menses. Recently I asked her again & she elaborated with ease. As I put it, it is a piece of knwledge. Facts of life...

She at first was kinda bengang I put it up in my blog on this post. But I explained that it is a fact of life. A journal of my children. She bought it :-)

jabishah said...

Apa yg huru-hara nya B..? Bkn ke as always you will call your private emergency line? My number... Hehehe!

jabishah said...

jabishah said...
