Ok. It's been a long time since I updated my blog. I have been so busy lately. There are so many things I wanted to write about but I don't know which one to start with.
Oh! It's summer holiday in Perth NOW! Alhamdulillah, it is good in a way that I don't have to race every morning like the V8 Supercar racers even though I never won anything. I just beat my own time once in a while.
On the other side, I have to entertain the kids at home who keep coming to me with bored faces. Especially our one and only Taz. She just asked me if she can sleep over at her aunt's and I said no. Then she went ballistic which I don't want to hear. Same old story. It's not fair this and that. Bla bla bla. I ended up playing marbles with her on my new king size bed. It was fun though. She was not happy to be a loser and tried to cheat. A good opportunity for me to teach her about being honest and cheating.
On Friday Muja and I went to her school for her Award Ceremony. Masha Allah her speech and language specialist, Yvette, awarded her the Communication Award for developing a clear method of indicating "Yes and No" through her PODD communication book. She also received two books which are called "This is my Book by Mick Inkpen" and "The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister" and a pink castle photo frame.
Muja did not go to school since she had her hips operation. So everyone at her school was excited to see her. Muja was happy too and she was proud of the award, when everyone came to congratulate her. They gave her a "get well soon" card which they made. I think Muja appreciated it and it was so thoughtful. Shona her teacher/conductor said her cast comes with a build in grasp bar which is good for her to practice grasping.
On Muja's last day of school before the surgery her teacher suggested a special party for her. As you all know Muja cannot speak so she is using a PODD communication book to communicate. Muja said it was a good idea and that she had a idea. She wanted to invite her family but not her baby sister. They told her that the baby can't be left at home alone, so she was ok for the baby to come but she said keep the baby in the corner. She is VERY jealous and has a good sense of humour, right?
One last thing, my very special daughter, Kay, received three trophies for top student in Maths, SOSE and Islamic Studies. My other special girl Nifah got a certificate of appreciate for excellent Qur'an memorization. Sadly, Taz didn't get anything. Though she usualy gets something during her schooling life. The most recent one she got was for excellent work habits and excellent progress in iqraa & behavior.
Masha Allah at the end of the day my children really made me proud of them, even if they were not recognized with anything I will still be proud of them. They are so special to me and I love them all very much, that includes you Mamat.
