Pinjam tangan boleh?

Wah wah wah sungguh sibuknya.Nak bernafas pun tak kecukupan lubang hidung. Penangan cuti tidak ke lab sepanjang minggu lepas makanya segala kerja tertangguh perlu lah diselesaikan minggu ini juga.

Rancangnya hanya bercuti Jumaat, sebab nak kena pergi Pejabat Pendaftaran Negara Simpang Rengam. MyKid si Na`im dah lama siap tapi tak terambil. Isnin dan Selasa cuti Tahun Baru Cina. Sambung lagi ke Rabu dan Khamis untuk selesaikan urusan tertangguh di Kelang.

Tidur semalam di kampung dan bertolak ke Kelang paginya lalu jalan bawah. Kononnya sesudah subuh bertolak, tapi terpaksa mengikut piawaian orang telah beranak makanya pukul 11.00 pagi baru gerak. Singgah rumah Mid di Muar untuk makan tengahari sambil-sambil melawat rumah barunya. Terima kasih Mid atas layanan yang diberikan. Sungguh lazat asam pedas ikan pari tu! Dan sungguh berbaloi Mid rumah tu.

Terasa tua

Satu petang yang agak lewat di sebuah pasaraya bernama Target.

“Muka akak ni macam familiar lah”.”Hah?”. “Macam muka pengacara Bersamamu”.”Ehehe, pengacara Bersamamu?”.”Ha ah, Fifi pengacara Bersamamu!”. “Fifi?”.”Ha ah, Noor Hafiza Saharudin. Tahi lalat tu yang nampak macam serupa”.

Aku agak terkejut juga sebab aku kenal Fifi dan aku tahu rancangan Bersamamu itu. Tapi aku tak tahu pun nama penuh Fifi ialah Noor Hafiza Saharudin dan aku tak juga perasan yang tahi lalat aku macam tahi lalat Fifi.

“Ehehe”. Aku masih tersengeh macam kerang busuk. “Perasan lah tu!”. Erk! laaa tapi puji aku bagai ni kutuk pulak?

“Bukan perasan dik, cuma tengah fikir adakah perlu akak bagi cadangan agar adik bercermin mata…”. Kata aku dengan lantangnya… dari dalam hati ehe.

Dalam usia yang telah mencecah 3 dekad + 1, cara adik tersebut mengatakan “Perasan lah tu” kepada aku adalah agak kurang menyenangkan. Adakah aku terlalu tua untuk diguraukan seperti itu?… ya kot!.  

I saw the sign

Emel daripada seorang kawan. Baru lah aku tahu maksud sebenar disebalik perangai si kecil ni…

Signs that your child loves you…

  1. Your newborn stares into your eyes – he’s actually working hard to
    memorize your face. He doesn’t understand anything else about the world,
    but he knows you’re important.
  2. Your baby thinks about you even when you’re not around. Between 8 and
    12 months old, he’ll start to scrunch his face and look around when you
    leave the room – and he’ll smile when you return.
  3. Your toddler throws wicked tantrums. Nope, those screaming fits don’t
    mean he’s stopped loving you. He wouldn’t be so hurt and angry if he
    didn’t trust you so deeply.
  4. Your toddler runs to you for comfort when he falls down or feels sad.
    Kids this age may not truly understand the meaning of “I love you,” but
    their actions speak louder than words.
  5. Your preschooler gives you a flower picked from the garden, a
    finger-painted heart, a sparkly rock, or another gift.
  6. Your preschooler wants your approval. He’ll start to be more
    cooperative around the house, and he’ll look for chances to impress.
    “Look at me!” will become a catchphrase.
  7. Your grade-schooler trusts you with secrets, like his first crush or
    his most embarrassing moment. You’re his confidante, even if he shies
    away from your hugs in public.

See?

Bermula bulan ini, dan bulan-bulan yang akan menyusul kemudiaannya sehinggalah waktu yang belum dapat ditentukan lagi maka dimaklumkan bahawa tiada wang yang akan mengalir masuk ke dalam poket aku.

Sesiapa yang ada maklumat kerja kosong, jutaan terima kasih didahulukan atas kesudian memaklumkannya… ehe.

“Macamana nak balik Kelang ya?”

Week 40 Baby Tip

Car Seat Safety

Even though your baby may weigh over 20 pounds, don’t be tempted to turn her car seat around to face forward. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that babies remain in rear-facing car seats until they weigh at least 20 pounds and are at least one year of age. If your child is in a front-facing car seat during an accident, she is at risk for cervical spine injury.

BabyWeekly™ Tips

Week 40

When my son was a baby, walkers were thought to be a great way to help infants learn to walk. Since then, we have learned that walkers are actually detrimental to normal development. Because a baby in a walker can get around easily, their urge to move across the floor is satisfied, so many aren’t motivated to learn how to crawl or walk on their own. Walkers also strengthen the wrong muscles: the lower legs are used almost exclusively, while the upper legs and hips – used most when walking – remain relatively weak.

In addition, children in walkers have more accidents. Approximately 25,000 children are treated in hospital emergency rooms in the United States each year for skull fractures, concussions and other injuries related to baby walkers. Most baby walker accidents (about 96 percent) involve children falling down stairs. In 69 percent of the cases, an adult was with the child at the time of the accident.

In response to these accidents, the Consumer Product Safety Commission and baby walker manufacturers have developed new safety standards. In order to meet the new standards and be certified by the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association, a walker must be too wide to fit through a standard doorway and have a gripping mechanism to stop the walker if one wheel goes over a step. Instead of a traditional baby walker, try a modified version that has no wheels. These allow the baby to swivel, but are stationary.

Your New Baby

Your baby loves to imitate you at this stage and might mirror your movements as you brush your hair or teeth. Toys that represent adult objects, such as a play telephone or tool set, will be among his or her favorites right now. Mimicking is an important way for your baby to learn.

Your baby is getting close to taking his or her first steps and may lift one foot off the ground to take a practice step while standing with assistance. If he or she has mastered crawling and standing against furniture, he or she is probably very close to cruising, or walking while holding onto furniture. If you have several pieces of furniture close together he or she will love to walk around them all, as long as he or she doesn’t have to completely let go at any point.

Your baby’s stomach and back muscles are increasing in strength, and his or her balance is improving. He or she can go from lying on his or her stomach to a sitting position all by themselves, and he or she can also recover his or her balance well while sitting. When crawling, he or she can now balance on one hand while reaching for an object with the other.

A Quote Worth Repeating

“We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.”
~ Dr. Jess Lair

A Tip from the Trenches

What do you do to create a soothing environment in your baby’s nursery to help him or her calm themselves to sleep? One subscriber put a small aquarium in her baby’s room. The hum of the pump and the gurgle of the bubbles from the filter made just enough white noise to soothe baby to sleep. The light from the small fluorescent bulb provided just enough light, and there was always a good level of humidity. The goldfish also provided a source of entertainment for her when she was awake in her crib. If you decide to add an aquarium to your baby’s room, be sure the tank is out of your baby’s reach and is secure so he or she can’t fall in or pull it down on top of themselves.
