Sam and Hud

Reading the blogs, that is what I had been doing last couple of weeks, , I really appreciate the people who are blogging about all the recipes, tips,time optimization. So,I thought of blogging, myself, first it started with great interest ,but slowly the interest is dwindling away, because I am not a very good cook! Not very adventurous cooker,better cook what people have already cooked and liked,otherwise if it doesn't turn out good, all the hard work goes in drain! Anyways food na sahi, kuch gupshup hojaaye!!

Now that my husband is on a visit to another country for office work, me and my daughters Sam and Hud are here alone,I dont feel much like cooking for me alone .

Playing with kids thats what I will do, and cook easy peesy things like khichdi, stir fried vegetables, .or just order a couple of shawarmas for dinner, that is what is the main advantage of living in Dubai, I don't need to cook a lot!

Sam will be 3 years old next month, and Hud is 7 months old.

Sometimes it gets frustrating ,when my hands are full and I dont get to do what I want to, what can I possibly do when I am frustrated, take my vent out on my innocent babies, let me better explain to you by an example,.

For many days I wanted to make a dessert called tiramisu, it does not involve much work but a step by step procedure,but then whenever I try to make it either of my kids seek my attention,when I try to ignore ,they cry...I just give up my cooking and get back to the kids,lil bit frustrated coz I cannot do what I want to, and then scold my older daughter, then a guilty feeling creeps in...I shouldn't have scolded her, I am her mother, friend,teacher..everything ,she should be my priority,but in the frustration reasoning doesn't work!this comes only after I have scolded her!

But when the realization dawns on me, I draw her close, give her a nice tight hug, and you know what it cheers her up!

I am really lucky to have a baby like her, when I was expecting Hud,I was really afraid how Sam would take up, when the love and affection that only she was getting is now going to be shared ,but I must say she was only 2 yrs 4 mnths old, but really mature(samajhdar), she loved and kissed her baby sister so gently,and that too without anybody telling her, never did she hit her in these seven months.

Still I remember,the day Hud was born,my husband had left for office , me and Sam were at home as usual, my contractions had started from early morning, but I thought those were minor braxton hicks, but later it develoed to strong pain, I was calling my husband he was on his way home, I could not take the pain and I started crying, my lil darling came up to me and said

"mummy dukh raha hai?cream lagaaun? aap ro nahi, mei aapko mera teddy bear deti hun" then she was running to her toy basket and getting me all her toys to comfort me..........Oh that day I thought God has blessed me truely......

Then I got a gift on my 24th birthday..guess what? A Baby :)

Yes Hud was born on my birthday, she was so quite and non fussy baby unlike her sister,who used to cry a lot, but this silence was only for 3 months, now that she is 7 months old mashallah, she is in full form of mischief, trying to crawl all over the house,and while on her cruise on knees,picking up and eating watever she fancies on the floor, so now my main job is to keep all the teeny weeny stuff awat from her reach, things like pistachio shells, tiny coins... gotta be really careful, this is the most difficult phase, coz I gotta keep an eye all the time, 2 mins eyes off her she fell off the bed:(

Anyways just wanted to share the joy of being a mother.....There are ups and downs.... happiness and frustration.

But, their cute lil smile and their love, will make my joy win over the frustration.

It was nice to read this post, Syeda. I think the 3-year gap between children is a magical one.

It was touching the way your older daughter cared about you when you were having pains.
