adjusting to housewife-dom


Not Imran, but me! Anyway, I have to say that so far I have been enjoying it. Basically my week consists of 2-hour yoga classes which I do religiously twice a week, one Tumbletots session with Imran, designing, drawing and managing the renovation work of our new house, grocery shopping, playing and swimming with Imran, taking him out for outings and putting him to sleep in the evenings. Life is good I must say.

Initially I wasn't sure if I was going to get bored of it, but I seriously think I won't! No doubt having a project of getting our new house ready keeps my brain working and injects a small dose of stress which is 'healthy' (does this makes sense?) and necessary. But I don't think I'm ready for work (yet, anyway) as I find myself rushing home after my yoga class just to feed the boy his lunch. As if the maid can't do this for him, I realise that I am somewhat obsessive with my baby, but I just can't help myself!

On his update, he has grown a lot in the last few weeks - physically, mentally and definitely verbally. He loves pretending to drive my car and when asked where he's going, he'll answer very casually 'shop'. He loves to pretend to cook too. So the typical conversation will go like this,

"Imran nak buat apa ni?"
" Mashak"
"Imran nak masak apa?"
"Bubur"
"Bubur apa?"
"Ayam"

So yes, you can pretty much have small conversations with him these days. And he definitely speaks more Malay too as I think it's much easier than English. He even says "Masheh" in stead of "Thank you", but it really doesn't matter whichever language first.

One thing for sure is that it's such a great joy watching him develop every day and I certainly don't want to be missing out!
