What a day!

So much I have done, so much to do still... Princess has been poorly, and not been to school today, forcing me to stay home when I've got sooooo much to do! Ah, well...

It's Little D's birthday today, and although we had a little do at his Saturday School (read: mommy prepared some home-made snacks), he insisted he wanted a teddybear cake on his birthday. I obliged by baking it on Sunday night, even though I was already exhausted after a day's spring cleaning and a visit to a friend's.

After a surprise in the morning, a special dinner in the evening and a mini-show put up for the birthday boy, here I am reflecting on a few things I've been writing about recently: children, age and life in general.

No, I'm not going to do it here. Instead of having reruns of past entries, I'm just going to do it in my almost-snoozing mind. Yawn...

Here's my prayers for my children, especially my youngest son, Muhammad Aaryf Dean who turns 6 today:

O Lord, and make us submissive unto Thee and of our seed a nation submissive unto Thee, and show us our ways of worship, and relent toward us. Lo! Thou, only Thou, art the Relenting, the Merciful (Al-baqarah: 128).

My Lord! Make me to establish proper worship, and some of my posterity (also); our Lord! and accept the prayer. Our Lord! Forgive me and my parents and believers on the day when the account is cast (Ibrahim: 40 - 41).
I actually prefer the Arabic version but am too tired to search the net when the eyes are drooping.

The not-so-little one went to bed a very happy boy, only holding on to mommy's hand a little while before he's off to la-la land to dream of him playing on his new red scooter with his dad. Happy Birthday peanut!

thank you everyone for the wishes. Little D was happy when I read them all to him (and kept asking, who's Ms B, Kak Elle, Kak Teh (memory not so good la Kak Teh - he's met so many of mama's blog friends!), Helena, KC, myheartbleeds, nurazzah (with these 2, Princess tried to prompt his memory), cikdinz & Ruby).
