Gonna be a temporary sahm

In almost a month time, I will be taking a 2wks no-pay leave to look after Aisyah...alone. Yes, alone! And I'm very excited. My parents will be going on an umrah trip for a week and they will need another week to rest after the trip hence the 2wks leave. I will cook, do the laundry, clean the house, play with Aisyah, feed her....by myself. It certainly doesn't sound exciting to most people out there but it's probably my one chance of a lifetime to be a stay-at-home mum and doing all the housework myself. Before I was married, I had always been under the wings of my emak and now that I'm married, I have my in-laws to help with the housework. Not that I'm complaining but at some point, I just have this desire to manage a home myself. I'm sure that sahms dun perfect their 'home management skills' overnight and this is also a chance for me to practise my cooking and put my time management skills to a test. It's going to be tough because I usually have the kanda to help me out feed and play with Aisyah and my mum-in-law to cook and do the other housework. And the kanda won't be there too since I'll be staying in Pasir Ris with my adek while the kanda will be at Bishan. But I'll persevere...insyaAllah. May God bless me.

Wow! Two weeks is a long time (in my view) to be a temp SAHM.

I totally exhausted myself taking care of Ajab for just two days. Very gung-ho that time, wanted to experience being a SAHD. Hah! Not that I regret it, it was kind of fun actually, but I'd rather leave the daytime babysitting to the experts, a.k.a my in-laws. :D

I'm sure Aisyah will enjoy your company very much!

i don my SAHM hat every sunday & monday, my 2 "off" days a week. i think those 2 days of the week are more tiring & trying than the other 5 put together LOL! you gotta plan the housework, cooking, time to yourself around the baby's nap time. sometimes a clean house has to take a backseat to quality time you should spend with the baby. trying as it is, if the finances allow, i would give my job up in a flash! have fun ibu aisyah!

Sometimes it fascinates me how most mom in the 60s, 70s era manage to juggle several child at one time and watch them grow up.

Hope you have a good and fruitful time during those 2 weeks and can try and get tips from this http://dooce.com SAHM too :-)
