once upon a norza

i am norza and this is my blog


mamam timeAs Aisyah grows up, we noticed that she has a streak of obstinance running right through her (thanx to me 8P). I know I have a lot of work ahead of me although she's still a bit small to understand now. When she has something in her hand, nobody can ever take it from her without being screamed at.

Just a few weeks back, she refused to finish her meals for 2 days straight. And she usually finished them although she knows I'm a bad cook. hahah. She pushed the spoon away and refused to open her mouth. I gave up the food war and figured out maybe she's just too full. While washing her bowl, I swallowed a lump in my throat and felt the tears coming. Instead I didn't cry but put on a very serious front which made everyone misunderstand my actions. Here I am, as a first-time mother, trying too hard to feed her child and rejection is all I get. Of course, like many mothers who rushed to prepare food for their babies, I felt frustrated. But I realised that my frustration (although a bit late by then) didn't get me anywhere. Aisyah, on the other hand, acted as if nothing happened and she babbled, laughed, munched and crawled like any normal babies would. Everything was back to normal again...that cheeky lil girl of ours. It's been almost a year and we love her to bits. Ibu should really attend one of those anger management sessions. 8B

It's a phase. One day they're refusing to eat, the next they won't stop! :D

Just remember. Babies are not evil. They're not out to frustrate us. We frustrate ourselves with our expectations (sometimes too high) of them.

salaam ibu aisyah ... thank you for visiting my often longwinded and weary journal. :)

masyaa allaah ... this post of yours brought back bittersweet memories of infanthood with all my 3 kids.

in my humble opinion, 1st borns are inevitably a usual case of trial and errors. no one says motherhood somes easily or automatically. we grow as the as the child does. we learn together.

patience and perseverence, 2 key ingredients vital for the successful preservation of our sanity. it'll gets easier insyaa allaah.

Safiyyah does that too..after a few spoonfuls, she will just refuse to finish her food..What i did was, stop for a while and try to feed her again in 5-10mins time. Most of the time, she will continue eating.

And she is small too for her age but as long as she is healthy, im fine with it.
