He's Growing Up

Dear Diary,

A conversation between Imran and me one day after sahur:

“Mama, nape Mama tak bagi Abang turun pegi sekolah sendiri?”

“Mama nak teman Abang.”

“Tapi Abang dah tak takut pegi sorang.”

So starting Friday, I let him go down to wait for his school bus by himself. Don’t worry, it’s not far. The pick up point is near our apartment’s playground and swimming pool. A decision I reached with a very heavy heart. He’s growing up so fast and I’m having a hard time letting go. I cherish the few minutes I share with him every morning waiting for the bus because that’s the only time of the day that I can focus my attention solely on him. For me that's spending quality time with him.

On another note, Imran is fasting full day this year. Last year, I trained him fasting for half day (click for the entry here). Although there were a few “accidents”, he’s doing a great job performing the third Rukun Islam. I’ve been too harsh on him actually considering this is his first time fasting full day and he doesn’t yet understand the real concept of fasting.

Abang, Mama is so proud of you. Mama knows I’m very hard on you at times but believe me I just want the best for you. No matter what happened I love you very much.
