7 Year Old Reaction To Pregnancy

Knowing kiddo who is very talkative, we decided to keep it as a secret first. And knowing he is too smart, the secret doesn't last long. He knew it when we walked near the baby milk powder shelves. He saw Mr. Fruitheart took the Anmum Materna box which has pregnant women in front of the cover. At that instant, he started all his questions.

Kiddo: Eh daddy, beli susu untuk bagi adik Syamie dalam perut mama ke?
Daddy: Iye.
Kiddo: Mama, Syamie dah ade adik dah ke mama?
Mama: Iye
Kiddo: Nanti mama minum susu, adik dalam perut besar ke mama?
Mama: Iye

He asked so many questions from that moment along the way to his grandparents house. Non-stop. He even told me to take good care of his little bro or sister when he goes to school.

Kiddo: Mama, nanti mama kene makan tau. Sebab kalau mama tak makan, baby dalam perut mama pun kene makan juga. Baby kat dalam perut tak boleh makan sendiri. Nanti bile mama dah makan, baby pun makan jugak.

Kiddo: Mama, Syamie dah minta doa adik sihat dalam perut mama dah.
Mama: Thank you Syamie.

It really touched my heart how my seven year old say his prayer to keep his baby brother or sister healthy. Because, he remembered very well that his mother's previous miscarriage. I told him that the baby is not doing well and the doctor had to took it out.

Yesterday, we had our groceries day. He was the one who really excited and told us to buy baby's stuff. OMG! I was right when I told myself.. the most happiest person would be kiddo and Mr. Fruitheart. Both of them had waited too long. And I am so thankful to Allah, that I have caring and helpful husband and a talkative, loving kiddo. I am sure, when the little baby come out.. he or she.. or might be both happy to have them too!

ASTRO: Just Because of RM10.45

On last Thursday, we had an issue with our ASTRO. We reached home and as usual, kiddo switched on the TV and click on her fave channel. However, there was a message:

We apologise for the service interruption. To resume service please SMS: Astro RCO XXXXX(Smartcard number) and send to 66688. For customers in Brunei, please call 151. (TCI)

So I sent an SMS, and got a reply:
RM0.00 You are currently not eligible for this transaction. Please make payment immediately to enjoy full ASTRO services again. Thank you.

Our ASTRO has been barred?? Mr. Fruitheart checked our history payment and confirmed we had paid. So, I had to call ASTRO. I called the toll free line and since I'm using the ASTRO IPTV, I was being transferred to another line.

I asked the customer service representative to check and she told me our ASTRO account has an outstanding payment. I was like WHAT? Outstanding payment? How much? Oh no! Did Mr. Fruitheart paid to the wrong account? Because I had 2 under my name.


Confinement Packages / Pakej Berpantang

During my last pregnancy, I hired a confinement lady (CL) from Jemari tradisional to take care of me after I delivered my baby girl. This time around I have not decided yet where I will be staying during my confinement days and not sure if I will get the same CL from JT.

So, I have started to search for confinement lady / confinement packages / post natal packages / post natal care/ penjaga pantang / pakej pantang / pakej urut bersalin on the Internet. I found few that looks OK but some of the websites were not updated. I do not know if they're still on business.

So here are the lists:

Dilemma: Taska / Nursery for The Girls

We're back to square one. Scratching our head, thinking hard and have to make an important decision. My sister can no longer take care of my girls, she has accepted a job offer in KLIA2.

Definitely not going to hire another helper. I do not want face another headache, frustration and have stranger into our house. It would also cost us thousands of Ringgit again which we don't have. Now we're considering sending the girls to a childcare centre. Choosing a childcare centre is NOT easy. Reliable and registered are normally full.

I had done my research on the Internet, browsing the JKM website looking for registered taska / nursery. I called few places and they are no longer accepting new entry.

I had called this centre named Taska Umi Setia Kasih in Danau Kota. I prefer this taska since it is close to kiddo's transit house and school. It is also close to my in law's house. And it is just opposite the police station. Aha. There is a place for Arissa, but I have to wait fo…
