The Mother and His 10 Year Old

What does a day in the life of an average 10-year-old look like? Wakes up at 6 am and get ready to school. Spent 6 hours in morning school, rest at daycare while waiting for afternoon school session. Spent another 3 hours. Reached home around 6.30pm, watched fave TV shows, have dinner, complete homework and sleep at 9pm.

Well that is how my 10 year old boy routine on week days. Today, we have one of those morning where he decided to "LET'S GIVE EACH OTHER AN ATTITUDE" kind of start.

Everything is not right on my 10 year old eyes. He was grumpy, gave me the face, talks back at me, stumped his feet.. you name it. I had to deal with that for 30 mins. I have to keep on reminding myself, don't lose your cool and he's just testing my patience. I do not want to yell at him which I know it doesn't help. And I know I have to deal with my children's attitude for the rest of my life. I need and should read A LOT of parenting tips.

Another thing, what was his friends thinking when they asked him to open a Facebook account? My son is so influenced by his friends and I feel like punching them on the face.. HARD. He claimed that almost all his friends has Facebook account and their parents allowed them to have. So be it. Let them have it. I was furious of course. I told him, he won't be getting any social media account until he is 18 years old. The end.

Yeah, I get the LOOK and face. Not only from my elder son.. my elder daughter and soon my baby girl too. Parenthood has never been joyful ey.

P/S: I bought him Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Will I get.. "Mama, today is my lucky day."?

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…
