Yes, my son is a December baby. That means if he goes to school he will be one of those kecik lil kids who has yet to mature like other kids in his class. I initially planned to host a Dinosaur themed birthday party but of course it just didn’t happen because penat decides to join in the game. Lately it has been a bit exhausting at work hence this short break is very welcoming.
This year Hazeeq’s cake (Hamlet) is from Baker’s Cottage – not my favourite but better than Kings Confectionary. Italy Cake House still reigns the top of the chart for birthday cakes.
He’s already got 9 new toys to play with. I haven’t given him my present. It’s accumulative. It will be there when he is 13. Ha ha.
This young man will forever be my beloved firstborn. Gosh I adore his flat kemek nose and that little dimple on his right cheek – cute anomalies inherited from his maternal side of the family tree (moi). It’s amazing to see a little infant blob growing into a proper human at 4 years old – who can role play comic characters with you or crack a kiddie joke. And this is despite having a mother who feeds this blob with junk food most times. I vow to serve better food when he goes to kindy or setting foot in Primary One.
I hope he grows up to be a young man who is kind. Who is smart and witty but kind. Kind men attracts kind women (i hope) and good karma. I hope he learns the value of sacrifice and hardwork. That money may not mean everything but still worth something. That family always comes first – a concept that I’m still struggling to grasp and adhere to for I’m a borne workaholic.
I wish him all the happiness and luck in the world. I wish that no Evil shall lay its eyes or hands, not even a shadow on him and drag him into a world of misery. I wish that he may not have to experience war and hatred, far from being a victim of racism or Islamophobia. That he can continue to be an obedient Muslim without having a gun pointed to his head or his family being torn apart. I wish him the best of both worlds – Here and Thereafter. Insya-Allah..
