I love #parenting . For the ones who knows me best, know that parenting is something that is very natural to me and that being a mother is one thing that I’ve always wanted to become because I really like the idea of nurturing, teaching, mentoring and of course, unconditional love and support for another being. Yes, I’m kind of obsessed with love :) And one of my most favourite things to have with my children as a mother is having a conversation with them.
This #conversation with #Anzalna the other day occurred when she was helping me in the kitchen making homemade nuggets.
Me: Kak, kamu pengen liburan ke mana?
Her: Umm, aku pengen ke Singapur atau Malaysia deh. Pengen ke Legoland..
Me: Oh, aku kirain pengen ke Jepang, main salju?
Her: Ummm.., gak. Aku pengen ke amusement park aja.
I felt her hesitation and I rephrased the question.
Me: Kak, if you had all the money in the world, where would you go?
Her: (slowly smiled).. Ummm, Jepang, hehehe. Ada amusement parks dan bisa main salju juga..
Me: (also smiled).. but you know that we don’t have all the money in the world, right?
Her: Yes, I know. Makanya aku mau ke Malaysia aja gpp..
Me: And you do know that one of the reason that we don’t have all that money because I gave up my (office) work and chose to work from home, so I can be closer with you, right?
Her: I know, mamanon..
Me: If I didn’t, I wouldn’t be around that much. And I don’t want that. We wouldn’t be cooking in the kitchen like this, right?
Her: Yes! And this is soooooo much better than holiday..
I instantly felt my eyes got teary..
Me: Oh, Anzalna.. thank you for saying that. I love you, kakak..
Her: I love you too, mamanon..
