I had the most fabulous weekend- I spent the weekend babysitting my 9 year old sister Sumayya and we had a wonderful time! It was scary in that I had a responsibility towards her - and she got sick and i had to nurse her at night - and if I might say so myself, I think I did pretty fine! Alhamdulillah, she is an angel so it made it that much easier to handle! We went out, did shopping , did all her favorite things ( ok , so i spoilt her!). I surprised myself by being so patient and giving and always wanting to make sure she was happy and ok. But I also learnt that it was a different life having kids...they need your time and attention and all your activities for the weekend revolve around them! It was probably easier this weekend because my husband was away so I COULD give up all my time for her! But after this w/end I respect single mothers who do it by themselves- its not easy driving around, managing the house, working all by yourself- so heres to single mothers!
So now Im at work and I miss her so much! Cant wait to get home to be with her again!
So that was my practice lesson for being a mother one day, Inshallah.
I loved it :)
