Could You Survive a Tiger Attack?

A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of being invited to a birthday party which was held at Dublin Zoo. A party at the zoo was definitely something different for us and I do think that it's a brilliant idea - lots of space for the kids to run around and extremely educational too (even for the adults!).

As we were part of a group, our tour/party host brought us to see a not too often seen tiger feeding session. It's kinda scary now when I think that the only thing that separated us from the tigers was a wall of glass...

Pretty cool isn't it? It also made me wonder whether I'd be able to survive if I was lost in a jungle and I just happen to come a cross a very hungry tiger? Climbing a tree is not an option then isn't it? Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.....

Well, we had so much fun and my friend (the host) made all the food and goodies for the party herself. She's so multi-talented.

Happy Birthday Neelakshi and thank for inviting us. We hope you'll have many happy birthdays to come.

My First Homework

It's been a week since Husayn started school and he seems to be fine. No complaints or whining about it except for his now routine morning request where he will try his luck and ask whether it'd be OK for him to miss school for the day. It's not that he doesn't like it, it's just that he would love to stay home a bit more, climbing on my bed and cuddling up to me while at the same time, do away with his early morning shower.

Anyway, after a week, he excitedly told me yesterday that he finally got his first piece of homework from school.

As usual, when his Daddy gets back from work, Daddy will ask how he did in school and such. Yesterday, the conversation went like this...

Daddy: Husayn, how was school today? Mummy said you have homework today. Did you do it already?

Husayn: School was fine Daddy. Yup, I did my homework. It was too easy and boring. Just joining the dots, Daddy.

Maybe Mummy and Daddy should have a word with Husayn's teacher. Let's give him something more fun and a lot more complicated to work on! Or maybe, Husayn should start colouring in the pictures as well as joining the dots.

Back to School

It was Monday yesterday. After a week of being busy with Eid and everything else remotely related to the festivities, the kids returned to school after their long summer holidays. This time around, it was Husayn's first day at big school. He was so excited and because he didn't want to miss his big day, he was on his bed from 8 on the previous night. Unfortunately, he didn't actually sleep until 10. I think he just couldn't stop thinking about the day to come.

He settled down very well in class and  refused to let me pick him up after school as he preferred to go home by the school bus with his big sister.

Time certainly flies, I guess. It's time for my baby boy to be a bit more independent. I'm a bit shahdu but equally happy at the same time. Mummy prays for the best for you kids. Mummy loves you.
