I Miss Being Around Girls!

yesterday we spent the evening at kak zaida's home, after visiting kak su and her gorgeous newborn, baby huda. kak zaida was the one who took care of the boys when i delivered kazim.

kak zaida has 3 girls, iman, ilham and irdina and the youngest, a boy, ihsan. also at her home was syahira, daughter of eiyda who had an unfortunate incident few days ago where she broke her thigh bone while playing bowling. (speedy recovery, dear!) joining the girls was also najwa, daughter of mr. khairul's senior at mckk.

girls, girls, girls!

oh, how i miss being around girls!

  • i grew up with 4 other siblings who are all girls
  • i went to an all-girl school from standard 1 to form 5
  • my cousins are mostly girls

...and now i'm staying in a house full of boys!

oh, i LOVE my boys so much but i can't help feeling all warm and fuzzy today to be among the girls. today, it has been all about girls!

kak su's newborn is a girl. going to kak zaida's house means i get to see her 3 girls. both eiyda's girls were there too. and their friend, najwa happened to be there as well.

girls, girls, girls!

after a tiring playtime, and the girls had their shower, we sat together for awhile at one of the girls' rooms when i was tucking in kazim. the dads were downstairs watching (what else) football.

the girls all in pink pajamas, sprawling next to me on the mattress.

we got to talking about the girls having facebook accounts, books i like, which disney prince is their favorite and watching horror movies. the girls told me about their gymnastics lessons and even showed me some moves. it was nothing really - just simple conversation between this 'auntie' with a bunch of girls.

...but i enjoyed the moment very much. i just miss having a girly conversation, i guess.

one of the girls actually asked, "auntie, boring ke kat rumah?" refering to me having only sons.

i actually took a moment to think, and replied with a smile, "tak boring. tapi best kalau ade girls jugak..."
