My anak2ku - My life!

Hi there!

I try to figure out what sort of blog that I want to write.. without any interesting idea on my mind, limited time and knowledge. Finally I decided to share my experience of starting a new phase of my life: being a father of my two charming prince and my two beautiful princess whose name are Iman Hafiy (19/02/2007), Siti Fadiyah (18/04/08) and Siti Fathiyah (20/11/2009) & Iman Hazim (19/09/2011)
Everytime I look at them.. I see hope renewed and how simple life can be.

* My thanks go to my beloved wife for showing me the real definitions of marriage and being the best mother for our kids..

Sister fights

Jiji turns five on April 18th and Dedek turns four on Nov, 21st.  They got along beautifully until last year.  Now it seems they fight all the time over toys, cartoon channel and who look alike Barbie (Can you imagine how complicated to be a judge!).  Most of the time, I keep an eye on things but try to stay out of the fight by reminding myself that they usually can resolve it themselves. 

If they can’t resolve a conflict on their own, I act first as a mediator, teaching them how to listen to one another’s point of view.  I help them brainstorm solutions and negotiate.  If they force me into taking a stand, I simply try to give each girl the love and support she needs.  I also try to reserve some time for myself each day when I tell the girls I’m “off duty.” 

Now and then, Jiji forgets her strength and gets too pushy with her younger sister.  Sometimes it’s best for me to ignore their arguing, and other times I need to step in and send them to their rooms to cool down.  Different methods work better at different times.  They aren’t the same every day, and neither am I.  If I’ve had an easy day, then I can be more tolerant and patient.

 Good thing is they sleep together sharing pillow and blanket!
