Getting Old & Sensitive

It's true what they say. As you get older, you become more and more sensitive.

I didn't give much thought about this before. Until recently. When I started feeling so sensitive and emotional about little things. I guess it's a clear sign of me getting old! Sigh...

Adlina and Anas stayed over at Mak's house for 2 nights over last weekend as their cousins from KL were around. They must have been having so much fun that they didn't bother to call home (read: Me!). I felt so emotional about this and started to think that it would come to this eventually when they leave home to go to college or university. Is this an indication of how it would be like? No calls to Mama when the children are away? Sedihnya!! Ok, ok, they are only 11 and 8 now and won't be going away until they are 18. But it hurts to think that they are no longer dependant on me and didn't need my daily hugs and kisses.. Double Sigh...

I AM getting old & over-sensitive!! Aiyoh..

Well, that explains why all 4 of them have been camping in our room on the floor the past 2 nights. The excuse of wanting to watch World Cup together is such a farce. The truth is, I just love having my kids close to me.. It's just so hard to let go...

Now I can imagine what it must have been like for Mak to let 8 of us go. Note to Self: Must make a point to call Mak more often.

Call up your mom today, folks (^_^)

haha... just read this.. no wonder you kept messaging to us to check how's your kids, and that they must be having fun... didn't they ask about their mama... anyway, they were just being kids having fun with all their cousins.. it's true what you say, we must prepare ourselves emotionally in future when our kids become more and more independent... thanks for reminding to call mak :) M

KL, You must have gone thru this with Danial already.. But I know Danial is still v.close to you. Does he call you often whenever he's away?

Yes, actually all my 3 boys still call me more often than not(instead of the other way round) whenever we're not with each other... all 3 like to start the conversation "Mama kat mana?" :)
