Saphire, Faded Jeans...


...I hope you get your dreams.

Each morning before my little boy dismounts the cake mobile and runs to his school, I would rhyme the same line above to his ear. With him I get extra soggy, mushy, wobbly and teary, maybe because he is the youngest, the smallest, the everything in all the superlatives I bear in my heart. He is turning 6 soon and I am here guilty of treating him like a toddler. Perhaps the thought of not being able to have another baby after him makes it even harder to let him go....or grow up. In my eyes he is that two year old in the see through lubang2 baju or in his rompers with diapers on. I still pick him up and carries him on my back when he is tired of walking or cuddle him like the baby he once was. He still sleeps with me, holding the end of my pyjama pants to drowse himself of, to the dismay of the father and everybody else.

If his kakak is my bestest friend, he is my knight of shining knee he he he. The knight protects the Queen from the ticklish threat of the King, guards her most sacred belonging (such as the pillows) from the smelly Monster, protects her other interests with his royal armour, and runs to her fall at the sound of her slightest wail. When the queen is engulfed in sorrow, this knight of shining knee frequently wipes the queen's tears away with his little hands and reassures her in comfort that everything would be alright. He too assists the servant with the castle chores, picking up the clothes from the clothes line straight to the ironing chamber. He even folds them too, more accurately crumples them. The cleaning lady, the au pair, the chambermaid and all the other helpers of the castle are all pleased with his effort to help. A charmer he is to some, an obedient knight he is to one.

A'dnin with the girls. I don't know why he was the only boy in that story teller group.

The queen's knight of shining knee will soon gallop on his horse to the real world soon. He will be clad in a different uniform of white and blue, leaving the Queen in solitude for the rest of the day. His shining knee will be even shinier after lots of exposure under the sun playing and participating in activities with other royalties. He will grow up and be the finest of man, a wish the queen often recites in her prayers.

Be a good boy A'dnin, a strong one with the biggest of heart. Don't forget your please and thank yous and most importantly the warm smile you are so known for. I will be just outside the gate(a promise I made to him) for the first few days watching you from afar. After that you will have to be on your own with new friends, new teachers, new world altogether. You'll do just fine.


In baju melayu nyanyi nashid. Dah besar dah anak mama ni.

Great teachers at Krista Bandar Mahkota Cheras. From left Teacher Alia, Teacher Selvi, Teacher Jessy, (this teacher has left, not sure of her name) and lastly Teacher Liza.

To all the teachers of Krista, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the help, the guidance and the patience dealing with A'dnin. I would also like to forward my apologies if he has been a handful to take care of. My hats off to all of you for the great work.

ps. A'dnin will miss teacher Selvi so much.


Saphire faded jeans,
I hope you get your dreams.

Wiz...you've put it down so aptly! That's exactly how I feel about my little gentleman's growing up too soon! He's turning 6 on the 17th. How about your knight?

ADIEJIN said...

Wizzy..what would be the knihgts dream ek ? to have Teacher Selvi teach him in primary perhaps ? or to hv his own bed someday ? heheh or even to a GF that looks like his wizzy mom ? donnolah..but whtever it is, may he be blessed with the best the world has to offer.

Seafrost ~ Nina said...

Oh, Wiz!
I know how it feels.
How I always think my kids 'kecik lagi' but the fact is...they're growing up too fast *sigh*
My 2nd daughter cant wait to start her primary school next year, joining her elder sister...soon all will leave, leading their own lives, me stuck with my 'smelly monster' having our honeymoon yet again, hahaha...
Oh, well, by then dah boleh babysit the cucus :)

Wiz said...

Hart - Mine will turn 6 in 22nd! SO can celebrate together one!!!! K will come to your house with a cake!

Jin - Aiyo, you can really think about the "dont have to thinkables"
His dreams would be to have teacher mama teach him in school! ha ha ha! I doubt he would want to have a GF that looks like his mum, that would be too scary. O yea, his ultimate dream would be...to have a little brother.

Nina - ...but you are having another one!!!!! I am so envious of you!!!!! and later another one and another one. Bak satu.
Ait, you too have a smelly monster? What is with this world and the smelly monsters roaming around the perpetual fragrant Queens he he he.

domestic engineer said...

Just like you, I too just do not want my youngest boy to grow up so fast...with the same reason, the same thought of not being able to have another baby after him.

Alaa cute nya nyanyi nasyid tu..

domestic engineer said...

Eh eh Wiz, your A'dnin can celebrate bday together gether with Auntie Ziela la, just a day earlier! Send la cup cakes to my house too, just like the one you sent to Pn Basinah...so sweeeeet. Just add some green leaves, I'd be more than happy. Tq... :)

Anyway, I believe he will be a good boy ... tengok mak dia ler : )

Wiz said...

Ziela - Ye ke same earlier birthday? Oh senang la Aunty wiz terpaksa ingat mcm tu. Bila bday A'dnin je tak pasal2 ingat bday Aunty Ziela ha ha ha.

Doll - not old yet la. It's time to catch up with our other half. My hsbd excited coz he said, it's his turn now. Dgn the kids pun nak rasa terpinggir mcm tu kan, tah apa2 la men ni.

Dee - I don't mind spoiling him and I will prolong it as long as I can.

Yes, I believe he would be a good boy.

You're the youngest and look at you now!

MHB - got!!!! memang got. It's nice to have both a girl and a boy. You have two girls, sweet loving girls which just threw you a surprise Bday Party. That is just too sweet.

alia said...

Wiz, thank you for giving us the opportunity to have guided him this past year. As with all the other students every year, I worry if they will fit in with new friends & new teachers but chance encounters with them every now & then assures me they are doing ok, always making me proud when they tell me of the 'anugerahs' they get. Do bring A'dnin over for visits sometimes.

wizcakes said...

Alia- The pleasure was ours. Don't worry, A'dnin will not just come over but might have to stay for a few hours or so, if mama has to go to work. Can or not?
