i am not superwomen ok

Saya bukan superwomen or ultimate mother. I am learning everyday and making mistakes every moments. Yet, i keep on getting comments/emails asking how I juggle the kids, works, interests, house chores and everything on my daily activities. So here how it goes on a normal life of Elin & co for our morning and night chaos.

I wake up super duper early. Yes, sacrifices and adjustment. Our house is about 25km away from my office using Federal Highway or 38km using (KL Pjaya-NPE route). We chose the later for commuting coz 1) its STRESS Free even we need to commute slightly further but save time and headache even with more money out.

My normal waking up time will be 530am. Its when my alarm goes on. Normally it varies if I am super duper efficient i wake up immediately or else it follow the snoozing time. First task, express my milk and then down to the kitchen to prepare some bread and some tid bits for Khilfi to bring to school. If I am lucky (means Khazin still asleep I maybe able to wipe a quick sandwich or what for hubby and myself). All this from expressing milk to preparing things will take about 30minutes.

Then, naik atas balik, I am off for shower and praying. If Khazin awake, i feed him and just get him to play in his coat as I grab my quick shower. Then, the tasks to wake Khilfi up. All in to drag him to shower and get him ready will take a good 10-15 minutes. During this time is either myself and hubby will alternatelah in between Khilfi and Khazin. khazin normally wakes up around 6+ or 645 gitu. Morning person anak mak. Lps tuh, jaz and me like lipas kudung get ready la. One thing both of us is very simple. I do not need long time to get ready. I dont do mekap sgt and i put on my lipstik in the car. itu ajer pun. We will leave the house around 7-715am.

First stop, Khazin at his nursery and off we go to my office in Bangsar. Normally mmg on time la. And just nice for Hubby naik tren to KLCC.

Then, citer petang. Normally sampai rumah about 630pm onwards. I rarely cook on weekdays, habis jahat wipe up mee goreng ker nasi goreng, or nasi sup ker..things like that only. Or else mmg take away from kedai2 dekat rumah or just cook rice and I bought lauk2 from office. Gedebak gedebuk when we reach home, we will try to cram everything, dinner, angkat baju, kemas bekas2 makan, sterelize bottle and everything before 8pm. By 8pm, we normally already upstairs bergegas2 mandi and solat and all. Normally I will get Khazin to sleep and Jaz will bath Khilfi. I also try will kemas bag khilfi. Khazin stuffs is on weekly basis.

By 830pm, we will be kind of settled. Kain baju normally is my hubby nyer keje. Sapa2 yg sempatla. I just fold it or sometimes he also do it. We dont do laundry on daily basis when it comes to weekdays. We do laundry on Tuesday and Thursday. And Saturday morning and Sunday(both morning and night). We realise it will help in terms of stressing ourselves with laundry on normal weekdays.

During this hour, i can still slot in few minutes in front of the pc, feed khazin if he wakes up, play with khilfi or iron some bajus if needed be. I dun do major ironing for hubby’s khakis and working shirt, i sent all to the dobi to be iron. We get a cleaning lady to come every forthnight. She will sapu, mop, basuh and iron. So see, kena kuar duit sikitlah in order to get some quality lifestyle kot.

And get this, we settle for bed early. By 10 lights off or latest 1030pm. Or the room mmg dah light off sbb nak make sure Khilfi tido awal. By 930 tuh dah psycho Khilfi to settle for bed.

Itu ajelah kan. Takdelah extraordinaire sangat. I think common macam other household ajer. cuma we try to minimise things to break the routine.

Well, thats all. Toodles peeps

    in my case, i have to cook for dinner. the kids just refused to eat bought from outside. walopun tapau nasi goreng kaw2 punya. padahalkan akak masak nasi, ikan goreng, telur. kalo sempat adalah sambal sikit. tu je but they’d eat like dengan penuh berselera. for fibre, i skip vege and serve fruits instead. aci lah kot kan.

    Mine will almost be like yours dear.Tapi lain sikit sebab ade maid. But if we didn’t have maid pun, memang akan sebijik la like yours. Infact , don’t be guilty that u only buy food for dinner for the whole weekday’s nite. This action is what we call adding more time to the 24hours that we have.
    U’re doing great Elin. Dan I rasa semua working mothers outthere can be like u if they want to.. Yg beza cuma malas or rajin aje..

    Hehehehehe..best sebab hubby pon tlong.Tu jdi ringan sikit tugas isterikan Elin.Tapi tyha setuju kalau keluar duit sikit upah maid dtg mop,iron baju 2 kali seminggu tu.X mahal mana…tapi masa yang ada tu kita leh spend untuk menda lain yang lebih penting.Me…suka masak…mcm ummi gak…kalo goreng telur ngan kicap pon ok dah.kadang2 masak tu sampai ada lebih untuk tapau bawak gi keje esok pagi :).Tapi Elin lagi bestlah…sebab hari2 wat breakfast untuk Efi.
