Simply The Best!

HAPPYBIRTHDAY

There are two dates in November that are special to my family: the 10th and the 14th.

Mrs Mom always told us that me, Fatimah and Ali were lucky to have a second mother.

Fatimah and Ali used to ask who that other mother was, but I knew just the person Mrs Mom was talking about. Dr Auntie, Mrs Mom’s elder sister, was someone who had been there for us right from the start. She’s not just your average auntie! Out of everybody on Earth, I haven’t met anybody that could replace her! She’s loving and understanding, and it seems that her heart is made of pure gold.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a day go by without Mrs Mom and Dr Auntie talking to each other, and by that, I don’t mean just once, I mean at least 10 times (or 100, I lose count)! Mrs Mom and Dr Auntie are tightly knit and are very close sisters; I think we only ever need to make a phone call if we’re in urgent need of help! Sometimes, Mrs Mom doesn’t break any good news to us until Dr Auntie is tuned in and listening! And that is how important she is to the family!

Another great trait that makes Dr Auntie ‘Dr Auntie’ is that she’ll never say no, and will do anything to fulfil our needs. I think that if I asked her for £1,000,000, she’d rob a bank just for me (although, of course, she’s an honest and kind person, so I highly doubt that she’ll do anything of the sort. I really need to read those T’s and C’s.)!

I can still remember how she used to always find a way to make me happy when I was little. She knew I was the kind of kid that absolutely LOVED opening presents, so, on top all the other presents she’d got for my birthday, she’d take the wrapping paper and wrap anything she could find – literally. Books, socks, pens, plates. In fact, I still recall one account where I was surprised with a biscuit! Isn’t she sweet?

There’s many other qualities that make her probably the best auntie ever (subject to prejudice and sheer adoration!), so it’s no wonder nobody was like her! She’s my biggest inspiration and is somebody that always tries hard! She won’t give up and will not stop at anything to help her family! She’s definitely the role model to follow! Now, coming back to those two special dates in November, the 14th marks Dr Auntie’s birthday! The whole family looks forward to this day, because it’s that time of the year when we can really thank her for everything she’s done for us!

Dr Auntie has, of course, done many favours for me too, so I have specially dedicated a poem to her, which, I must admit, is small compared to what she has done for me, but is my way of saying thank you. Dr Auntie, this is for you!

Simply The Best!

Dedicated to Dr Auntie

There’s millions of people in the world,

But none of them are quite like you,

You’re funny, loving, you’ve got a heart of gold!

And you make us feel like “YAY!” when we’re blue

You’re always there when we need help,

We can just give you a yelp!

A mother you are similar to,

It seems there’s nothing you can’t do!

You’re always by our side,

In the dark, you’re our brightening guide!

And I’d gladly go on and on,

Because when you’re around, no hope is gone!

But it is somebody’s special day,

And it’s a reason for you to shout HOORAY!

Because HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

It’s YOUR special day!

Happy birthday, Dr Auntie! May God make this the best birthday ever!

p/s: Dear Dr Auntie, please pray for my interview, so I can bring back the biggest birthday present of all!

Your favourite nephew (self-claimed! 😁),

Who Else But Mum!?

Who Else But Mum!?

(A poem written by The Pawsome Lion)

~Dedicated to Mrs Mom

I still remember how you smiled at me,

And that twinkle in your eyes,

Our laughs when we had fun,

The tears of joy we shared

I still remember how you helped me up

When I fell to the floor,

Your hugs when I felt down,

Your praise when I had done well

I still remember after all these years

How kind you’ve been to me,

How great you’ve been to my brother,

How great you’ve been to my sister

And I still come to you for hugs,

For smiles, for advice, for a laugh,

Because I think,

Who else but mum,

To go to for joy!?

Who else but mum,

To go to for help!?

Who else? Who else? Who else but mum!?

And on this very special day,

I’d like to say…

Happy Birthday!

To the best mother in the world!

 

11 Things I Love About You

Dear Mr Dad,

The 17th of June has always been a date that our family looks forward to. Yes, it’s your birthday and it’s right next to Father’s Day (Lucky you!)! That’s why I’m writing this post!

Over the years, you’ve been a PAWSOME father and a great husband for Mrs Mom, and you’ve made a lot of sacrifices for us. Ever since I was born, you’ve been like my best friend and you haven’t failed to keep Little Miss Diva and Ali the Salt Bubba happy too! You’ve got a great sense of humour and you’ve got a heart of pure gold! You’ve supported us and loved us with all your heart and you’ve always stood by our side. You are a very -and I mean VERY – PAWSOME dad! After all, you are the one and only Mr Dad! So, we’d all like to say THANK YOU for everything you’ve done! We really appreciate it! And since it’s such a special occasion, I’ve written a lovely (hopefully you’ll find it that way) poem, just for you!

11 Things I Love About You

A poem written by Omar Mukhtar, The Pawsome Lion on behalf of the whole family

Fatimah The Little Miss Diva, Ali The Salt Bubba and Mrs Mom

I love the way you keep us happy,

The way you sing to us,

I love how you smile at us in the morning,

The way you advise us

I love the way you play chess with me,

The way you comb our hair,

I love how you know how to make us laugh,

The way you help with your great sense of fashion

I love the way you love Mrs Mom, 

And how you care for her,

But most importantly, I love the way you stand by our side

Which makes you a PAWSOME father!

And on this special day, I’d like to say…

Happy Birthday! Happy Father’s Day!

From your loving family!

Happy birthday and Happy Father’s Day, Mr Dad! We hope they both turn out to be great days! May God grant all of your wishes and make them the best days ever! 😀

p/s: Dear God,

Please reserve my dad the best place in heaven coz he totally deserves it!

The One for Me!

This post is dedicated to someone very special who has devoted their whole life to me. Of course, that person is no one other than…Mr Dad ! It was his birthday on Friday and I thought it would be a great idea to write a post just for him as a birthday present!

Anyone can be a father but it takes someone special to be a dad, and that’s why Mr Dad is the one for me! He always stands out from the crowd. He is a loving and caring father and listens to everything I have to say. He also has a heart of gold! Mr Dad’s fun, has a sense of humour and he never fails to keep the whole family happy! He has taken good care of me ever since I was born and from then on, he has been like a friend! Every dad is special but my dad is different. That’s because he’s the one and only Mr Dad!

As a coincidence, Mr Dad’s birthday is also near the date of Father’s Day! Wow! This means that he’s going to get more presents than anyone in the world! And, it also means that I have time to give Mr Dad one more very extra-special present, his very own birthday poem! So, here goes!

My Father!

(By The Pawsome Lion)

My father is the greatest, he’s the one to beat!

Don’t mess with him because he’s as fit as an athlete!

My father can do anything, anything at all,

From cooking to cleaning to singing all day, and he’s CRAZY ’bout football!

My father is the best to me, he cannot be replaced,

If I stick with him then everything can be aced!

My father can be a busy bee

But get this, he’s still the one for me!

And when I think of him

This is what ‘FATHER’ means to me:

F   riendly

      A   lways caring

T   he best

H     elpful

         E   verlasting love

    R   ighteous

 

Before I go, there’s one more thing I would like to share with everyone. An EXCLUSIVE video of Mr Dad making pizzas! I guarantee that it’ll make you say “WOW!”. Here it is:

Once again, Happy Birthday and Father’s Day, Mr Dad! Hope you have a great 2 days! I’m sure you’ll enjoy everything from the cake to the presents!

p/s: Leave a comment if you do anything special for your father this Father’s Day!

My Little Miss Diva!

c19e8bd0abfe6b80baa6b225bc38b347.jpg

Since 2014, the 3rd of January has been an important date for my family! This is because of the long awaited addition to my small family. Of course, it’s none other than my Little Miss Diva’s day of birth. Mrs Mom said, “She was a miracle!”

miracles.jpg

I was 7 years old when I found out that Mrs Mom was pregnant with Little Miss Diva. When I first heard the news, I was stupefied! I couldn’t believe it! The news had me jumping with excitement because I never had a brother or sister before.

MikeWazowski.png

There was a strong connection between me and Little Miss Diva right from the beginning. Whenever Mrs Mom wanted to sleep, I always had to sit beside her and keep her company. Sometimes, even when she was still in Mrs Mom’s tummy, I would read stories to Little Miss Diva at night and talk to her all the time. Occasionally, she would kick Mrs Mom’s tummy as she listened to me talk to her.

NETWORKmimicry-strong-connections.png

In the period of time when Mrs Mom was pregnant, I did a lot of research on (newborn) babies and found out lots of amazing facts, like how fragile a baby’s skull can be. Other than that, I also did some research about the baby’s growth and development. I did the research in order to help me get prepared when Little Miss Diva came into the world. I have to say, the research helped me a lot!

Research.jpg

Then, around the time when Mrs Mom was going to give birth, me and Mr Dad went to Mothercare to buy a bodysuit for Little Miss Diva that said “I LOVE MY BROTHER!” XD It looked so cute! I was sure that it would suit Little Miss Diva. The bodysuit was my first gift for her. We also bought a lot of other things for her too.

Finally, after a long wait, it was the time for Little Miss Diva to breathe her first breath of fresh air. The time when Little Miss Diva was born was an exhilarating moment. As soon as she came out of Mrs Mom’s tummy, she was crying like mad! A little while later, she managed to calm herself down. As she laid down on her bed, she looked so cute whilst she slept and snored. I was really looking forward to spending more time with her!

When she was first born, she was diagnosed with Cow’s Milk Allergy and couldn’t drink any milk other than Mrs Mom’s milk! Whenever she took in dairy products, her body would react badly and she would start to vomit. She had to get a special milk powder that was suitable for babies and toddlers who are lactose intolerant. She is beginning to eat more dairy products now but her body still reacts badly. The poor little thing is even allergic to her own birthday cake! 😦

As Little Miss Diva grew, me and her made lots of great memories. When she was around 7 months old, she grew her first tooth! I found that out on Saturday 19th July 2014. She was chewing on her teether a lot in this period of time. After that, Mrs Mom decided to teach Little Miss Diva to use a toothbrush at an early stage. That day was Monday 21st July 2014. Sometimes, she still wants me to brush her teeth though.

After that, on Tuesday 22nd July 2014, me and Mrs Mom discovered that she could clap her hands! As we were watching TV, Mrs Mom started cheering and told Little Miss Diva to clap. That’s when her new hidden talent was revealed! Unfortunately, Mr Dad was at work but we showed him as soon as he came home.

Later, she started to crawl on Wednesday 6th August 2014! Mr Dad was in the kitchen but Dadajee was also on FaceTime call to witness it. This was just one step before she would be walking so that would be good! When she started to crawl, she was very active and crawled everywhere.

Then, she started to talk to me when she was only 9 months old. That is very good for a normal baby. That means that she will learn quickly in the future! 😉 Now, she can finally share her thoughts with us!

Speech-bubbles-resized.jpg

Next came the time when she was walking secretly behind my back! I didn’t realise it until one day, I turned around and found her walking around and playing. When she saw me looking at her, she quickly sat down and did something else. Then, I asked her to walk again but she refused to do it. But, she was a pro when she walked with her knees. She could manage to walk all around the house with her knees! Later on, when we moved house in March 2015, she was still walking in her own special way which was using her knees! A little while later, her knees were swollen from all that walking with her knees because unlike our old house, the floor was oak flooring and that caused her knees to be swollen. From then on, she started using her feet for a good purpose!

baby-feet-first-steps.jpg

When she was younger, I enjoyed looking after her and giving her milk. Everyday, she would always ask me to read some books to her. There are also some times when she would read a book to me! This has been our daily routine since she was born until today. On other occasions, I will make chocolate spread sandwiches for her and feed her all the time.

self-improvement-books.jpg

From time to time, she would pray beside me and follow me as I prayed. Whenever she wants to pray with me, she will start to shout because she wants me to get her prayer mat out! Now and again, she will invite me to dance with her, except this time, I have to follow her! 😛

Every so often, Little Miss Diva wants me to give her a bath. I still have to do that now. But, it’s fine with me because we have pawsome fun in the bath all the time. She will splash and play while I pour water over her and wash her. She can also wash herself, but only when she wants to. I love spending good quality time with her!

quality-time-project-with-frame-and-words.jpg

Suddenly, with no warning whatsoever, her personality changed a bit. First, she didn’t like to put girly clothes and accessories on but now, she’s a bit of a diva and likes to put dresses on all the time! She is also a big fan of Frozen, Minion and Mickey Mouse. Now, when I said Mickey Mouse, I didn’t mean BOTH Mickey and Minnie. I only meant Mickey Mouse because Little Miss Diva only likes him! I don’t know why she is like that.

Little Miss Diva has many good qualities in her. Of course, No. 1 would be that she’s super duper CUTE and BEAUTIFUL! She is also very protective whenever Mr Dad or Mrs Mom is angry with me or Baby A. She will go to them straight away and say “Don’t do that!” or “Stop!”. Another good quality that she has is kindness and friendliness. She loves playing with other people and likes to make friends. Little Miss Diva also likes to sing songs (especially Frozen songs like Let It Go!) and dance to them too! She also has a great imagination because when she plays with a toy, she will try to make the story real. For example, when she plays with her toy doll, she will put the doll in her push chair and pretend that she’s going shopping.

Me and Little Miss Diva enjoy doing plenty of things together. Sometimes we like to sing and dance together and in other times, we draw pictures with each other. On other occasions, we will play shopping with each other. I will be the shopkeeper and she will be the customer that buys things from my shop. Some other times, we will do some arts and crafts together. Little Miss Diva also loves pretending to cook with me. Little Miss Diva enjoys sharing her time with me. And of course, what every brother and sister likes to do…give each other a CUDDLE!!!!!

I ,as a brother, think that Little Miss Diva is the best sister in the world! She has lots of good qualities, we enjoy spending time together and I love her more than anything in this world! After all, what would my life be like without her? She is a sister that is cute, kind, friendly and PAWSOME! I am super duper proud to have a little sister like her!

This year marks your second birthday my Little Miss Diva! I know that you’ve enjoyed your birthday cake and presents on Sunday. However, I would like to share a special poem which I’ve written especially for you…

My Little Miss Diva!

I am your brother

And you are my sister,

Every day together is like a fun twister!

I am always there

When you are hurt,

I’ll pick you up and brush off that dirt

You are my sister

And you’re like my friend,

You’ve got so much time that with me you can spend!

You are there

To keep me company,

When we are together, we are one big tree!

We’ll hold each others hands

And never let go,

We’ll make it through hard times and together we’ll grow

Tears of joy

And tears of sorrow,

Do not worry, it’ll be fine tomorrow

We’ll be close together

As we dance through life,

Listening to the birds that sound like a fife

We’ll get through it quick,

No matter what life sends,

We’ll be the pair that will somehow transcend!

We will fly,

High in the sky,

Like one big eagle,

Great and golden,

We will fly over the five oceans!

Never break apart,

Gotta stick together!

Never leave each other,

That way, we’ll be as swift as a feather!

Be one big family,

Make a never ending story!

SURPRISE!!!!!

surprised-baby

Hey guys! Finally, it’s the weekends. Hooray! Yesterday, someone came to surprise us. It was… Dr. Auntie! All she did was get on board a train, take a taxi and drive up to my house and knock on the door. As soon as Little Miss Diva saw Dr. Auntie, she couldn’t stop rolling around. Anyway, Dr. Auntie came into my house and hugged us all. Baby ‘A’ was smiling up to his ears. As usual, Dr. Auntie had treats for us all (well, at least nearly all of us).

Treats-Banner-Practice-201106-1000x240

My gift was something that I had been longing for days…weeks…months…years!! It was… MY NAME CARDS!!!!!! 😀 Yes, you heard me right, name cards for The Pawsome Lion. Dr. Auntie had made these name cards (as shown below) by hand. She designed them, printed them, cut them, stuck them and put them in a box all by herself. And all of them were for me (and my friends, of course!). There were 114 name cards in total.


If any of you have read about the meeting then I’m sorry that the writing is not that PAWSOME. You see, because Dr. Auntie came yesterday, I couldn’t focus properly. I was thinking about partying. So my post turned out to be GRUESOME! 😛

simon-cowell-thumbs-down

Today, I gave out the name cards that Dr. Auntie gave to me. Everyone was so amazed. At first, everyone thought that it was a business card but when I told them that they were for my blog, they said, “Ohh!” 😀

wow2

I can’t be too long coz it’s Dr. Auntie’s birthday and she wants to have a movie night with me. We’ve also got a PAWSOME cake for her! 😛


p/s: Awesome, Moresome, Pawsome…Not Gruesome! 😉
