I am 33 today and my little boy turns 43 weeks today too! Alhamdulillah, all praise and glory to Allah for giving me a chance to still work on myself to be a better servant to Him. For blessing me with my wonderful boy. For every single thing that I have and do not have, for everything I experienced and missed, for every person that came into my life and the ones that left. Alhamdulillah, alhamdulillah, ala kulli hal, alhamdulillah.
This morning, as I watched him when he woke up, hair so messy, eyes barely opened, he half-crawled, half-tumbled out of bed, I thought about how quickly he is losing his baby-ness. I stretched out my arms, ready to cradle him for his morning feed – and he crawled straight past me, open the door on his own and went out to play!
At only 9 months and he is already needing me less and less! *cries
But it’s ok my boy, mummy knew that this is the natural process of you growing up. But do know that you can need mummy less and less, but you can never need Allah less and less.
