I'm In Standard Five Not Five

said the boy just the other day.

Daddy wanted to help scrap the crusted rice in the claypot chicken rice he was having, but he refused Daddy's help. He's not 5!
Oh my. My independent, not-yet 11 years old boy.

p.s. He ironed all his uniform on Sunday (under Daddy's supervision). ^^

    4. Aiyoh, this boy really good at "physco"Ing his parents one. One minute he wants to be treated as a big boy, then the other he'll say that he is "a small boy".

      I only asked whether he wants to iron his clothes or not and he said yes. Of course, if you want to ask, make it sound like you are asking a favour and not forcing him to do chores. Even I hate if I felt like I am forced to do something:-D

    5. Child labour! Child labour! Minah rempinator gets Raimie to work more on his stuff so that she's more free up and can cuddle with Zaini :)

    6. Zaini was standing right beside Raimie. How to cuddle! LOL

      If Mommy want to cuddle up, Son gets to play notebook, Nintendo DS and watch TV all at the same time! Bwahaha

    1. Anay, by 10 my mom already asked me n my younger brother to go to the Sunday market to buy groceries.

      I don't ask him to do much chores yet, but he needs to clear up his own things.

  5. Good! Don't over-pamper the kids, they must learn to do all things by themselves - good for them when they go out into the world. My daughter's coursemates - went to NZ...blew up a few microwaves....like when one tried to cook egg in it. Girls, you know...girls... Budak zaman sekarang! Nak tahu...main ipad, smartphone only...and not that they're doing anything educational or useful! Tsk! Tsk!

    1. Girls or boys, both need to know how to look after themselves.

      I guess part of the blame falls to the parents. No need to lift a finger and help out at home (after all, that's a maid's job). Just study any get all As more important. No?

  10. I want to praise Raimie for ironing the uniform himself. I want to praise Zaini's patience in guiding him. You are a blessed woman, lina.

    1. I ironed mine and my siblings' when I was in primary school so, I feel that Raimie doing it now is normal. :)

    2. I don't iron my clothes because I was a lazy bum and I wore my shirt with all the kedut kedut to school. My mama was too busy taking care of my sisters and family matter.

      I know I'm the eldest, should do more chores but what the heck!

    1. The Sekolah Agama is actually an academic agama class. There's an Islamic version of UPSR too, called UPSRA with 7 subjects and can be used if he decides to join a Sekolah Menengah Agama and then maybe continue on to a reputable Middle East Uni. It's not all about reading Al-Quran, you know. :)
