I don't let my kids play with dirt!

hi there,

if you asked me what kind of mother I am, so there are very long list I will give you, and one of the things in the list are "I don't let my kids play with dirt"!

I guess my kids will feel frustrated once they knew this.

one of my BFF laughed at me when I told her this. she said I should be more open, and let the kids grow up with the 'dirtiness' so that they will become more out-going person. don't make the kids 'suffer' by locking them inside the house most of the time.

I give a deep thought about what my BFF told me. so, I crossed it in my list I don't let my kids play with dirt .... I need to change myself. I don't want my kids to grow up feeling fear with nature. I should let them play outside. let them experienced themselves how does it feel playing with the dirt, and in the same time still ensure they are always keep themselves clean, haha.

I should let them grow up adventurously. thanks to my BFF telling me this and lucky enough I listened to her. it is not only my kids having a good time playing with the mud and the dirt, but it makes me grow closer with the nature.

I realized I ignored some of the part of my life >>>> growing up with the nature. most of my day now, I prefer to lay back in the house, browsing and googling using my tabs :( ...

this is the trail to go to our merphin-house. the rubber tree belong to our neighbor.

I know it is gross (what kind of mother I am!) to let the kids play with the mud, but I just can't take away the happiness of my kids when they really enjoy experiencing playing with the mud. They just can't stop stomping their feet over and over again, and each time they made it, they giggles and said "mommy, mommy see, the water become milo" ....

we are surrounded by the greens. it does purify our oxygen, hehe. 15 minutes morning walk always feel good to me.

and the sky is blue.

and if none of you never see how do rubber tree look like, tada! but it hard to see the rubber taper. mr.Husband told me no one tape the tree after early dawn. oh! ok, so what time do they tape the tree?

somewhere 4am, or a bit early than that.

errr........ it's hard work. taping in the middle of the darkness plus the mosquitoes.

telling lil' Amin about the bamboo gate.

I always once wondering why kampung people love to use the bamboo as their main gate. I thought maybe because the bamboo is very easy to get, so they just use it instead of the modern fancy gate.

I just knew the thing after I get married to my 'kampung man', mr.Husband. hehe.

it's because of the buffaloes ....you don't want your beautiful fancy gate get rammed by the buffaloes. they rammed the bamboo gate, but price of damage is zero. it is fine to replace the bamboo gate once badly damaged, you can always replace the bamboo for free.

I told lil' Iman the mud is quite deep for him to walk through, but he insisted to try going in the mud. and the 'new me' just let him go to fulfill his curiosity.

go and discover by yourself how do you like the mud, lil' Iman (mommy have angry face with beautiful smile, LOL).

so he learnt his lesson.

"mommy, it's deep. Iman cannot walk"

see, mommy told Iman already kan.

done playing with the mud, let's go up and get clean.

because of the kids, now I prefer living in the kampung more than being a city girl. I have my own reason for this. hope you all always find happiness in life. Happiness can be everywhere, just how you turn yourself to accept that happiness.

life is so beautiful.

happy parenting everyone.
