My beautiful princess....Maleesha

Fathimath Maleesha Ahmed [22nd November 2013]
Last week my daughter graduated from preschool. Yes, I was so proud when she came down with the certificate wearing her fancy little red gown. Both my husband and I clapped like anything and some parents I knew from my daughters class turned with a smile on their face knowing that they would be doing the same when their children’s names were called.

Indeed it was a very important milestone for our daughter Maleesha and us. Time flies and the little bundle of joy that we held in our arms have now grown up and is ready for big kids school. I am so happy with her achievements and am ready with her to overcome the obstacles that she would face in the future. One thing I’m quite certain is that she is smart and will give her best no matter how hard or difficult it is. And that is the key to success and her mommy and daddy will always be there, so basically she has nothing to worry about. 

Children are so innocent and pure and as she grows up, I fear for her. I wish I could protect her from all the evil around us. I wish I could just destroy and get rid all the bad influences and people in the world so that our children could grow up safe and protected. But I suppose we need those bad influences to teach our children what is right and what is wrong and I hopefully would be there to tell and guide her in every stage of life until she is ready to fly on her own.

I love my children more than anything in the world and I know that they love me too, but I didn’t realize how much Maly loved me and appreciated what both my husband I do for her until quite recently. You see, she’s just six years old so I assumed that she loved me to bits and never thought of how deeply she thought about everyday activities. I was so amazed to learn that she is so mature and wise for her age. Let me tell you how I found out. 

She is down with fever, right now even she has a mild fever and in the afternoon my husband would take her to the clinic to get some tests done. Anyway, I was at work day before yesterday when my mother called and said that she was vomiting. So I quickly went home and on my way I went to the shop and bought some of her favourite food. Eating would be the least favourite thing to do, especially when we are running a high fever, isn’t it? So just imagine how bad it would be for little children!

So, as soon as I got home, I made an omelet and boiled some sausages for her. She was quite weak so I let her lie down on bed and tried to feed her. After eating a little bit and drinking juice, she sat up and said the most beautiful words that I have ever heard and would remember for the rest of my life.

Maly: “Mommy, you are always cooking delicious food for me. You are always taking me to school and helping me to learn. And you are always taking care of me. You are the greatest mommy in the world. I love you so much.” 

For a minute, I was speechless. I was teary eyed and I can’t explain how loved I felt. I have never felt so happy in my entire life. I could withstand all the injustices and unfairness's in life as long as my sweet little girl is there beside me. I know for sure that she would love me and there is no question about it, I would love and protect her till my last breath. Not only my daughter, I would love all my children. I am sure my son would love me as much as my daughter and when he could express his feelings, he would do the same. He is just one and half right now! 
My daughter and I
I can’t wait for her to start school and watch her grow up to be a great young woman. Quite often I keep on wishing that both my children would remain little so that I could bath them, powder their little booty, make up silly stories to impress them and simply just take care of them. However, I am also very eager and curious about them too. I wonder whether my daughter would be an astronaut like she says or be the next Einstein! She can be a stewardess or a housewife if she wants! I just want her to be happy and that would be the answer to my prayer from the day I learnt that I was going to be a mother.
