ok, a few more hours before my time is up. (macam kena recall masok jail, or worse, kena execution gitu eh? :p)
am still feeling queasy, lethargic, a little achy and chilly from the leftover viral flu which i’d contracted on friday out of the blue, like what bad timing huh?
and nevermind that i had over six months (technically, is apr 3 to nov 3 considered seven months?) to get ‘things’ done, it’s simply… not enough!!
i’ve been trying to come up with a list of ‘accomplishments’, kinda like your half-yearly work appraisal thing you know. erm, so far, i think, not so impressive.
A. Work achievement/progress
Project I: Baby A
i) Gave birth to Baby. (with least possible incurrence of additional hospitalisation costs.)
ii) Placed Baby to sleep in own room and through the night by eight weeks.
iii) Provided complete nourishment for Baby 0-6months, direct from source. (with no supplementary requirements.)
iv) Provided basic care to Baby. (including clothing, bathing, diapering, minyak-telon-ing, urang-aring-ing, etc.)
v) Provided stimulation to Baby to best of ability. (ie. verbal, visual, social, emotional.)
vi) Ensured proper immunisation of Baby and post-immunisation care. (6-in-1 package)
vii) Providing homemade first foods to Baby.
viii) Weaning Baby on to bottled teats.
ix) Captured Baby’s photographic moments and physical milestones.
Project II: Elder Child A
i) Ensured smooth transition from single child to elder child and prevented any possibilities of sibling jealousy.
ii) Developing verbal skills, physical abilities, emotional well-being, and setting of ‘moral compass’.
iii) Successful toilet training to underpants in daytime, with increasingly lesser assistance.
Progress: Almost completed (night training still on-going)
iv) Ensured smooth transition from three-hourly daily playgroup to full-day centre-based care.
v) Weathered through various strains of ‘The Terrible Twos’ syndrome with minimum repercussions.
Progress: Good (behaviour still under monitor)
(*note: employed services of new helper, forecast looks promising.)
Project: Social & Love Life
Progress: Minimal. Positively dismal.
B. Training and Development Plans
Nil to date.
C. Career plans/ possible posting
i) Child-bearing career: Retired.
ii) Mothering career: On-going (end date: most likely on deathbed.)
iii) Wifely career: Endeavouring for a raise and better remuneration.
iv) Professional career: To be reviewed…
and in order to ensure that C.(iv) gets to see the light of day, i will need to log off this instance and literally wake up in the first light of day. (note to self: do not forget to bring the ‘espresso machine’ and all its parts, unlike the last first-day-of-work!)
wish me luck, people! (and good luck to you too, kiddos, ha ha.)
mummy to aniq: aniq, daddy go to work, mummy go to work, aniq go to school, ok?
aniq: noo, aniq go to work also!
mummy: you want to go to work? where?
