Pengalaman Cerai Susu Badan

Hi semua!

Terlalu banyak benda yang nak diblogkan tapi tak sempat...most of the time I'm either sleeping, do my Sweetalmiraz thing or catching up with my Vampire Diaries, HIMYM and Revenge episodes...hehehe...(ini pada waktu malam ye, sebab siang I still have a day job, go through traffic jams what not... yada yada)

So basically kali ni saja nak cerita and simpan in blog about how Amar (my second son) cerai susu badan. He is now 2 years and 4 months and can you believe it, he's only stopped bf since last week? Selepas pelbagai cara (takdela pelbagai sangat just tak bagi and then episod menangis, dahla i tak pandai hati kering) - so biasalah naluri ibu, mesti nak carik cara nak solve problem, so Google and found out about jaddam.

Apakah jaddam itu? I pun taktau sebab tak sempat beli. Meanwhile I asked my SIL (KMel) on how to do this cerai susu thing. She said just apply asam jawa and see the results.

So I tried. I letak asam jawa (normal time, iaitu time nak tido)...then bagi kat dia. Suddenly I heard Amar said "butuk! butuk!" (busuk)....sungguh I tak tahan nak tergelak dengar his remarks...I calmed myself down and pura-pura tanya kenapa sayang?...Then, he said "pegi basuh tangan"....lagilah I tergelak besar memang tak cover punya.....maybe he was trying to ask me to wash it or something...but he said tangan instead of you-know-what...it was soooo funny!

After that he turned away. Masa ni I dah sedih lak, sebab menyusu baby ni sesuatu yang amat special. But he's a toddler now so memang I have to let go. Then I offered him lagi sekali lagi. He said "taknak, manis". And that was it until now.

Once in a while I asked whether he wants it or not but he refused and said it's manis....maybe what he meant to say is masam, but he just picked that word, you know.

So that's the story. Funny and menarik sebab time Amir dulu tak camni. Masa Amir dulu I just told him that he can't breastfeed anymore since he's already starting to talk (he was 2 at that time). And he was ok. Amar ni lain sikit...in fact setiap anak tu berbeza and setiap budak tu berbeza. Tak boleh nak generalise the whole age group....and in terms of solutions, sometimes it's not the 'one size fits all' thing.

Now I'm happy that he just sleeps without bf and I can sleep throughout the night. Bila dia terbangun tu, dia merengek sikit and then tido sendiri terus. Bila dia mintak susu, it's my husband's time to wake up and make the milk for him........heheheheeh

DIY Cake Stand

I am crazy about cake stands!...especially the colourful ones. So after I rummaged through my mother-in-law's cupboard, I found 2 old steel trays and a fancy glass (and of course with her permission, I took them..), I decided this is the perfect time to do a DIY cake stand!...(notice the exclamation mark, too excited there)...

Of course, with some research, I managed to read about the how-tos and find the perfect primer and colour to suit my preference (actually I nak purple or light pink tapi takde la pulak).

Metal primer in Malaysia Metal primer (rust free) and colour spray (code 26). I think you can get them at any DIY shops.

I didn't take a proper picture for the instructions. Silly me. But maybe you can see them in these pictures of Amar which my husband took (with my hand in the background).....:p

First, I sand the surface of the tray, just to smoothen the rusty bits. Then I used a heavy duty glue and attached the glass to the tray (I did it upside down so that I know that it's right at the centre). Then I leave it to dry for a day (I put something on top just to give it some pressure, nothing too heavy but something just the right weight).

When its attached, I sprayed it with the primer and leave it to dry for another half day. When the primer dried, I sprayed the desired colour. I had to wait for the top part to dry (it took a day) and then I sprayed the remaining parts the day after….errr…actually my husband helped me to spray the primer and the colour…I nak buat tapi banyak kerja rumah pulak nak buat…heheheh….(I mean…. I made lunch and tidied up so….)

The result, is a DIY cake stand!

Of course, I cannot put cake/food on top (because of the paint/chemical thing), so I used a doilie on the surface and put wrapped  cookie. You can also do this DIY stand to stash your jewellery....I love this DIY!

Amir and the Cockroaches Birthday Party

His current favourite cartoon show (together with Baby Tunes, Finn and Gumball).....but he chose this as the theme. I think it's a bit yucky but I don't see anything wrong with it....heheeh...you only get to be 6 once and he's currently in this Tom and Jerry/Oggy/Back Kom phase.

I decided to hold his birthday party in school because it's gonna be his final year in school, plus we already had a big birthday party last year (with bouncy castle everything) which you can read last year’s party at Amir’s Batman themed Party.

So this year we toned down a bit. I ordered his birthday cake from Zurina cakes. I would say it's an awesome cake, the best so far. You can view her page here.

I also never fail to order cookies from my favourite baker. Love her cookies! So tidy and tasty!

Me and hubby (through Sweetalmiraz), prepared the pintables, cookie labels and goody bag. You can view them at our Sweetalmiraz blog; Oggy and the Cockroaches Birthday Party.

The deco is just simple, not fancy but the food is yummy...
