Father & Son...

Aida and her mum are in Libya since Sunday due to the death of a close relative of my wife, it was a rush decision, we decided that Aida should go with her to keep her company, so we took a week off her school and next week is half term anyway, they will be away for 2 weeks.
Amir, my lovely little boy is staying with me, he did ask why he was not going to Libya and I told him that they were going to attend a funeral which means a sad event not a holiday, he accepted that and actually was happy to stay with me.
I was a bit worried that he might get upset, especially that he has to go to school while his sister is away, he actually exceeded my expectations of him, MashaAllah, I know it has been only 4 days but he has been so good that I can not describe it, I am enjoying my time with him, I even started playing games on the Wii console with him, something I have never done before as I am really rubbish at video games and tend not to play them, of course he is showing me what to do and how to do it, how do kids learn all these complicated moves?? I am still rubbish at games but he is teaching me.
He had a treat on Sunday when we went to watch Bolt in 3D, it was funny and the graphics were really amazing.
My only problem with him is actually food, I am a bad cook and can hardly cook anything so it has been lots of takeaways which is getting boring, maybe I should try and make something but what if he doesn't eat it :o)
All I can say is Allah bless Amir, he has been as good as gold and he is filling my life with his wicked jokes, laughter, energy and noise, lovely :o)

My deepest condolences to your mrs.......

It seems everybody is dying away here in our wonderland !

Nevertheless many bad situations are made so better ones take place. In this case the bonding of you and Amir and also
good for Aida to be with her mum as well,so she learns a bit about our traditions be they good or bad. That's the price we pay for loving our country!

About food habibi cant you even do a simple omlette with fries and salad??Ask Amir what he likes and work on it,let him join you in the making of whatever you create together,even if its a mess and tastes horrible you'd have a good laugh !If you need any simple recipes I'll be more than willing to send you. I'll email you my email and you can send...

al baqaa lillah.

Hope that you will have even more fun through the next days with your son. Such strange situations show a lot of things that are not clear in the daily life. Somethings we forget to see in the daily routine.

Salam Anglo-Libyan,
My regards to Mrs. Anglo-Libyan and family. May Allah keep her and Aida well during their travels.

What an awesome time for you and Amir. It sounds like the male bonding time is going fantastic. You know, perhaps Amir could whip something tasty up in the kitchen if given the task. :0) I let Amira help with doing dinner often---and she makes some crazy stuff, but seeing her excitement and joy while doing it makes it taste pretty good.

Every parent should spend one day with one of the kids with out the siblings around on a regular basis. You learn alot from them, they are happy to have your full attention with out competing with others or fighting, you build a special bond with them and the child will speak freely and also to know what their needs are.

Father spending time with a daughter is very important because it gives them sense of security that a daughter can always go to her parents for help in future specially in case of an abusive marriage ever occurs.

This song always reminds my relationship with my father, it was rocky for the first 24 years of my life, then appreciated him more and also learned to forgive. This song came out when I was a teenager in Lebanon.

Keep the good work with your kids, which I know you do. Are your kids still iceskating :-)
