I had a good weekend, I don't even feel like coming to work.
Honestly today I am so tired and half of my butt is cramp already due to running around Ikano and The Curve chasing after Husayn. I don't know what got into him yesterday but he was really testing my patience. Then I guess I got more paranoid because when I went to Brands Outlet at Ikano yesterday, one kid was missing and his mother was frantically searching for him. Initially, it was one makcik who suddenly tegur me and said "kesian orang tu..dia cari anak dia".
I was watching her making rounds in Brands Outlet while holding her newborn baby in her arms as she was shouting her son's name. I'm not really sure whether the father was there as well, but at the time she was searching for her son alone. And then suddenly she was screaming and somehow terduduk on the floor and that was when everybody inside the shop realised what was happening. I feel so kesian for her but then even me who was not holding a baby in my arms was having a hard time trying to keep up with my Husayn who was running merrily inside the shop. So I cannot imagine how hard it is to have to look after your son while holding the baby in her arms (just assuming she was holding the baby all the time because I did not see any stroller in sight)
I really hope she did find her son yesterday. And to all mothers and parents out there, please don't ever let your child wanders alone in shopping mall or park or wherever. You just don't know what kind of creeps out there always watching and waiting. It's better to hold your kid's hand even though he was throwing tantrum and crying. Well if you are too tired, just ask your husband to dukung him all the way lah like I did. Haha. Or else, like my mom said, just leave your kid at home and ask someone to jaga your kid for a while so you can have a peaceful grocery shopping.
Ok, now I feel like those public service ads. But really, I witnessed it yesterday, and you don't want it to happen to you too.
