My Inspiration



I used to be an avid fan.....I got inspired by Kate for managing 8 little kids...and I was heart-broken when they announced their divorce..:(

Handling 3 little gals..with a set of twins and my eldest are just 1 year apart required a lot of patient, I was literally struggling especially during their first 2 years..I went through series of misbehaving maids..mostly couldn't stand the stress of taking care 3 babies....just to share..I didn't leave my maid alone with my babies..my parents in law live nearby so we sent maid with babies to my parents in law's place..even that maid couldn't stand...*sigh!!*

On weekends, my cousins came by, luckily I have a few single cousins living in KL who didn't mind to sacrifice their weekends being my assistants at home. I remembered my late aunt.."hujung minggu tu pergi laa rumah along..tolong tengok2 kan kembar tu.." (I'm missing her terribly:()

I tried as much possible not to bother my in laws during weekends...for the whole 2 years I was deprived..no time for myself at all except attending to my little ones' demanding needs (they were very much clingy)....no gym, no fun outing..no ME time..no gals day out with friends..no movies night.. and the list goes on...


That's why now when people said to me.."wow u have so much energy and time to do stuffs..playing squash..gym..holdiday alone with hubby bla..blaa.....I would respond to them.."I was once deprived..now I have times...my little darlings are now more independent....I have to appreciate this"

Looking back..I wonder how I survived then..but I always believe God will not test you more than what you are capable...

So..Kate & Jon plus 8 was one of my inspiration then..I thought to myself..if she can handled 8 little kids..I only have 3..I surely can do better..

Bear in mind..then..Kate n Jon doesnt have many nannies as they have now after they got famous..so back then, the earlier days when the series just started..she was struggling as well "raising a set of twins and a set of sextuplets doesnt bring the best out of us, but we are a family.."

I love the way she handled the kids..she's very systematic compared to Duggar's family.."17 and counting" perhaps she used to be a nurse so I found she's very hygienic and organized..plus I find she's quite attractive too...(of course with the make-up n all..tummy tuck etc..etc..)


Too bad..the network has cancelled the series...but I have a lot to thank the series..it gives me inspiration to keep going..back then I do not have blog..otherwise I can share my struggles with all of you here..so now more on flash back experience:) at least I can say..I've been there..done that, right?

Moral of the story..FAMILY PLANNING IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!!!:)


until next time..take care

screamingmommy said...

Lady : yes, I cant blame them having 8 lil' kids at one time, very challenging..no time for themselves..i bet that's the reason the romance just died between them:(

diana sidek said...

my sis told me the reason was due to jon is having middle life crisis. xtau lah the actual reason apa..tp mmg betul kan, their kids are so comel!i still remember 1 siri ni yg diorg bwk pergi jumpa dentist. klakar sgt!

NZZ said...

I respect how she handles her kids, like u, I have 3 girls too, itu pun macam nak tercabut kepala i if handle them without the help of my helper...bole nangis tau..

screamingmommy said...

Diana : Ye lah man..famous and wife most of the time away bagi talk pasal raising multiple sets of twins, promoting books..ada pulak girls yg miang kan?:) but again..i think they just do not have time for themselves..so lama2 pudar sendiri love:(

NZZ : yess..i can imagine...esp kalau semua hampir sebaya..i sendiri not strong enough jaga kids ramai:(

Ella said...

anak2 dorg mmg adorable..geram sgt.

meby anak ramai sgt kot, then no quality time between them. kesian anak2.

screamingmommy said...

Erma : thnks beb for encouraging words:)..like u said laa susah masa diorg babies..now slowly i dah blh cope..tu pun sbb ada my inlaws dgn maid:)

Ayu : diorg divorce last year, kesian the kids laa..dah laa the mother asyik busy dgn talk..dgn dancing with the stars prog laa..all sort of activities..but mmg sad esp tgk masa the kids babies diorg struggle together.
anyway..u r so lucky to hv good maids..susah nak cari yg kekal sampai 10 yrs beb:)

Fiza : dah divorce:( yes, i also think partly due to the limelight..they can't be themselve kan?

screamingmommy said...

Ella : ye lah I think anak2 ramai mana dirg ada masa utk diri sendiri kan? kesian the kids laa..they are so adorable:)

CiKaYu said...

the romance just end like that..sediy kan. reason anak ramai, that's just a lame excuse. tapi nak buat camner dah takde jodoh. anak2 dia so adorable.

screamingmommy said...

Cik ayu : yesss..sedih sbb diorg tu kena went thru IVF to get children but ended up to divorce because of that:( plus stress being in the limelight n diorg choose to be in reality TV pun initially because of money..u know laa nak raise 8 kids...surely need lots of money kan?
