Are You Ready?

Hello all..
The question in the above title is what I have been asking myself for the past week. Why? Because Ramadhan is just around the bend. Tomorrow, actually. I am a bit concerned in facing this Holy Month.

For one thing, this is the first time I will be fasting as a mama. Before this, I can just wake up at the last possible second and gulp down an oat drink. Aaaaahhh... Done. Go back to sleep. Now with Sophie changing her sleeping and feeding habits, it is a bit more challenging. On one hand, Sophie can be my alarm as she wakes up at about 4am to be fed and play flip over on her belly.

On the other hand being aware of the time while fighting off sleepiness and feeding Sophie/keeping an eye on her because I'm scared of leaving her alone while she is on her belly is quite a challenge. Then there is facing the day with lack of sleep and food. I am worried that I won't be able to concentrate on my work.

I hope I don't sound like I am complaining. I love being a mama, more so with such a happy baby as Sophie. Just expressing my concern whether I will be able to overcome these challenges or not during this Ramadhan. I guess this is my Jihad. Afterall, Prophet Muhammad PBUH had even gone to war (to protect his people and land) during the month of Ramadhan. Rilek jak pun kan..

I want to take this opportunity to wish all my Muslim readers Happy Ramadhan. May we be able to gain as much Pahala (good graces) as we can during this fasting month. Amin...
