A 1 year old Po-Po

This Sweet Po (aka Crazy Naughty Po-Po aka my Baby from Arabie) is going to be 1 year old this week! Time FLIES!

I saw my friend's newborn today and OMG the difference. Actually, my baby is not a baby anymore at all. He's a toddler flat out. He's a handful of a toddler too, always trying to find something naughty to do like:

- trying to flush a roll of t.p.
- throwing diapers in the bath
- putting toys in the garbage
- climbing onto the couch
- moving my dining chairs and any small furniture
- climbing into my recycling bin
- throwing any folded clothes onto the floor
- emptying whole boxes of tissues
- climbing on top of a box to go scratch the TV
- turning on the dishwasher
- hanging off the oven door to open it

But HIS FACE!!!!! <3 p="p">
I'm in love.

Can anyone tell that my daughter ALSO is pretty naughty herself

He was planning his next move (proceeded to go around the bed to the other side to grab a container and stuff the card he had in his hand (not shown) into it)

Raking leaves, and no, the small one for kids is NOT the same

Found him in my recycling bin, half emptied

By the way, I'm at 249 followers on here and I'm so excited that I'm nearing 250. :) It's really awesome and I've had such a great time on this blog even if I'm low on Islam-related inspiration lately. It has really helped me grow and learn over the past... 3 or 4 years? Thanks again everyone. And if you read this and are not a subber, make my day PLEASE!

Happy and Blessed EID to all - We Bought a Goat

Happy EID to everyone. May the mercy and blessings of God be on you.

Seems we bought a goat in Egypt for EID. Poor thing wil be sacrificed tomorrow but I feel good knowing that 2/3 of it will be going to poor people who cannot afford to eat meat regularly. I hope they have a really nice, meaty meal on this special day. :)

It's my first time owning such a big animal. Kind of cool. I went to bring my mother in law's goat to the butcher on Eid of 6 years ago while I was in Egypt and it's a good thing I didn't meet him earlier because it was not especially fun to see him getting killed, blood flowing in the streets. It was not as bad as the person who made his cow get hauled up the stairs to the 3rd floor so it could be sacrificed in front of her condo... We couldn't walk down the stairs for a little while (unless we didn't mind blood on our shoes).

Anywho, I love all of you guys, Muslim and not, practicing or not. Be good, have good intentions in all that you do. Try to have love for others, mercy on others and try to keep away from negativity. My advice to me that I pass on to you!

Happy Eid!
