Happy Father's Day - Daddy's Dearest Contest

It is 2.22 a.m. and the house is quiet, so I finally could write something with a clear head. This is something that I have been meaning to write for quite some time now, and with Father's Day approaching around the corner, and my online friend Isabelle is holding a Father's Day Blog Entry contest, I guess this is as best time as any. The contest is to show appreciation to all fathers. I'm not really putting high hopes about winning, seeing the responses and entries from others, but whether this piece wins the prize or not, I would've written it anyway even if I wasn't entering. What's important is that it is an honest piece of writing from me to Aisyah's Dad. But since the contest is on, I might as well try right? Who knows if we're lucky enough to bag something.. hehe.. So here goes...

Let me just clear the contest details first:

How to participate?

Just follow the steps below and the prizes could be yours!

1. Add Isabelle...frankly in your blogroll@bloglist and become my follower. (DONE)

2. Write a short entry in your blog about this contest (it could be in Bahasa Melayu or English - up to you) and put up the Daddy's Dearest banner. (DONE)

3. Upload a creative/dramatic photo of the father with son/daughter and explain why do you think your picture is unique. (DONE)

4. Include a link back to this blog and this contest in the entry (DONE)

5. Tell me about your entry by leaving a comment here with the link to the entry (DONE)


Aisyah & Ayah

This photo was snapped when we went on a trip as a family to a small fishing village, a few days before Aisyah turned one year old, which coincidentally, is two days before Father's Day. I was performing my Solat at the time, somewhere behind some bushes, and Hubs (my Husband) was taking care of Aisyah by reading her favorite book to her. It was taken with a friend's camera who thought the moment was priceless.

Thers's nothing out-of-the-ordinary or outrageously unique about this picture, but I'd thought that this pic captures well about Hubs' sacrifices and what a great dad he is to Aisyah. I mean, how many husbands are willing or crazy enough to put their careers on hold just so that their wives can make their dreams come true? How many are there out there who can hold their heads up high and proudly explain to others that they are 'full-time house-husbands', whenever asked about their current occupation?

How many Dads know their daughters best, even more so than the mothers, sometimes (hard to admit, but yes, sometimes it does feel that way, what can I expect as Hubs is spending 24/7 looking after Aisyah, as opposed to moi, which is, erm, embarrassingly less than that on a week day). How many Dads can expertly change a diaper without cringing, bathe their baby effortlessly, and doll their baby up real pretty in less than twenty minutes on average? How many Dads know how to handle frozen EBM with such care, and heat the breast milk until just at the right temperature to be served to their darling precious whilst the Mommy is out studying hard? Just writing this makes me want to go and kiss him on the forehead and whisper 'Thank You for everything' - he is currently asleep on the couch with the TV on. Typical, but I love him this much more :P

So, on Father's Day, I would like to dedicate this entry to Hubs, send him a big, fat, Happy Father's Day wish, and thank God for giving me the best husband a wife could ever have wished for. I'm not good with words, and I am never a serious person to begin with, so saying this out aloud to him is hard for me, but I hope he knows how much I am deeply touched about he's done for the family, and pray that all good things come his way.

Oh, and I'm sure if Aisyah can already speak she'll say, 'My Ayah is the bestest Daddy in the whole, wide, world. I LOVE YOU AYAH!'

Even if I don't win this contest, it's okay. I've bagged the best daddy for Aisyah, and that's what's more important :)

Yes, we love you, Ayah! Happy Father's Day!

Every morning I wake up and see,
The most handsome man lying next to me.

He's the one I cherish and love,
A blessing sent from Heaven above.

I will love him as a faithful wife should,
And do everything for him I could.

I would let him know everyday,
That I love him more than words can say.

For the baby that we have together,
And the love for God in each other.

It will keep our love for each other strong,
And the Lord will guide us away from all wrong.

I would also like to take this opprtunity to wish 'Happy Father's Day' to my Dad. I never told him this personally, but I want him to know that he has always been my inspiration in life. I am inspired by him even more so now, especially when the going gets tough with this PhD. But I will always remind myself that if my own Dad could do it at age forty with three adolescent teenagers (with attitudes) in tow, living on allowances so ridiculously small during those days and 1001 other challenges, why not me? Hopefully this 'like-father-like-daughter' thing is true!

Happy Father's Day to All you fathers out there too!
