I love to bring my kids to places they could play, learn and enhance their skills. Especially for Fahry because we want him to utilize his remaining body parts (gilo punya statement). His right leg muscles shows some delays compared to his left ones. It could be because he likes to use his left ones more.
So we brought him to swim and enroll in swimming class (organized by his nursery). Fahry is a good swimmer 🙂 Not that he knows how to swim, but he’s a brave one, when we selam-selam he didn’t fret at all, instead enjoy each second of being in the pool. Sampai takmau naik.
Hafiy, as well, shows interest being surrounded by water. Even though that was his first time, but he learned so well.
Now that I can see Fahry has bigger determination to overcome his disability. He likes to kick the balls, go up the stairs, go under the table, and play slide. But he still afraid of being swung. Gayat, perhaps 😉 Coz he’s not used to buaian since he was baby.
Now we are waiting for his new prosthesis. *excited!*
Fahry is a very positive baby. When someone asks him “Which one is your foot?” He’ll points to the amputated side. He maybe too small to understand, but he’s almost 2. I’m sure he’s only delay in his physical development, not his brain. Fahry could be offended when outsiders talk about his special fingers, as what happened 2 months ago. But I don’t want this to traumatize him. Just let those people talking, they are not our counterparts, they are not our bosses, even they have nothing to do with our life pun 😉
I pray that life would be easier for Fahry. As of now, everybody likes him because he is an attractive kid, with his bright eyes and smile. I want him to be somebody, as not everyone knows, lots of Islamic scholars and tabi’en are disabled, e.g. the Guru of Imam Malik. His name is Abdul Rahman bin Hurmuz al-A’raj, had physical disability on his legs, thus he got the name, Al-A’raj meaning ‘si tempang’ in Arabic. In fact there are lots of disabled scholars got their calling names for their disabilities. It never to put them down, but to tell other normal people that even disables could do this and that, they should able to do better.
This must be a great challenge for Hafiy. He has no physical disability, hence he must prove that he could be better. So I have to put both of them in the same standard so that they would strive to be the best no matter who they are 😉 That’s what every mom wants kan?
