Do you want to hear a good tidings, I spent a half day working as a baby sitter for Aya.
My mother asked us (I and najma) to take care of Aya while she and my sister go for shopping. We spent 4 hours as baby sitter.The first two hours I took care of Aya, and the other two hours was najma's turn. Najma wanted the first two hours for her but she changed her mind after I told her that she might change her diaper and feed her milk, that's work, I could get the first two ours.
Aya was quite and nice, she didn't cry and she looked happy with me, I am sure from that. I was playing with her, I searchsd in the internet and found songs for children, she amused listened to them.
Atthe night, our neighbour (the mother) came to our house with her son, who is 4 or 5 years old. He was sick and needs injection, so my father had to inject him. The boy began to cry after that, while Aya began to laugh. I don't know why she did that, is she understood what happened and laughed at him? I don't know. Anyway my sister asked him to stop crying and if he still doing that the american soldiers will laugh at him. He said " Let them laugh at me, let them kill me, let them cut my head, I don't mind, let them did what they want to". I joined Aya and began to laugh too.
When we were a children my father refuses to give us injections by himself, whem my cousins were children, they were avoided my father when he went to their house, and they were little afraid from him because he injected them when they were sick. For that my father refuses, to inject any one from us, not to make us hate him. He didn't know that we will still love him whatever he did.
Yesterday one of my friend in the primary school who I didn't seen her from 9 years ago called me. It was really a surprise to me that she still save my number and she still remember me after all these years. I told her that I am aunt now, and she said that she have a niece too.
