My Daughter Had a Nightmare

A video posted by illy ariffin (@illyariffin) on

Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

The tittle says it all, my daughter had a nightmare. Yes, she just scream in the middle of the night pointing finger while her eyes closed saying “nakkkkkkkk… nakkkkkkkkkkk”.  She is 1 year and 10 months by now, I have no idea if it normal for her to have a nightmare. I am very curious. My daughter physical and mental well being is supremely important to me and I just dont know why I felt like I need to jump into her dream (while riding a magical dolphin and having some rainbow on the background ofcoz) and kick the hell out of the monster that have been bugging her sleep. 




If it is up to me, I’ll blow bubbles in her dream just to make her smile. But it is not really possible GOSH…  I hate this feeling.  So, I spoke to her dad/my hubby.

Me : You.. I rasa sofea ni macam ada gaduh dengan kawan lah kat sekolah. Dia mengigau cakap “nakk… nak….” camna nak buat yer?

Hubby :  hurm.. okay. (he have no idea how to respond to that I guess)

Me : Esok, I nak tanya cikgu dia lah.

Hubby : hurm.. okay. (basically that is his reponse to anything I said. like super standard haha)

So, the next day while dropping her off at the playschool. I tried to ask her teacher. It is quite tricky than I thought it could be. I dont want to be those fussy mum who likes to ask millions of question. I normally just send her and say thanks to the teacher for taking care of her while I have to work. But, the mother protective mood in me is just activated. I mean, I have to find out what is wrong right??  (this is the part where you nod, as I kinda need some support)


Okay, I finally had some courage to talk to her teacher. So this is how it goes : -

Me : Hi Cikgu (insert a big smile) Sofea okay ke berkawan kat school?

Cikgu : Okay, dia pandai jaga diri. Dia garang. Kalau orang kacau dia, dia balas balik.

Me : owh yer ker? okay bagus.. Happy to know. Bye!

Yes I normally just keep the chat as minimum as possible. Remember I dont want to be the crazy fussy mum?? hahaha Anyway, I am never more PROUD of my daughter! Like seriously she knows how to take care of herself at 1 year and 10 months.  I just felt like I need to celebrate!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am super happy that she knows how to take care of herself. I mean.. I do know that I wont be around with her 24/77 to protect her and to love her up till she is old. I do understand how to world works and I kid you not sometime it gave me nightmare. Knowing that she able to handle her baby cat fight, it gave some feeling of peace to me.

So ya, that’s it today. Just like to share document this and hopefully, one day as  she grows up and if this blog is still up and running by then. I want her to know how proud I am of her and how much I love her.
