*longgg sigh* Ahh married life, a new milestone in our lives! Its truly a bliss! Its definitely a whole new adventure! but so far so good its going great! 😀 Shukr! We just settled into our new home and its lovely! At first I wasn’t, even though I had graduated as a CA. Asad insists that I don’t have to work, he keeps on telling me not to worry and he would pay the bills and provide for us. As sweet as that is, I feel I just wouldn’t be able to be every single day at home, I guess I could try out manny hobbies such as sewing and things like that but I did study and I really wanna work. It just keeps me on the go and I kinda enjoy what I do. Asad was happy with my decision as long as I was happy… So now Mondays to Fridays, after Asad and I had some breakfast, we’d both leave for work…he works in his Uncle’s company, which is about half and hour away from home, but he didn’t mind the traveling, I guess it wasn’t too bad. After my days recording transactions in books, I’d get home and make supper for the two of us. Asad usually comes home a little later after I do. He’d occasionally walk in through the door with a bunch of pretty flowers/roses or a box a chocolates! And that always made me smile! Even if I’m having a reallly bad day, Asad would turn it around in a matter of seconds!! 😀 We often meet with our fellow couples and at least once a week we’d have supper all together, each of us having turns to host! I guess we’d always be there for each other no matter what! Our cute little familia #TogetherForever
**The day I told Asad**
I was at work and wasn’t feeling too well…I’ve been feeling like this for the past couple of days and so I decided to leave work early and something just made me have this hunch to go to the hospital…I wanted to phone Asad , but then i realised that he was probably still in his interview. Gosh i hope it goes well, he’s been stressing all week about it! Eventually I went to my doctor feeling a little nervous yet kinda excited. She informed me that I am going to be a mother! Shukr Alhamdulillah! I was soo overjoyed!! I reallly wanted to call Asad right there on the spot and tell him the good news, but then I also wanted it to be a surprise 😀 I left the hospital with an envelope with the scans in my hand and a huge smile on my face!!!! I quickly got home and started preparing supper…I put the envelope with the scans in Asad’s cupboard…he definitely won’t miss it!!! Welll he better not!!! After a little while,I heard Asad’s car come up the drive way. A whole lot of butterflies started fluttering about inside my tummy! And also in my little bump!! (if that’s even possible!!) Asad walked into the house and gave me a kiss on my cheek …
I just stood there and stared !! He wore a suit which fitted him perfectly , he looked dashing!
Asad : Salaams, darling 😀
Me: W.salaams Asad!! How are you ?? How was your day ?? How did the interview go??
Asad : Ooh soo many questions ! 😉 i’m okay, my day was…hmm…the interview was…hmmm…lets just say the best part of it is getting to come home to my lovely wife !!
Me: Awww. Sorry Asad ( giving him a hug) don’t worry about it , there’ll be plenty more 😉 Ooh and by the way, u look amazing in that suit !!!
Asad : Why, thanks darling …but speaking of which , i think i’m gonna go change and freshen up… (Giving me a kiss before going upstairs )
I kinda let out a little giggle and tried to keep my smile in the whole time!! He did have a rather curious look on his face though…
I quickly laid the dinner table and just then i hear Asad’s sweet voice…
Asad: Ummm Attiya….is this what I think it is ?? (i heard his footsteps coming down the stairs ..i could see a cute smile coming out which he kinda tried to hide for some reason )
He came downstairs and still had that cute half smile on…he held up the envelope and he just couldn’t keep that smile in…until finally it came out!!!
Me: Surprise !!! 😀
He quickly came over to me and pulled me into a hug!! We made shukr and then told our parents and everyone ..they were also soo thrilled !! The one day the girls and I kinda had a baby shower! Lol it was like a 4 in 1!!! We all had loads of fun and received cute pressies ! 😀 Months have flown by and i’m almost reaching the end of my pregnancy!! Asad and i kinda wanted it to be a surprise and so on the shopping trips i’ve only been buying neutral coloured clothes!!!
Alhamdulillah i’ve given birth to a son, who resembles quite a lot like his father!!! 😀
I woke up with a slight pain in my stomach and I was a little sleepy. I sat up and realized I was still lying in the hospital bed. And then it alllll sunk in!!! 😀 It was a couple of hours after I had given birth…
Zay: Heyy Salaams beautiful!! How you doing?? You okay?? (Zay was sitting on a chair next to the bed, he was still holding my hand)
Me: Yeah, yeah I’m doing okay 🙂 woah, how are you?? You look exhausted? Please tell me you went home to rest a little??
Zay: I wanted to be here when you woke up, and besides I wouldn’t ever leave the two most special people, to me, alone just like that? :p
Me: Speaking of which, I’m dyinggg to see our little cutie pie!! 😀 Where is she??
Zay: She’s here, the nurses were busy cleaning her up and that…lemme go see if they’re done 😉
Me: Okay, thanxx Zay (giving him a kiss on the cheek)
After a few minutes later I see Zaydaan walking into the room, carrying our daughter!! Awww I could see he was still a little nervous yet kinda excited! He gave her to me and I held our little bundle of joy in my arms and smiled!
Zay: Beautiful, just like her mum!!
Our parents and the girls and everyone came to visit. Eventually after a day or two I was discharged from hospital and went home. Shukr things are okay, the aqeeqah went off nicely too! Zaydaan and I both loved the name Aaliyah, and so we named her Aaliyah 🙂 I was still on my maternity leave and Zaydaan was at work. He should be home around 17:00… It was about 15:00 and I was walking up and down the room, making Aaliyah sleep! She was such an energetic baby, always keeping Zaydaan and I on the tips of our toes!! Aaliyah fell asleep and I put her down on the bed. She looked so sweet when she was sleeping. I looked at her and smiled and started thinking, remembering memories…
***Flashback to 1 year ago***
I came home from work quite early, put my keys down and went straight to the freezer and grabbed a tub of Magnum ice-cream and a spoon! I was having a reallly bad day!!! Everything was just going wrong! I sat on the bench in the garden and ate my ice-cream… After a while I heard Zaydaan come home.
Zaydaan: Salaams Beautiful!! I’m homee!…………….Saffiya??
I didn’t really say anything…
Zaydaan: (coming into the garden) Here you aree!
Me: Salaams Zay (giving him a kiss on the cheek)
Zay: Hmm…what’s wrong??
Zay: Yesss I can tell when there’s something wrong!! And plus you eating vanilla ice-cream and that’s you’re “something’s wrong ice-cream”
Me: “something’s wrong ice-cream” ??
Zay: Yess and besides you can’t be sad when you’re eating ice cream :p …soo you wanna tell me what’s wrong Saffs?? (Taking my hand in his)
Me: Zay…Zaydaaan! You’re never gonna be a father!!……an…and I’m never gonna be a mother!! We’re never gonna be parents!! (And I burst into tears!!!)
Zay: Saffiyaaa! Baby, its okay! (Pulling me into a hugee hug!)
Me: Really Zaydaan!?!? “Baby” ??!?
Zay: Haha oops too soon Saffs??
Me: Hmmm!!! Maybe just a little!!! (Trying to be as sarcastic as possible)
Zay: (tucking a few strands of hair behind my ear) Heyy Saffs, its..its okay. Don’t stress about it, I mean it would be amazing to have a mini-you, or a mini-me but this is allll part of Allah’s plan and if something is meant to be it will be, Allah knows best and He is the best of planners…
Me: Hmm…yeahh, that is so true Zay…
Zay: Relax beautiful, everything will work out one day! Insha Allah. Maybe now’s just not the time… (Giving me a kiss on my forehead)
I looked at Zaydaan and smiled and realised at how well he’s taking it all and gosh look at me!! I’m a mess!! I could see he was a little upset but hey, he has every right to be! He’s definitely my pillar of strength and I’m so grateful for him!!!
Saffiya was really upset and of course I was too but I tried to hide it from her, I couldn’t see her any more upset! Its been a couple of weeks after that day but then in a split of a second our lives changed forever!! I came home from work and just as I walked into the house I saw Saffiya standing there with a hugee smile on her face!!! I had a feeling and automatically started smiling!!
Saffiya: Zaydaan… (She looked down at her stomach) 😀
Me: Saffiya!!! Hahaha I loveee you!!!!!! (I gave her a hug and spun her around!!! Gosh I don’t think I’ve everr everr been so happy in my life!! I mean I get to spend the rest of my life with the one person who means the world to me! And now we’re starting a family!! I just can’t describe it all!! )
Saffs: I love you tooo Zaydaan!!!
We were so overwhelmed!! Our parents came for supper and we told them the good news! They were also so happy, our mothers were in tears!! Shukr Alhamdulillah!!!
So far so good, besides the pains now and then, the check-ups have been going well and oooh baby shopping has been quite exciting! 😀 These 9 months flew like the wind! Hai shame! I feel so bad, Zaydaan is always giving me massages or bringing me this or doing that!! He’s even taken on cooking supper some days!!! And eish…Zaydaan and the kitchen aren’t the best of friends!!!
Me: Soo Zay…how was work??
Zay: Hmmm…it was okayy, a little busy!
Me: Awww sorryy (giving him a kiss on the cheek)
Zay: But hey at least tomorrow’s Friday!!
He got up to go get something from the room…
Me: Zaydaaaan, honey?? (Reaching for my glass)
Zay: More orange juice Saffs??
Me: Pretttyy please??
The only thing I’ve been craving is orange juice!!! Yes orange juice! Lol its soo weird!! Zaydaan keeps on joking that our baby is gonna look like an orange!! Gosh!
Zay: There you go, beautiful….(Handing me the glass full of citrusy liquid!!)
Me: Hmmm “beautiful”??? I feel and not to mention look like a fat elephant!!!
Zay: Wellll…you’re a beautiful fat elephant!! 😀
Me: Haha ouch!!! (Throwing a pillow at him!!)
Zay: I love you tooo Saffs!!!
It was in the middle of the night when I suddenly woke up and had “that” feeling!!
Me: Zaydaan! Zaydaaaan!! (Shaking him)
Zay: Huh? Woah, what happened?? Saffs you okay?? (That cute sleepy voice never gets old!!!)
Me: Zaydaan breatheee…I’m okay…but I think its time…
Zay: (quickly getting out of bed and grabbing my bags) All ready beautiful??
Me: (smiling at him) All ready!!!
We got to the hospital and it was about 2a.m!! The doctor came and saw me and shame she was really sweet…she said that I was able to give normal birth and that a c-section wasn’t necessary… Shukr after all the screams and squeezing the life out of Zaydaan’s hand, everything went okay, and we were smiling over the new addition to the start of our family!!! 😀

Naazeef walked to the table got my phone and put it in my hand…
Naazeef : I’m on speed dial, phone me if ANYTHING happens please, even if u feel dizzy or something….
Me : Okay THANKs !!!
I got into my car and drove to CLICKS first, but as I was about to go out of the car but I had a sharp pain in my back and contractions…

Naazeef held my hand and we walked and walked with my screams because of the contractions, Naazeef looked soo angry that we had to walk…..Naazeef picked me up and then ran , we reached the hospital, and the nurses put me in a bed …
Me : Naazeef , I love u my handsome husband…

Me : Thanks but my husband carried me half way…
The nurse : Omw ! What a couple, yoh a saga hey !

The nurse: So I think u’ll be able to give a normal birth..let’s do this..
I grabbed Naazeef’s arm, he kissed my forehead..and before I knew it Shukr I saw my son, my little Naazeef, the apple of my eye..he was in Naazeef’s arms…
Naazeef : He has ur hair, and ur dimples…my blue eyes though :p
Me : (breathing) Can I carry him…
Naazeef put him in my arms..
Me : (looking at the baby) So u the one that was kicking me hey ? But how could I be mad at a cute thing like u ? I love u , u know that ?
The nurse : He’s one lucky child to have parents like u 2…
The nurse took him away for a while , just to clean him up…
Naazeef : (putting his hand on my forehead) Are u okay ?
Me : (smile) I’m okay, a bit tired..
Naazeef : U were very brave hey love..
Me : I couldn’t have done it without u

Naazeef : I’m sorry that you had to walk, it will haunt me for the rest of my life..
Me : No,no…I liked it, it was adventurous I mean we have a whole lot of stories to tell our children, grandchildren lol , it also made my labour easy handsome..
Naazeef : (laughing) u crazzy ..
Me : Could u come closer ?
Naazeef smiled and bent closer to me,
I kissed his cheek…he smiled and hugged me…just then my mum and everyone else walked in,hugging me and worrying about me, I told them everything and they hugged me again..
My dad : My brave girl, luckily Naazeef carried u also..
Me : Yeah, he’s my hero…
Just then our baby came into the room…Naazeef gave Athaan and Iqaamah in his ears and then we gave rubbed a piece of a date on his gums..
*3 days later*
Finally our baby and I are back at home now…we named our little boy Zain..Naazeef and I would play for hours with him, and Saff’s ,Han and Att’s would stop by and they’d play with him also…Zain had Naazeef’s blue eyes it was beyond adorable, and we’d take Zain everywhere with us, we were really proud parents..
His aqeeqah went also nicely shukr..
* 4 months later*
Well now I’m a bit of a stay at home kinda mum just till my little baby boy a miniature Naazeef grows up, Zain…..he’s a real cutie and everyone says his going to be a heart breaker when his older…
Saf’s and Zay have a one year old child, her name is Aaliyah…, Han and Huzi have an 18 month old baby , her name is Hanifa , Att’s and Asad have a little boy his 11 months old his name is Hamad…
One day Naazeef was sitting on our couch with Zain sleeping in his arms , he was playing playstation..I scooted over to him and he stopped the game and put his arm over me…
Naazeef : U okay love ?…
Me : I’m okay. U okay?
Naazeef : I could never be better..
I put my hand on his face and kissed his cheek…
Everyday Saff’s ,Att’s , Han and I would watch our little ones grow…they became our life..along with our husbands…
Raees and Sabi got married 😀 ..they happy in L.A…Nabeel and Zahra are living the dream in London with Sahl and Suhail..
Naazeef was still mad at his dad though but sometimes they’d get along , some things would never change between them…Naaz and Mo are still struggling with Aaz and Tasneem…but lol they see each other secretly…
Saff’s, Han, Att’s and I were sitting in our tree house today…
Me : Omw…dudes..this is where our story started !! Us in the tree house, complaining about this town…
Att’s : U mean Han complaining and we agreeing ?
Me : Hahaha yeah..
Saff’s : Look where we are today ..
Han : Married, have kids, still living in this crappy town..
Me : Haha yeah , u know what’s weird ? People complain about towns like ours, but they never ever move ..because if they did move, they’d miss that town too much..because without them , that town is just a town…
Han : Tasqu , u mean us right ?
Me : (laughing) Basically…
Saff’s : Lol Tasqu , u right…we started at this tree house and here we are …
Att’s : So u saying this is where our story ends too ?
Me : Nehh, We farm town girls can’t just end our story here…our story is still gonna go on…its just too much happiness to describe to anyone..
Han wrote something down…
Me : Whatcha writing ?
Han : (handing me a book) That’s the end of our diary..
Saff’s : Our diary ???
Han : Yeah , I kinda wrote our story down…
Att’s : What do u mean ?
Han : From us in this tree house when we were opening our school reports till now…and I ended it with Tasqu’s lines “We farm town girls can’t just end our story here…our story is still gonna go on , its just too much happiness to describe to anyone…”
Me : Omw !!! Han !!
Att’s : Only u’d do something like that we hugged each other…
Just then we saw our husbands standing by the tree..
Huzi , Zay, Asad and I left our kiddies by their granny’s and then we sat out to look for our wives, we went to their tree house and found them sitting there hugging..
Me : Nice hideout love
They got down from the tree house and we hugged them…
I looked into Tasqeen’s, hazel eyes and I immediately started to fall in love with her all over again….I tried not to blush , she held me hand and we walked to the car….
Han , Att’s , Saff’s and Tasqeen looked at each other before we got into our cars…
Tasqeen : Diary of Farm town Girls ?
Han : Diary of Farm town Girls.
Saff’s : Diary of Farm town Girls.
Att’s : Diary of Farm town Girls !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Obviously us guys were confused :|…
I looked at Tasqeen, my wife , who still made me blush up to today, she was smiling…I’m sure u guys are too after reading this last post….
