Filed under: MY DAUGHTER,PAST,PERSONAL — by noracassandra @ 7:14 pm


8 years passed! They passed so fast that I forgot to count! She is 8! I forgot how she looked like as a baby! I forgot a lot of what we went through together!

She was born in Kuwait… bad pregnancy, bad delivery and a very ill child! She never stopped crying! I never stopped thinking how I didn’t want to keep her at the first place! I kept asking why did I get this?! Isn’t what I have been through in the last 15 years enough suffering?

Well now looking back at that; I do think different! She is a great kid! Good girl! Nice, sweet and annoying sometimes! She was my way out of Kuwait! She is the main reason I never went through drugs and the season what kept out of trouble! She kept safer than I kept her safe! She helped me to grow up and be strong, and now I’m helping her!

Iida is 8 years today! Actually it was this early morning! I have to say I am lucky that I have had her! I am lucky I was never able to get rid of her! I am lucky that she forgives her short tempered, crazy mother and keeps saying; I love you mum!



  1. happy birthday to her.

    One day when she grows up, maybe you’ll tell her how she rejuvenated your life and that you owe her so much 🙂

  2. Happy birthday to your daughter, but please indulge my naive intuition, if you are only been married for four years, how come your daughter is 8 years old…?!

    Your daughter looks adorable by the way -_-

  5. HAMZA; Thank you dear! I will be telling her that and more for sure!

    OPTICAL_ILLUSION; I’m not sure if you trying to be naïve or are you really! I just simply had sex, got pregnant and had a child at the age of 20-21! I met my husband 4 years ago moved in with him and got married just 2 years ago! I know you might be from different culture, but in Europe women who don’t have husbands or men are allowed to have children by their own! And it’s neither 3eeb nor 7aram here! I do respect your culture, but it is really not so nice feeling when some people in Kuwait used question and disrespect my believes and culture, even though I know you don’t mean to do such thing! When you ask, it seems that that’s what you’re doing! Thank you dear for your comment! 🙂

    EMMI; Kisses back at you!!!! 😉

    DALOOM; Thank you! If she tries to be Shy6oona, she’ll be getting into real trouble! 😀

  7. I’m quite aware what people do in Europe, and in the States, but even in the States that is a legitimate question to ask. Again my naïve intuition raises this question, if your father is Kuwaiti, which means genetically you are half Kuwaiti, how come culturally you are fully Fin. From what I read in your blog, you lived most of your life in Kuwait, where was your father in all of this. And from the apparent strong Arabic features of your daughter, where is here biological father in all of this, and does he have any role in raising her?

    Once again please excuse my somewhat naïve intrusion into your comment box, and rest assure I’m not raising judgment, I’m just rather curious.

    Have a wonderful day.
