Me: She nak either of them jadi first Muslim woman in NASA-lah. Boleh tak She start doa diorang macam tu?
Me: She nak diorang tengok all the stars then diorang boleh bagitau kebesaran Allah.
Firdaus: Kebesaran Allah bukan sampai nak kena tengok stars baru tahu betapa besarnya Allah. Benda kecik pun boleh nampak dah kebesaran Allah.
Okay, you are right. But I still want to pray hard for this. And guess what? Without having any kind of milky way discussion or story telling session with my girls, yet, and a couple of days later, Iris had amazed me with this:
Iris: Mummy, boleh tak Iris nak get out dari Earth? Iris macam dah boring lah kat Earth. Mummy jangan-lah sedih, Iris pergi sekejap je, nanti Iris balik-lah.
I was so thrilled.
Me: Boleh sangat. Iris nak pergi dengan apa?
Iris: Iris pergi dengan rocketship. Bila dah boring dekat planet lain Iris balik-lah Earth balik.
Me: Boleh. (Oh, you so can go)
And we started learn about planets. Jupiter, Mercury, Pluto, Mars, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune. And she has a new name for her little sister-Iyra Alveenus. Well, that's not cool Iris, it's name-calling. But it's funny though.
Hey, don't you think it's simply a sign?
