Majaalis, Panic Attacks, and Turkish Delight

January 22, 2006

Shaykh Ibrahimi at MajlisWe went to the Zainabia today for Majlis. It was given by a Shaykh named Ibrahimi (don’t know his full name, sorry). His talk was very good in that it included the children. They were very much into it, which differs from a lot of majaalis.

Zahra was OK for a while, but when everyone got up to start eating and kids playing, she was ready to go. Nothing we did could calm her. As soon as we got into the car, she asked for cake and acted like nothing had happened. I think she’s inherited some of what I might call my “agoraphobia” (for lack of a better term).

We then went to the store, bought some halal meat, and got some Turkish Delight. That made everything better, even though Zahra wouldn’t try it.

Now, she’s watching Dora the Explorer, again.

  1. Hehehe I had to chuckle as ‘Dora the Explorer’ is my 2 year old’s absolute *favourite* show. We bowed to consumerism and bought her a Dora bedcover and a few assorted toys as she is absolutely Dora mad. I don’t know what it is about Dora but no other shows come even close.
