Today I am so happy to share the mommy feelings of my dear friend Eva Fatmawaty of Ishlahii. She became friend with me recently through blogging. But I feel she’s being my friend for so many years. That much comfort I have with her. Thanks dear Fatma for so friendly to share your thoughts for me. She is a happy mother of 6 years old son. She is a fulltime Mom, a blogger, and a working home mom. She has graduated from Islamic Institute (2002) and from Information Management (2004). Her interests are writing, reading, graphic design and all about art.
