My Wedding Band March 6, 2007

Posted by Zara's Mama in language, myself, Zara.

Since Zara was born, my knuckles became bigger and I could not put on my wedding band any longer. Of course my knuckles did not miraculously shrunk after Zaria’s birth, no matter how much I wish for. I can’t resize my ring since the jeweller we bought the ring from can’t do it as the ring was imported from New Zealand. I asked Daddy to get me a new ring for this reason, and he agreed, giving me a RM400 budget. Hence, the hunt began.

Gold prices have gone up 100% since we got married 9years ago. His RM400 budget probably could get me a ring as thick as a wire band, so I just ignored his set budget. Our original ring was a platinum + 750 gold band. What used to cost us RM750, now it’s going for around RM2000. I was contemplating whether to go for one which is the same design as ours, or go for one which is totally different. It was a long hunt and I’d been dragging Zara along visiting jewelry shops.

Last Saturday, we finally made the purchase, I got myself a puny small eternity ring instead.


On Sunday morning, upon seeing the ring on my finger, Zara commented, “Mummy buy (bought) mummy’s ring already.”
I responded, “Yeah. Zara leh? Zara got ring or not?
Zara replied, “No. I have no ring. When I big girl already, I get married. Then I get pregnant. Then when doctor take baby out already, I buy ring.”

Let’s hope she stick to the get-married-then-get-pregnant part, the ring can come earlier I don’t mind.

Nice! Having babies indeed have its privileges…and Zara is learning fast!

5. domestic rat - March 6, 2007

You put me to shame. I don’t even wear my wedding band anymore, partly cos I’m not a ring person and with the housework I do everyday, I cant imagine putting it on and taking off every minute!

6. babykhong - March 6, 2007

That’s a nice ring. Simple yet nice. I didn’t manage to put on my wedding ring since I got pregnant with Brae until now. Daddykhong said can resize wor but I doubt it.

10. dancing queen - March 6, 2007

Same here – can’t wear my wedding ring anymore. And recently, hubby lost his ring, so we’re planning to get a new pair. BTW, how much would yours cost, if you don’t mind telling? ๐Ÿ™‚

11. Ms Fair Face - March 6, 2007

zara’s thoughts are sooo funny yet innocent!

12. Desperate Mummy - March 6, 2007

๐Ÿ˜€ Zara is so cute she know that she need to get married first then only she can wear the ring. She’s so mature compare to my girl.

13. Simple American - March 6, 2007

I foresee a change of opinion. No way any girl will let her man off from the ring purchase. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Nice choice too. The things a baby does to a woman’s body. Can we see a picture of your old ring?

You know you might consider getting a nice necklace and wear the old ring round your neck.

14. may - March 7, 2007

LOL!! your girl does say the darnest things sometimes. she can have lots of rings later when she’s done that marriage-then-kids thing… *wink*

15. Mama Bok - March 7, 2007

28. beckysmum - March 7, 2007

I like your new ring, simple and nice! My wedding ring still can fit in my finger but I have sensitive hands, cannot wear ring for long term… haiyaa…

29. michelle - March 8, 2007

You should highlight “the get-married-then-get-pregnant part” with big font, next them you can remind her of it when she reads your blog. Nice ring. I wish I can give excuse like that to get a new ring….:P

30. shoppingmum - March 8, 2007

I may be thinking too much, but I’m worried about the sequence thing too ever since I have a girl!

31. isabellekry - March 8, 2007
