On Mother's Day

Last Sunday, I was lying down on the sofa trying to get some sleep. The heat was really getting on to me. Plus, I had a headache after a late night out with my husband the night before.

I was half asleep when suddenly I felt a small hand nudging me to wake up. I opened my eyes and I saw my little Ultraman standing next to me with a pink envelope in his hand. His brother and sisters were all standing around him.

Mummy, for Mummy..”, he said.

I was thrilled. I didn’t expect the kids to bother.

They gave me this card:




And inside it, was written this:






I love the card! It's totally cool!

Then each one of my children took turn to kiss me. “Happy Mother’s Day!”, they said.

I felt somewhat embarrassed because I was still in a daze. My hair was disheveled.

Then, the cutest thing happened...

I think, that little boy didn’t know what was going on, but seeing everyone kissing me, he must have thought it was a special day for Mummy. So, after everyone had done kissing me, he turned to me and ordered, “Mummy, baring!”.

Oh ok...

Then he held my face, looked me in the eyes, and gave me a peck on both cheeks. Aww... so sweet!

Then he ran to the kitchen. I was wondering what was he up to now. Then, he came back running to me with this:




For Mummy!”, he said.


Hee.. hee… that’s Doraemon in the McDonald’s kids meal ~ a leftover from his birthday the week before.

Ha! Ha! I thought that was so cute!

Now, that is what you called, "It's the thought that counts!"

Happy Mother's Day everyone! Hope you've had a good one!

MrsNordin said...

Hee.. hee... kelakar cerita akak ni!

Tak apa lah... one of these days, we should actually do a Mother's Day treat for all makcik bloggers!

Kita bukannya nak sangat hadiah tu, it's just the thought that counts, betul tak akak?

You memang bernasib baik dapat anak-anak yang sangat menghargai you sungguh pun they are not your own...ini semua adalah kerana you juga seorang ibu yang sangat penyayang!

BJ, that's kids for you...When you least expected it! Wish they'd be more impromptu and naive as they get older....

MrsNordin said...

Auntie Yan,

Yeah, I feel so lucky in that sense I've been well been accepted into their family. Small gestures like this makes it all worthwhile, and it reminds me that they do appreciate the things I've done for them.

Hope you've had a great day as well on Mum's Day! Cheers!

MrsNordin said...

Haq,

I was so surprised by that boy's gesture. He wanted to give Mummy something and all he could think of was his Doraemon toy! Hee.. Hee..!!

Ida Hariati Hashim said...

alahai..cutenya ur kids...but I like the Doraemon bit, pandai la Mr. Ultraman ni :)

Madam Tai Tai said...

Aaawww...he's just so adorable. I like what was written in the card -"I 'la' you!" I take it that 'la' means love. Sapa yg tolong tuliskan?

MrsNordin said...

Ida,

As I mentioned earlier, I was truly surprised by his spontaneous gesture. So cute, like that!


Mdm Tai Tai,

Nabila wrote that for him. You're right, "La" means "Love". I La You, Mummy ~ that's what he always say.

Ahhh so cute, everything..the bulu-bulu card right to the Doremon :)

Kids sure know how to steal our hearts kan? Glad you had a happy celebration :)

Hi BJ

Alahai, cair nya when given the special unexpected treat like that especially when Nizar yang cute tu pun involved. Alim continues to give me Happy Mother's Day self made card since Sunday.

MA and Brood said...

That is so sweet! For a little boy like Nizzar to part with his Happy Meal toy to give his mummy, I tell ya - that is true love!

MrsNordin said...

Hi Kay,

Yeah, the pink bulu2 is so groovy. I'm glad my kids think I'm "Fabulous". Hee.. hee..!

MrsNordin said...

Yatt,

Your Alim is so cute! Still giving you Mother's Day card till today? Well... they say it's a one month celebration. So enjoy the attention given!

BJ,

Aaawwhhh, that was really sweet of the kids. It warms my heart reading this :)

That's a cool card, but somehow, I teringat your posting about your lingerie yang bulu-bulu dulu tu! Hahaha! Errrr...or did THAT, too, somehow become a part of the celebration later that day/night, I wonder? Hahaha!)

Happy Mother's Day, BJ :)

MrsNordin said...
