“Mummy Linda..!! Good evening mummy. Happy mother’s day ma. I saw what Linda bought for you on Instagram. Mummy is good. Don’t worry, I will pass by next week and drop something nice for you. How are you Mummy, how is your health now? Trust you are doing okay.”
“Mummy Mummy, why are you quiet today?”
“Because I don’t understand what you are talking about. What Mother’s Day? And what gift did Linda buy for me?”
“Haa! Mummy yesterday was mother’s day na.. And I saw Linda’s…”
“We have already celebrated Mother’s day in March, and that was when my son bought me this ear ring I am wearing. Moreover, I have not heard from Linda in almost a week now”.
“Haa! Mammi, are you serious? Linda celebrated you massively online yesterday. I think its United States Mother’s Day.”
“Haa! Toor! I am not in America now..”
“But wait ma, do you mean Linda did not buy you a beautiful silver wrist watch yesterday?”
She didn’t even call me, she is your friend now, ask her! Let me even come and call her.
All these Internet people, they used to talk a lot of lie o.. They should not come and put me and my daughter in trouble. Hia!
“Hmmm, Mammi, it’s as if is your daughter that is talking lie o.. Anyway, how is Daddy?”
“Daddy is in his room. He is still angry”.
“Oh, why? What happened?”
“He said the last Mother’s day they celebrated, nobody bought him gifts, even though he was the one who made me a mother”.
“We are still waiting for his own Father’s Day and you are here talking of another mother’s day”.
“But mummy, we have celebrated Father’s day already na..”
“Really!? When? We didn’t hear!?””
Oh no, sorry, it’s next month ma, June 20th”
Let the count down begin..! 😉😀
PS: Can we ever celebrate our Mothers too much? Certainly not! But we must never neglect our lovely fathers either.
Happy Mother’s Day To All the Sweet Mothers and Strong Fathers out there! We Love you dearly!!!
