When I arrived at my mum's house to fetch the kids on Monday night, I was pleasantly surprised by my soon-to-be-seven-year-old with a red rose!
I've received flowers from HQ before when he was younger; those that he picked from roadsides and Mum's garden. For this particular rose, it's for Mother's Day and he bought it with his own pocket money! :-D
He told me he saw roses selling in his school bookshop last Friday, and he asked how much it cost. So on Monday, he took RM1.50 that he saved and bought the rose for me. He told me he's the only kid with a rose in the class and many of his classmates came over to admire it :-D.
I love how thoughtful he was. It must be not easy for him to keep his little secret to himself during the weekend. I was so touched! Seeing how happy I was, he was grinning from ear to ear.
My dear sweet boy, I love you so! :-D
