I was in the car with Hilman after fetching him from school earlier on. He was sitting alone at the back, with his schoolbag occupying half of the space.
We were on our way to his Wan's house to fetch his Kak Long Hanna and Kak Ngah Hasya, before going back to SD when he suddenly said -
Hilman : Mommy, your "surprise" is in my schoolbag okay, Mommy?
(FYI, he has been hinting about this "surprise" for me for the last week or so :))
Me : "Surprise"?! Hmmmm, I think I know what it is, Man. You want me to guess, ke?
Hilman : Okay la, Mommy. You can make a guess.
Me : It's a Mother's Day Card, right?
Hilman : (Silent for about 10 seconds) I know you already know la, Mommy.
Me : Hehehe...Sorry, to have spoilt it for you. Thank you, dear. Did you make it yourself?
Hilman : You see la nanti, Mommy...(Pause for about 10 seconds again). That's why la all my books are on the seat. Cannot fit in the bag because your "surprise" is in there.
I looked behind, and true enough his books were all over the backseat!
Me : Cannot fit in your bag?! Waaaaahhh, how BIG is my Mother's Day card, Hilman?
Hilman : I'll give it to you in 2 days time, okay? Then you see laaa...
Me : Okay, darling :)
Hilman : And Mommy, when I give it to you in 2 days time, make sure you "look" surprised, Okay?
Me : (???!!!) Errrr, okay... (Hehehe!)
So from now until Sunday, I will be spending most of my time in front of my mirror - practising my best "SURPRISED" look for my dear boy ;)
* HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL MOTHERS OUT THERE! Hope you'll have a lovely time with your family this weekend. And make sure practise your muka 'surprised' for your anak-anak, too, okay? ;)
