Happy Birthday, Mommy!

A few days before my birthday, my 5-year-old son already gave me a birthday card that he himself made.

On my birthday, January 31, he gave me two of his piggy banks that were almost full. He usually saves money to buy toys that he wants, but because it’s my birthday, he gave me these piggy banks instead.

This was our conversation that day:

Justin: Happy birthday, Mommy! These are my gifts for you (handing me his two piggy banks).

Mommy: Thank you, Justin! But why are you giving me these? I thought you’re using the money inside these piggy banks to buy toys?

Justin: It’s okay, Mommy. I’ll just buy toys after graduation. The money inside those piggy banks is yours.

Mommy: But why, baby? Did I ask for money?

Justin: I’m giving you my money because I heard you say the other day: “Lord, I want lots of money on my birthday!”

Indeed, I said that, and my son remembered! LOL! While I have no intention of getting the money from his piggy banks, I accepted those piggy banks to show him my appreciation. My little boy’s sweet gesture really made my birthday special and yes, happy!

    Children notice things we think they won’t. And they could be absolutely charming they melt hearts in a heart bit. Happy birthday, Mommy Tetcha.

    wow, how sweet of him! you’re both lucky to have each other mommy! belated happy birthday!


  7. I love how children give gifts.. they give from the heart which is why it’s so touching. The other day my son kept asking me if he could give away certain toys. I asked why and he answered by saying that he was going to give it to his classmate who was about to celebrate his birthday.

    Your son is so cute for giving you money (which probably came from you too haha).

    Awwwww :’) Those are the kinds of stuff that would melt my heart. So touching indeed. I remember about 8 to 10 years ago when I was still working on my immigration papers to Canada, I needed quite a big amount of financial funds for show money and stuff, and my youngest brother who is very closed to me told me one time before we went to bed that he’d sell his college education plan just so I could come up with the money I needed then. Even until now, it still pinches my heart and gets me teary eyed whenever I’d remember that :’)

    Thanks for a touching Happiness Is meme post. Hope to see you again next week for another round of happy posts 😉
