One Day After School...

Big H came back home from school one day and straight away sat on our blue futon...immediately, I saw that he was inexpertly trying to hide something behind his back..

Mama: What's that you have there?


Big H: Nothing.


Mama: Tsk...I can see that you're hiding something there....what is it?

Big H: It's nothing! (Sounding a little desperate..)

I looked at him...Ish budak ni...macam ada bawak something really 'wrong'...like drugs...or a porn mag...or something illegal??? But I shook my head to clear these crazy thoughts..for god's sake he's only 7!!


Big H: (Showing his empty hands to me confidently..) See...nothing!

And that's when I saw the small, glittering pink card hidden just underneath his jacket...


Mama:
(Grabbing the little card..) Aha! What's this?




Big H: No..!!!! I don't want to go!
(Really looking desperate now..)

Mama: Huh?? Oh..It's an invitation to a birthday party...pergilah. (I know the girl and the parents - nice people...
)

Big H: But I don't want to!
(Really adamant, really serious..)

Mama: Huh? Apasal pulak...Why don't you want to go?


Big H: Because...because..it's a girl's birthday party.


Mama: La....
apa salahnya...doesn't matter if it's a girl or a boy having a birthday party. If we get an invite to one we should try to go unless we really can't, you know? What if it was your birthday party and all the people you invited didn't want to come?

Big H: But..but..

Mama: But what?? (Getting impatient...)


Big H: But I'm the only boy invited!!

Mama: Ohh....

La...malu rupanya...he he he he


But it turned out that he had madrasah to go to anyway that particular evening so I went to see the girl's parents to give my apologies for not being able to send him to the party...


My little boy has 'grown'...he really has.

As cute as it sounds, I'd say WOW.. Big H is popular with the girls already, eh? Hmmm... future headache there, hehe. And I think the charms of Little H won't help you one bit! Haha...

Hi, sorry long time no write. but do read in once in a while on you and rin, my two fave bloggers and cooks extraordinaires.

Just wanna add that mika once had a bday invite from a girl at school . he 's always mentioned that he didn't like her but when I asked if he'd like to attend the party, he said, yes coz he loves to party. Hahahaha so i guess love for parties can override dislike for girls. Too bad Big H was the only boy invited. She must either really like Big H a lot or has no other little guy friends hahaha

However, we didn't go. We sorta forgot about it in our busy-ness that day.
