You know your kids have grown when the things they say or do reminds you of yourself.
After school on friday, Aidan said that his teacher instructed them to buy a paper clock from MPH bookstore. He described the clock and said that it should cost RM7. Each of the students needed it for their next Maths class. I popped by an MPH bookstore yesterday afternoon, searched high and low for it. I asked the sales assistant for help but nowhere in that MPH bookstore was there a paper clock! Knowing how Aidan will react, I took a deep breath and called Aidan.
Me : Aidan, Mommy is at a MPH bookstore but they don’t sell the clock here.
Aidan : It it in a shape of a flower and has ladybugs on them.
Me : I know, but they don’t sell it here.
Aidan : DID YOU ASK THE MAN??? (salesperson)
OMG! I realized he sounded just like me!
Me : Yes I did. You’d just have to tell your teacher tomorrow that we couldn’t find it ok?
Aidan : (reluctantly) ooookayyy!
At the last minute, I group messaged his classmates’ mommies and by that evening, one mommy managed to buy the clocks for some of us 🙂
