motherly love

“Make time for your mother on your birthday. It’s a special day for her .”

^In reference to the first quote, I’m sort of ashamed to say I’ve never even thought of that! Came across this adage today, and definitely taking it to heart: I want to make it an effort to call my mom every birthday now. I mean, she only thought about my potential birthday for at least 6 months, and has celebrated it with me the past 2 decades. Thanks Mom for being amazing…you are the best ❤ 🙂

asian parent quotes #2

Me: Hey parents, so it turns out I’ll need a car in MD for this year
Parents: Hmm alright. Use the van for now.
Me: Will you guys be ok? (we didn’t have enough cars for everyone to drive to work, so my parents were going to carpool in the meantime o_O) Do you think it’s time I bought my own car?
Parents: Just keep the van for now. We’ll figure something out.

2 weeks later:
Mom: So…should I get the Tesla?
Me: WHAT?!
Mom: just kidding!

1 more week later:
Parents: We got an electric car! (Ford Focus!) It drives so well!
Me: So…what about the van?
Parents: The van is now yours. Enjoying the new ride 🙂

To put this in context, I now drive around a 2002 Toyota Sienna…total soccer mom status without the company ^__^’ Gotta love my family. Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy to have ANY vehicle to drive. But its sort of funny 😛

I think I’m going to start a new sub series, just because some of these things are too good to not post.

parents: Hey, when are you planning to move down to MD?
me: I was thinking June 22nd?
parents: Hmm…can you move any earlier, like the 20th? or later, like in July?
me: No, my lease ends June 28th 😦
parents: alright we’ll hire you a moving company, since we won’t be in town to help you move out. we’re going to northern europe for three weeks!
me: ;__;

Haha my parents definitely deserve it though…they have been such good parents and deserve to finally enjoy life and empty nesting…while still supporting my tuition ^__^’ Can’t wait until the day when I can finally pay them back ❤
