This week’s topic is about that special lady in our life – our mothers. The overwhelming response shows us that Starchild readers want to make their Mummies happy, and we know she will be very proud of all of you.
Here’s what our young readers had to say on Mothers Day, which was celebrated on May 8.
“I have always been a lazy boy. My mother always has to remind me to complete my chores and homework. My present to my mother this Mothers Day is to do my homework without being told, practise the piano and be an obedient boy. Happy Mothers Day, Mama. I love you,” says Chuah Seng Koon, six.
“For Mothers Day, I treated Mummy to a meal comprising a burger, French fries and a drink,” says Tan Rui Xin, seven.
Nine-year-old Toh Yee Tong says: “This croissant was for my mother on Mothers Day. The item came with blueberries, egg yolk, salad leaves, tomatoes and chips. It was so yummy!”
“Happy Mothers Day! Thank you for caring for me, and loving me. You are the best Mummy ever. Sorry for upsetting you sometimes. I promise I will be a good girl. I love you, Mama,” writes Claire Yap Jyn Wei, six.
Older sibling Sophie Yap Jyn Qing, nine, thanks her mother for raising her with so much love. “Happy Mothers Day! Thanks for taking care of me and bringing me on holiday. I love you, Mummy!”
“Happy Mothers Day to my mother, grandmama and grand-pohpoh! On Mothers Day, I helped to clean the house so that my mum could rest and relax in a cleaner and tidier house,” writes Bethany Wang Qi Syuen, seven.
Younger sibling Asher Wang Qi Chuen, four, sent in a drawing of his family going for a lovely walk on Mothers Day. “It’s something my family likes to do. I love Mummy very much.”
“This Mothers Day was the best day because I got to play with Mummy all day long. I helped my mother to do house chores and cook. I made a card for Mummy for Mothers Day I love my mother so much,” says six-year-old Wong Jie Ern.
“My Mummy is pretty and trendy. We always joke together. She likes to exercise. On Mothers Day, my family and I took her out for breakfast at her favourite cafe as she enjoys coffee. I also presented her with a bouquet of flowers and chocolates. I love you, Mum,” says Wong Zhi Ying, eight.
Eight-year-old Wong Cheng Yang thinks Mother’s Day is a special day for mothers. “It falls in May each year. This year, I gave a bouquet of flowers and a hand-made card to my mother. We also played games and with toys together at home. I love my Mummy very much.”
“I love Mummy because she always helps me in times of need. My present to her on Mothers Day was a big hug and kiss. Happy Mothers Day,” writes seven-year-old Ong Keat Hsin. - Compiled by Sheela Chandran
