My mother looked after my kids when I was still working. I was confident to leave my kids at home with our helper because I know my mother was there to supervise them. Even if my mother live with us for a long time, I rarely gave her material things on special occasion. I gave her money to buy stuff for herself, but she ended up buying clothes and toys for my kids and my sister’s kids. That’s how generous she is. This year, I want to give a birthday gift mother would truly appreciate. I’m planning to give her a nice pair of eyeglasses to replace her old pair. She has been talking about her glasses, but too timid to request any of us for a replacement.
