Every mother is unique. For some people, she would be an irritating one, for some people, she would be a fool one. Everyone has his or her own story. My mom is unique too.. actually very unique. Today I have decided to gather my memories at one place so that whenever, wherever I read it, I can smile. So that I won’t ever regret it ever.
• SCENE 1:
<Wafa screaming from her room> MOM! May ap ki bête hoon?
<Mom screaming from her room> Jee ap hain!
wafa: pakki baat hai na? koi aur tu nahi hai?
mom: meray teen bachay or bhi hain

<silence from both sides>

OR In case mom said No I dun love you
wafa: ammi ap mujh say pyar nahi kertinnn…jaeen! Ab kabhi mujh say baat na karyee ga
mom: Naraz ho tu do rotian ziada khana
• SCENE 3:
When mom wakes me up extra early, she keeps staring at me, not knowing that when she stares, my sleep gets disturbed and I also lay still so that she wouldn’t know that I know she is staring. And in case, I change my position, she starts playing with my nose and hairs, commenting… “itni si naak hai..pata nahi kis p gaee hai.. baal tu dekhoo bomb phatta hoa hai…” and I screaming…” ammi yaar sonay tu dain na!” and when I actually wake up… I get up from bed go directly to mom and say “cheer lia ap nay? Khush hoogaeen bête ki nind kharab ker k?” and in return I see her tongue out.
• SCENE 4:
I was bored so I asked my mom: “Ammi dr. nidhi ka kia hoa?”
and ammi starts whole story and I just smiled because she forgot that I was teasing her and I hate dramas.
The next day when I was busy in preparing for my next exam, Mom came to my room and took me to her room and pointed towards the TV. and guess what? Dr. Nidhi was there!
Wafa: AMMMIIII!!!!! I was teasing you yesterdaayyyy!
Ammi: Oh acha!

Awkward moment when you see your mom in school because the previous day you were crying at home and mom asked the reason and you told her its related to school.<I know I was kid.. but I didn’t know my mom was also kid>
• SCENE 9:
The awkward moment when I Record “Ammi uth jaeen..buhat so lia ap nay” in cellphone, keeping it on repeat mode. Carefully place it beside mom’s pillow. Play it and hide under the bed. And mom actually thinks this is me who is saying again and again. After waking up it was me, ammi and her pillow beating me!

*Kill me* 😀
Hugging mom in middle of night so that she couldn’t know how much I love her. In return she hugs me back and then I have to escape replacing pillow at my place. And the other day we both pretend as if we don’t know what happened.
Mom sacrificed her whole life and still sacrificing her life taking care of her husband and children. Mom wants to be in both countries at the same time to take our care is MY best and MY unique mom. I wonder what I would do without you. LOVE U! : )
