"Youyou is mommy's little angel. How can I forget that tomorrow is Youyou's birthday? I wish you a happy birthday in advance, as well as a happy Children's Day!"
Dazed, he took the present from her hand. Only then did he realize that his mommy was pulling his leg.
That's right; how would mommy ever forget my birthday?
He bowed and looked at the exquisitely wrapped present. On the gift card were her carefully written words 'Baby, Happy Birthday!' His little fingers brushed against those neat and beautiful words; the ink had dried by now.
The little lad, who just had a vacuous and grim look on his face, instantly brightened up like sunshine after the rain!
He showed utmost contentment as he held his present in his arms.
This was his most blessed moment.
"Thank you, mommy!"
He was feeling so light-hearted his little legs could not stop dangling.
"Tomorrow is also mommy's birthday!" Saying that, the little boy movingly embraced her face and dropped a big kiss. "Mommy, you have worked hard. You brought me to life, so Youyou will stay by your side for the rest of my life! I won't let mommy suffer any pain or grievances!"
Every word that came from his mouth was solemn and divine. It was a sacred declaration!
She beamed. "Baby is such a good boy!"
"Mommy, do you have work tomorrow?"
"I think so." She paused and remembered that she had to visit the studio in the morning for her makeup trial.
Hearing this, he hung his head in disappointment.
She could not bear to see his dejected look and blurted out a thought, "Mommy should be free in the afternoon!"
"Oh, then, mommy, let's visit Fairy Tale Valley!" Excited anew, he magically presented two entry tickets to the amusement park from his pocket.
Fairy Tale Valley was the world's most famous and popular fairy-tale thematic amusement park. This was a fairytale kingdom that every child looked forward to visiting the most. It was built by Lezhi Holdings in collaboration with N.E. Group and had six wildly desired holiday resorts globally.
"Sure, but how did you get these entry tickets?"
"These are birthday presents from the principal!" He casually assured her.
As the biggest shareholder of Lezhi Holdings, he naturally held the shares for Fairy Tale Valley. A simple command from him was all it took to get a hold of these tickets.
"Eh! Mommy will come pick you up in the afternoon!"
"Youyou, quickly unwrap your present to see what mommy got for you!" His grandfather teased him good-heartedly.
The boy enjoyed the process of unwrapping his gift the most. He painstakingly kept every birthday gift of her to him.
Last year, his mommy gave him a toy assembling model as his present. After assembling the toy, he carefully stored it away.
For the average kid of this generation, toys were novelties. When parents bought a new toy, a child would play with it for the first few days, but after a while, he or she would get tired of it and throw it aside. For those naughtier, the toys might be broken unconditionally.
It was not the same for him, though.
He treasured any toy he got from his mother. Be it a big-ticket item, like a limited-edition toy model, or something as small as a ring, he preserved everything well.
