Women’s Day


They taught the kids a special song for women’s day. The holiday is a big deal here. All the mothers and grandmothers were invited to school for (another) special open day. After show and tell the kids served us oranges and honey water and thanked us for all we do.

I can’t figure out all of the song’s lyrics but the main part translates as something like: “I have a good mother, She works so hard. Come sit down and let me give you a cup of tea. Come sit and let me give you a kiss. I have a good mother.”

Max knows that it’s my favorite song. (How could it not be?) His strategy is to start singing it whenever I look pissed off.
