We will always be kids for our parents

Now I am waking up at around 8:30. Take a quick shower. Get dressed for work [shirt and jacket].

My mom prepared some breakfast: “Have something to eat,” she said.

I sat down at the kitchen table and took a few sips from the cup of tea [I never have breakfast].

“I am off to work, mom,” I said and took my car keys.

When my mom saw me taking my sports bag with me, she asked “Bugun fizkulturang bormi?”

I said “Yes, we are playing football with colleagues after work today”.

She used the word “Fizkultura” which is from school times. It is a sports subject that is part of every Uzbek school program.

What I am trying to say here is that mom sees me off to work every morning as if she is still seeing me off to school. As if I am still a teenager [there is something so sweet and funny about it].

We will always stay as kids in the eyes of our parents.
