Was that a knock?
“Mia..is that you? What happened, baby?”
Seema sighed and turned away from her computer. It was impossible to work without getting interrupted!
The door opened and in walked her 8-year-old.
“Mama, do you have some fabric glue ?”.
Seema decided to play along. “Sure, darling. What’s it for?”
“Umm..it’s for a project. I’ll show it to you later.”
“Okay. Here you go.”
Hardly an hour later, she was back in the room.
“Mama, mama, I fixed this for you. This was my last project.”
Mia was holding Seema’s favorite blouse.
The very blouse that Seema had to abandon when the button came off just minutes before the concall!
She’d glued the button on!
“Aww! That’s really sweet of you. Thank you, baby”.
Seema gave Mia a hug.
