Mo would like an easy job please!

It's been a while since I have blogged. I seem to be running out of topics and also I am not sure what you like to read about since you hardly ever comment. Anyway today I just have to share these gems with you, these jewels that Mo left me with before he went back to school in England. Like I have said a million times before, I am perpetually amazed by the beautiful minds that our children have, so innocent, so unique. So here goes:

Gem # 1

Me: Mo do you want to get married in future?
Mo: Maybe...(after some thought) yes.
Me: But you don't really talk to any of the girls in school so then how will you talk to your wife?
Mo: Well I will need a supervisor to help me communicate and teach me how to talk to my wife.
Me: Ummm okaaay...we'll see what we can do.

Gem # 2

Mo: When I was young, I used to think God was cruel.
Me: Why?
Mo: Because he gave me difficulties.
Me: But Mo he gave you so many strengths as well.
Mo: Yea. But I am over that part of my life.
Me: Which part?
Mo: I have grown out of autism; I am not autistic anymore.
Me: But there is nothing wrong with ... (cut off by Mo abruptly)
Mo: I said I am not, so I am not... OKAY!

Gem # 3

Mo: Mama when I come back to Singapore I want to do a job, an easy job (repeat x10)
Me: Okay Mo we will find you an easy job
Mo: But what if I can't do it? What if i get kicked out? I am stressed!  (repeat x10 agitated x100)
Me: Mo we will figure out something...
Mo: Noooooo you want me to be a couch potato and beg my brothers for money....I want a job BUT I DON'T WANT IT TO BE HARD!

Dear Singapore,

Mo is coming back to you next year. You better have an EASY job ready for him AND a wife with a supervisor in tow!


Mo's mom.
