I am now a Mother !
I am now officially nurturing... a pot of baby aloe vera !
So a few days ago, Nana came home with "Anis, LOOK !" , face plastered with ear-to-ear smile as she pointed at a pot of aloe vera on the table.
A week before, she had texted me that she's gonna bring the plant because she's going to need the gel to treat her skin. And I was like, "Aaa okay."
"But can you take care of it for me?"
"I'll give you some of the gel."
"Aaa emm aaa okay." Hahaha. So that's it. The story of how I became a Mom to Vera Wang. Yeah I decided to name it Vera Wang cause ye know... Aloe Vera, , ,Vera, Vera Wang. *blows nails*
I am yet to know if I'm capable of taking care some MUTE plant . I mean, cats meow whenever they're hungry, right ? and humans would go "Anis, I lapar," if they're hungry , right ? Right ?
But with plants ?
I ... don't know. What if I forget to water it ?!
Anyway, I saw Nana literally screaming to the plant only this evening, "GROW FASTER ! AND LET ME HARVEST YOU ! GROW (and yadayadadada some inaudible ramble).." and the inner Mom-ness in me jut went
Everyone knows babies have their own pace at growing ! How. dare. you. push. my. Vera.
You, missy. Ain't be gettin' any gel from my baby. Uh. Uh. No.
