    I think it would be nice to accept it (and keep it) and surprise her later to give it back to her on her birthday or mothers day etc. Keep give her money in the mean time.

    Congrats my friend. She 'carries' you for 9mths,she sweat and toil for you for decades and she will still do that for your happiness. And you've seen it yourself what she did for your happiness. That's eternal love. Dun ever forget her. As others have mentioned before, you do have a great mum. All the best to you

    What about Love ?

    We may be a bit old fashioned.

    But doesn't Love play a part in it at all?

    haha... I think the title should say Mother is the best person in the entire universe.

    Take care and all the best.

    That depends whether she locks the door or lets the window opened or not.

    My mum paid for my wedding too but she pocketed all the ang paos....even off....with small profits

    Now I am having my own children and I am doing the same thing too, save for her insurance....medicare....save for education....save everything to her including house and my bank account.....but we never complaint....I believe tat's the same for all parents I guess, you will not ask for a return for things tat you gave to your children

    I did not utter a word(I wasn't too happy then) when she asked for more but now I realised it was force saving for me.

    .... sorry and thank you mum (although I did not spend a single cent.)
    congrats!

    The love of mum is always unpredictable and selfless.
