Mummy, please wake up! Hau Yue Tse,Yuet Kwai Shing

Mummy, please wake up!
Imagine. Create. Share.
Since 2008, the Kids4Kids My Story Creation annual story writing and illustration competition has provided primary students across Hong Kong with a creative platform that enables the budding writers and artists to imagine, create and share their stories.
This story was written and illustrated by kid(s) who participated in the Kids4Kids annual 'My Story Creation competition'. We hope to celebrate all the kids who used their creativity and imagination to create a story by giving them an opportunity to custom print their story, and be able to share and inspire other kids to create their own story.
Proceeds from the sale of this custom print story will help fund the Literacy Development Programmes at Kids4Kids to provide creative learning opportunities to low resourced communities in Hong Kong. By buying a Kids4Kids custom print story, you are not only applauding the future artists & authors of Hong Kong but you are also making a difference in a child’s life!

‘Ding! Dong! Ding! Dong!' I packed my school bag, left the school and ran fast to the hospital. When I arrived the ward, I spoke again and again but nobody responded me. Then, I got a towel and helped my mummy to wash her face and body.

One month ago, my mummy had a traffic accident. The doctor said, ‘Your mum will sleep in the hospital for a really long time. If you want her wakes up early, you need to let her remember more about your good memories.'

Therefore, I went to the hospital to see my mum after school every day. Sometimes I told her about the things happened at school or home. Sometimes I told her about what we experienced before in order to let her remember our good memories.

‘Good afternoon mummy! Today is my birthday. I had a party with my classmates at school. We ate a birthday cake and played some games together. As you can't sing birthday song to me, this is the saddest birthday to me.'

24th Sep 2018
‘Hello mummy! Today is Mid Autumn Festival. Do you remember we went to the park and lit the candles last year? We also played with the paper rocket happily together. Mummy, please wake up to see the full moon with me!'

‘Woo...... Today I received Mathematics exam paper. I just got fifty-nine marks. I'm really upset and scared because I'm afraid of your punishment. However, I would rather you wake up to scold me and angry with me. Mummy, please wake up!'

‘Mummy, do you know what day is today? I went to the church this morning. I prayed for you and wished you wake up soon. Today is Christmas Eve. I hope you can have buffet and look at Christmas lights with me. Mummy, please wake up!'

‘Today is your birthday! I really, really want you to wake up because I made a special cake for you. Mummy, please wake up to enjoy the birthday cake with me. I want to say ‘thank you' to you for a lot of things.'

‘Thank you for bringing me to the world ten years ago. Thank you for taking care of me patiently. Please do homework, play card games and cook with me again. I promise I will do housework every day. I will study hard for the exam.'

Suddenly, I saw that a drop of tear fell from her eyes. Mummy's fingers were moving! I shouted loudly, ‘Doctor, nurse! My mum wakes up! Please come quickly!'

One day, I saw a naughty boy quarrelled with and shouted at his mum in the park. Then, I said to him, ‘You should love your mum and treasure the time to get on with her. Otherwise, you will regret if you can't do it again.'

Mum, I love you forever.
