【頭條日報:親子關係】海外升學 母親的情敵

「仔,媽年紀大,識做啦?」

俗語話養兒一百歲,長憂九十九。三十歲前,Anna從未叫過我「識做」。這一條年齡的分水嶺,似乎給了我一些啟示。

父母以前從事海鮮生意,早出晚歸的生活令我們一家難有family time。九歲到英國留學,和父母見面時間更短、更珍貴。Anna和大部份英識家長一樣,都擔心兒子到了外國讀書,會「舉翅不回顧,隨風四散飛 」,只記得在外國快樂學習,而忘記了在家鄉掛念自己的人。

事實呢?其實剛好相反。十幾年的留學「Long D」,和父母見面時間少,令我每次回港都如牛郎見織女,特別珍惜和父母相處的時間。Anna是個內斂的媽媽,瑞士雞翼、噓寒問暖、例行的飲茶食包,是我和她之間獨特的情感表達。

一樣米養百樣人,我不敢斷定所有學生都孝順。但包括我自己在內,去過外國讀書的學生,見過世界之大,只會更明白同一屋簷下,天倫之樂的可貴。Distance makes the hearts grow fonder,這說話不無道理。

一直以為,顧家就是陳思銘的孝順之道,卻忽視了自己人到三十,Anna的心態也早有改變。直到她終於開口,我才知道,原來我真的唔識做。

直到上周公司旅行,出發時望見候機室那位手抱兒子的家嫂,對奶奶呼呼喝喝,奶奶則默不作聲唯命是從。這一幕畫面尤其深刻,也頓時令我明白為何Anna最近學用微信發催婚的「長輩圖」。原來她憂我年已三十仍然不婚,更憂她的新抱不孝,那種內心矛盾,使我做仔的難以安心。

過兩天就是母親節,萬千媽媽們,尤其孩子在海外留學的,不必怕他們唔識做。人在遠方,心只會更癡家。趁此機會,我也向Anna說一句:媽,我識做。一定會努力搵到個好女仔,您可以放一萬個心。我的擇偶條件簡單,要錫你、緊張你、尊重你-我心中最重要的女人。

Anna,我愛你,母親節快樂。
