Help with Common Arabic Phrases

Hello! I need help inserting some common Arabic phrases into a story I'm writing. There are lots of websites with suggestions, but I'm having a hard time figuring out the right uses related to gender. Any assistance would be helpful.

Here are the phrases I want my character(s) to say:

Son to mother:
"Hello, mother. How was your day?"
"Good night, mother." Followed by an affectionate phrase like "sleep well or "don't let the bedbugs bite"

Mother to son:
"Good night."

Also, would there be any other very common phrases that might be peppered into everyday conversation, even if the family speaks primarily English? Some scene settings are around dinner time and comings-and-goings before and after work.

Thanks in advance for any assistance!
