Here's to cap off the merry month of May --- my little crazy firework's take on childhood, profession and happiness.
I was doing housework the entire day that I let LB do her thing. We just did the routine. It was too platonic I felt like I'm just her employee. So when I finished, I sat beside her while she was watching Mike the Knight on Disney Jr.
B: I miss you, 'nak. (showered her with lola kisses, yung may amoy factor)
LB: (eyes still glued on TV) Nyehhh.
LB: (looked at me with wondering eyes) I'm just here oh!
I love cooking. But there are times I get really lazy I order online or cook breakfast food all day. One time, we had tocino for lunch. It has become a staple hero dish 'cause it's sweet (malakas sa kanin) and easy to prepare.
LB: What's our food, 'Nay?
B: Tocino po.
B: 'Nak, tocino. Letter T.
LB: Oh, it's yummy! It looks like blood.
Hanep naman. Gore galore.
I'm adamant to allow LB to use the TV's remote control because she might break it. Sky Cable told me it's about Php800. They won't replace it if it breaks, we need to purchase a new one. One night, after her Doc McStuffins, I asked her to hand me the RC because it's my Ina Kapatid Anak turn already. In her super annoyed tone ---
LB: Why you always put it on the ref??? Just hold it, okay.Sorry po, madam.
It was almost 11pm, I was doggone tired (as always!) and my Energizer bunny was still on the loose.
B: Kung kelan gabi na, likot ng likot. Enough na Pia.Sagana ka sa S. Matulog ka na.
LB: Wait, Nanay. (jumping, moving around everywhere!)
B: Buti pa cellphone 'nak, nalolowbat.
LB: Because I'm not a cellphone, Nanay. I'm a peoples.
Just imagine how my 4-year-old preschooler interprets a profession.
B: Do you wanna be a soldier like Tatay?In fairness. Sen. Cynthia Villar, yung anak ko po mataas tingin sa mga nurse oh. BOOM. ;)
B: (uh-oh, kabado) What does it do?
LB: Yes, sir!
B: (ah... relieved) Eh how about policeman?
LB: I'm gonna get you and go inside.
B: Uhm, what does a teacher do?
LB: A is for apple, b is banana... Pupellls, quiet!
B: (laugh trip na) Okay, how about fireman?
LB: Here kitty, kitty. I'm gonna save you.
B: How about doctor?
LB: Inhale, exhale.
B: Eh dentist? What does it do?
LB: Say ah! Eww, that's bukbok in your teeth.
B: Haha! (nauubusan na ng itatanong) How about nurse?
LB: Nanay, that's doctor na eh!
