Our weekend was jam packed with tons of pre-writing skills. While preparing for lessons, I talked to Angelo.
Mommy: Angelo I am your teacher today.We will do activities to help your writing skills. Is that ok? Call me Teacher Raquel.
Angelo: Ok teacher. But after being my teacher, will you be my mommy again?
Mommy: Of course!
We don’t have cable at home but lately we’ve been watching teleserye from ebenta.com.
I don’t normally watch with little A being around but with the trending topic of harana ni Sir Chief to Maya. Sorry I’m just a fan!! Nanood agad ako!Haha..
(While sitting on the couch and watching)
Little A: Why Sir Chief is sad?
Mommy: (Nagulat) You know Sir Chief? You know this? (referring to teleserye)
Little A: Yes! Be Careful with my heart!
Wahaha.. Maya!Ikaw na ang paboritong yaya ng lahat!
After bathing little A he sat on the floor and started playing his Hot Wheels
Mommy: Little A you’re not yet wearing your brief, you want the cockroach to eat your patutoy?
Little A: If the cockroach will come here, I will PAK him!
Mommy: WHAT?? what you will do with the cockroach?
Little A: I will PAK him.(still playing)
Mommy: What do you mean PAK?
Little A: (Stood up, took one slipper and said) If there’s cockroach mommy I will do like this (he’s describing his plan), I will get the slipper and PAK (sabay palo sa wall)
Mommy: (Sorry! but I laughed hard talaga) Ah you mean you kill the cockroach using slipper?
Little A: No I will not kill them mommy, that’s bad only PAK. I will PAK the cockroach!
While preparing little A’s clothes we had a simple conversation.
Mommy: Little A we will go to Justine’s party, you will see your friends, c’mom get ready na!
Little A: I will see my friends?
Mommy: Yes! Of course
Little A: I wil see Ate Ynah,Kuya Yani,Kuya Phillip,Ate Julie,Ate Cheezy and Maggie
Mommy: No anak, Maggie is on vacation. She will not be there.
Sudden change of mood..
Little A: I want that girl! I will get that girl and I love that girl!
Mommy: Umayos ka na..at di mo alam ang sinasabi mo!
Mommy: Little A it’s Cirrus baptism today,we will go to the party. Come here let’s put your clothes on na.
Little A: yehey! I will see my friends again. (mentioning again all of his friends including maggie)
Mommy: No maggie is still away for holiday.She will not be there. She’s still in US.
Little A: Remember I told you I will get that girl because I love that girl.
Mommy: Naku bata kapa! We’re late na come here!
Believe me I don’t have plans of letting little A to open his presents from his tita and tito of DH family.
But his convincing power ay di matatawaran..
Little A: mommy can i open these ( his holding his presents)
Mommy: No, we’ll wait till christmas na lang!
Little A: But mommy look it says “Merry Christmas ANGELO” i’m so excited!Please!
Sige ikaw na.. Ikaw na ang nkkabasa! Hehe
Thank you tita’s and tito’s for the early christmas presents.
Spending time with little A is really entertaining. I mean, at his age he really knows how to start a conversation. He talks a lot, he has so many “why” and he ask so many questions.
Yesterday while I am having my quiet time, he on the other hand is playing his toys.
Mommy: Little A there are lots of blocks under the chair. Can you get them?
Little A: Mommy it’s bricks not blocks,ok??
Mommy: Ah ok,can you get it please.
Little A: ok,mommy
Then after a while he started to play with another toy. And all of his blocks este bricks are all scattred on the floor.
Mommy: Little A if you will not play your bricks can you put back to the proper place,please.
Little A: Later mommy,I’m still playing!
Mommy: Remember I told you” you have to obey mommy and daddy”..
Little A: But I’m still playing..
Mommy: I will count and if you will not put it back then I need to discipline you. One!!
Little A started to clean up his toys with matching inarteng iyak. Yung fake na iyak.
Then tumunog and doorbell. He stopped and went straight to the door. Jumped to his dad and nagsumbong.
Daddy: How’s your day?
Little A: I cried.
Daddy: Really, why??
Little A: Because mommy is asking me to clean up the mess. I am talking gently but she started to count. She said 1…2…
Last Sunday I took off from work so little A and I can have our bonding time at home. We read,we played starfall online game,we watched Lorax movie,we had afternoon nap.We ate popcorn and waffles.
In short we really had a great quality time together.
When I saw him busy playing around the house, I grabbed the chance of ironing hubby’s uniform. Little A then saw his little teddy bear and gave it to me.
Little A: Here!! (showing the bear) It’s for you mommy!
Mommy: Wow thank you for sharing your toy..
Little A: If you always stay with me I will always give you bear..Don’t go to work.ok??
Wow.. I was speechless. This is something what he really wants “me’ being with him all day and not to go to work.
Mommy: But remember “mommy needs to go to work” because it’s a blessing from daddy God. Besides we should always be thankful that we are together here as a family,right??
Little A: NOOOO..you stay here with me,ok??
Have you ever caught in this situation where you wish staying at home ka na nga lang?
Last night before our bedtime story little A asked if we can still play “hiding the blanket” first. Actually this is one of our bonding also. We will hide under the blanket and then daddy or tita keke will look for us.
Mommy: (me whispering to him) “what’s that”
Little A : Don’t whisper mom, say “what’s that” (in a louder tone)
Mommy: Ok, what’s that (following his tone)
Mommy: Little A have you heard something??
Little A: No!
Mommy: I think there’s owl outside
Little A: Don’t be afraid,Mom” Jesus is here“
Mommy: Really? Where
Little A : Yes! (nodding) In my heart…he’s protecting us!!
Aww..I’m so overwhelmed naman that he really knew that Jesus is always protecting us.
Little A is scheduled to go to dentist later luckily daddy is off today. We are so worried about his teeth because at his age sobrang lakas pa ding mag milk even at night. Our main concern is to prevent dental carries that might lead sa pagkabungi.
We booked him for dental check-up,cleaning and flouride for kids. I know it will be a big task for daddy to be alone in the clinic. With a toddler that has phobia with dentist I’m hoping little A will cooperate.
I have duty and can’t take off today as we are near the deadline. I’m working in a publishing company by the way..
Just now I called the house to check how are they doing and the next thing I knew little A is asking me to go home.
Mommy: How are you? How’s your day with daddy?
Little A: I cried.
Little A: Because daddy said we will go to dentist. I don’t like mommy,I want you to be here. Can you come here,please…Im’afraid!
Haist! Times like this, I just wish I have a magic lamp. So I could easily ask the genie to send me home and comfort my son.#rantofaworkingmom..
