As a stay at home mom, I am thankful that I get to spend so much time with my kids. Even when they play, we're together. I read a book or blog while they do their thing, usually a make-believe play like what I overheard a few times. Sometimes, they will ask something and I get stump.
Pio: (using his toy car and toy cell) Hello Bea, sunduin na kita ha. Mag ready ka na.
Bea: ok, anu dala mo sasakyan (imitating Mama)?
Pio: race car, walang aircon sira, dala ka pamaypay.....
One time, Pio took out his toy cars and pretended to be choosing what to buy in the showroom.
He asked Bea (the agent),
Pio: Miss ok ba yang Ferrari nyo?
Bea: Ok po Sir. Magustuhan po nyo yan.
Pio: Eh yang Impala (pointing to a remote control car), mas ok yata kaya lang parang high profile yan....(the term his Papa used in describing a new Land Cruiser before)
While we're studying the different parts of the house in Pilipino, we came across the word palikuran (bathroom), here's what Pio said:
Pio: Mama pag pumasok ba sa palikuran, kelangan nakatalikod?
When the lesson is all about the national hero, flower, fish, tree...
Pio suddenly remarked, "Meron pa Mama, National Bookstore....
While on the road, Pio is always on a look-out for nice cars. He is such a car afficionado. He would tell us ahead what's the car's model, make and how many doors it has. One time, he asked,
Pio: Mama meron bang sasakyan na one door lang?
Mama: (not thinking) wala
Pio: meron....yung bus
Hubby and I are chatting about how wonderful it is to have babies in the family. Of course, Pio would say something as always.
Pio: Mama pwede ba ako bumalik sa tummy mo and maging baby uli?
Mama: HA HA HA
