I am missing these now. Almost every weekend, our small house is literally converted into a carnival. But that was two years ago. Now, the boys prefer to watch TV programs (basketball, Science of Stupid, etc) though they would still play chess once in a while. The small house is quieter now (our baby seldom cries). Missing these –
This mother was heartbroken. Everyday, she would wake up at 4:30 am to cook breakfast and prepare the baon of her boys. She learned though that her two boys didn’t eat the pancit sotanghon she cooked for their recess. The Bunso didn’t even open his lunchbox.
She felt so unimportant and disrespected.
We were late. My son was a little anxious. Seldom was he late in his class or any commitment. But once we’ve reached The Maya Kitchen workshop venue, I saw a relieved smile on my 10-year-old’s face. He readily joined his teammates and spent no time catching up and whipping some batter. A few minutes after and I saw him all relaxed. He was in his usual jolly spirit.
For the past few weeks, I found myself easily upset and spoke of harsh comments. I have known myself to be kind and gentle to my children. The boys had the same observation. Perhaps the upcoming school enrollment and our baby’s birthday celebration might have caused my crankiness.
Anyway, what is the point then?
A priest, through his sermon, shared the story of the TROUBLE TREE. I really like how the carpenter puts his trouble behind him and faces a new undertaking with a positive mood. It is something we ALL could learn from.
I hope you are still enjoying my compilation of anecdotes. This is seriously eating up my time, but I am having fun. My boys are perhaps complaining as well. I use their laptop most of the time. And funny that they would stare at each other when they hear me laugh while typing.
Hopefully, this would be the last two of my 10-part collection. Enjoy!
ANECDOTES ON WONDERWOMAN
August 12, 2013
What are you doing there beside my sauce canister, Wonderwoman?
No doubt, it must have been one of the boys. And who among the three? That I have to ask around.
Anecdotes from tots is a compilation of those fun things my kids said and did when they were still little boys.
FROM TOTS ON PIMPLEFUL PUPPET
March 13, 2014
I got this puppet from Bunso. He told me the puppet was me. He stressed that the little dots were my pimples.
You are really a very honest kid, my darling. And don’t worry, you didn’t hurt me that much. ihihihi.
Pardon the many installments. I fear that you might find the post too long, thus cut them into parts. I am sharing with you again those funny things my kids uttered. These are when they were still small men pa. These also remind me to never tire of listening to their stories. Honestly, I learn more from them than they from me.
FUNNY THINGS ON TOOLBERONE
February 4, 2013
FUNNY THINGS / This is my Bunso’s TOOLBERONE. Yes, it’s TOOLBERONE.
Never thought I’ve documented all these. Or maybe I got three kids at the small house to make me happy. I bet there were still so many funny moments I’ve recorded and misplaced. Again reasons that make this momi laughs –
MOMI LAUGHS ON OBSERVANT SECOND SON
July 26, 2012
Second son: Mama, I am now level 4 at Top Shots (an online shooting game).
Second son: Have you played tetris? How about car town? I sent you a gift.
Momi: Ow, Second son. I can’t play online games at the office.
Second son: How come the other person from your office plays chess when I went there before?
I was able to clean my knick-knack box, thanks to my boys who helped me with our nine-month-old guy. From my cleaning, I saw some battered sheets of paper with my quick writings on them. I found this momi laughs alone. Sharing with you the treasures I’ve found –
MOMI LAUGHS ON THE COMPUTER IS A GENIUS
September 5, 2012
Bunso has ringworm. I asked my ever reliable pedia-cousin for an effective medicine to treat ringworm. She recommended Miconazole. My son has been using it for almost a week now.
Without my knowing, Bunso checked the internet one day. He searched for buni (ringworm) and read Miconazole as an effective treatment for it. He mentioned to me that we are using the right medication.
Anecdotes from tots is a compilation of those fun moments with my boys. Sometimes, children say and do the funniest things. I hope you never tire of reading some of these funny lines. They may bring a few chuckle or smile to your face. My Big Bunso here was about 4-5 years old while my Second Son was 7yo.
ANECDOTES FROM TOTS ON HOW LONG IS YOUR 2MINS
November 15, 2010
Since Pnoy declared November 16 a non-working holiday, the kids can play Plants vs Zombies. While playing, I ask Bunso if I can use the computer for a few minutes. I will just harvest the blackberries (Farmville) I planted four hours ago.
“How many minutes are you going to use the computer?” asks bunso.
“Two minutes only,” is my answer.
“Is your two minutes long or very long?” he asks again.
I remember the last time I interrupted his game. My two minutes took twenty minutes. I cannot blame Bunso for questioning my sincerity.
