May 6, 2016 | Only Berlin

Anecdotes from tots is a compilation of those  fun moments with my Second son, then six years old.

ANECDOTES FROM TOTS ON AT AGE 6, HE WANTS TO BE A SOLDIER

Araw ng Kagitingan 2010

We visited a gun shop.

Second son:  Are those for soldiers?

His father nodded.

Second son:  May I try one?

At age six, second son is indeed serious about being a soldier.

ANECDOTES FROM TOTS ON PLEASE TRY AGAIN

Saturday, 24 April 2010 at the small house

Second son:  I’ve seen two people who already won the Safeguard promo.  Why haven’t we got any?

*  Safeguard had a promotion.   Specially marked cartons have P1,000,000.00 sign on it.  Unfortunately, we’ve opened a number of soap cartons and none yet of the cash sign.

ANECDOTES FROM TOTS ON PENIS MIGHT GET COLD

Monday, May 3, 2010

The kids just had their shower.  I mentioned to them not to wear their briefs.  “It’s too hot,” I said.  I saw the objection in second son’s eyes.  He voiced his concern.   “But what if my penis gets cold?”

I do not have one so maybe, he got a point.  He had his underwear that night.

ANECDOTES FROM TOTS ON DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A  BROTHER AND A FRIEND

Monday, May 3, 2010

A brother is someone you knows and lives with you in one house. A friend, however, is someone you know but lives in another house far from yours. – second son

ANECDOTES FROM TOTS ON BATS AND CAMERA FLASHES

5 June 2010 at the small house

I was uploading our Sagada photos when my two boys approached me.

Four-year-old son:  Is that a cave? (pointing to the picture).

mama:  Yes.

Four-year-old son:  Where are the bats?  Caves have bats.

The second son:  You cannot take pictures of bats,  you might startle them and they will attack you.

No need to explain anything to Bunso when his Kuya is around.  Thank you, Lord, for Kuyas.

ANECDOTES FROM TOTS ON THE TEETH CUTTER

Monday,  7 June 2010

I saw the uneven cut of six-year-old son’s nails. I asked him who trimmed his nails.  He answered, “I did.”

“How?” I asked back.

“I bite them.”  To bother me with things he considered too easy to handle is a no-no for him.

ANECDOTES FROM TOTS OPTEIN FOR HIS KUYA

Wednesday, 16 June 2010

One commercial break, Second son mentioned, ” Kuya should take Optein so his eyesight will improve.”

*Optein is an eye supplement capsule that promises healthy eye with continued intake.

ANECDOTES FROM TOTS ON BIRTHDAY RESPONSIBILITY

Saturday, 27 August 2010

I went to the comfort room only to find Second son washing his behind.

Surprised,  I immediately washed him and his hands as well.  “Why didn’t you call me?” I asked

“You mentioned that as I turn seven, I should know how to wash,”  he answered.  that nearly broke my heart.

That day was his birthday.

ANECDOTES FROM TOTS ON PRESCHOOL NO MORE

September 21, 2010, at the small house

Last night, my four-year-old son was teaching me the song “Three Little Indians.”    From his sleep, seven-year-old son suddenly rose from his bed and said rudely, “That song is not for me anymore.  It is too pre-school.”  This mother was stunned.

ANECDOTES FROM TOTS ON DINOSAUR OR TRAIN

7 October 2010

Anecdtoes from tots: Mama Dino of Ice Age and Thomas of Thomas and Friends.

Second son:  Which is faster, train or dinosaur?

Bunso:  (excited)  Train!

Second son:  You’re wrong! It’s the dinosaur.  Here comes the train traveling fast.. (woost!)… but made a stop at the next station… (engkk)… and now here comes the dinosaur leaving the train behind.  The dinosaur wins!

ANECDOTES FROM TOTS ON DUMBY NEEDS NO BLANKET

10 October 2010

Dumby is husband’s gift to bunso on his 3rd bday.

I was about to sleep when Bunso mentioned that Dumby, our big teddy bear, wanted a blanket. In an as-a-matter-of-fact tone, Second son said, ” Dumby is a stuffed toy.  It doesn’t feel anything.”

ANECDOTES FROM TOTS ON SOLE CUSTOMER

11 October 2010

Second son relayed to this mama his one proud moment in school.

A canteen staff with a food cart stopped by the classroom of the afternoon grade I students.  “Who wants to buy anything?”  she shouted.   It was only second son who raised his hands and said, “Me!”

The canteen staff asked him what he will buy and my six-year-old boy said, “I want to buy Frutos.  Two only.”

I cannot help but laugh. Surely the canteen personnel and his teacher enjoyed that scene as well.

ANECDOTES FROM TOTS ON 6yo LEARNS TO ASK MONEY

12 October 2010

Six-year-old son mentioned that he bought again from the mobile canteen cart.  That time, he got for himself a small bar of Choey chocolate.  He asked me for a regular twenty-peso allowance so he could buy the biscuit he saw on TV one commercial break.

ANECDOTES FROM TOTS ON ON COUNTING SHEEP

15 October 2010

Second son “unburdened his heart” to me.  He cannot sleep.  I advised him to count sheep.

About three minutes later, I asked him  to switch on the lampshade.  It was too dark inside the room.

He sleepily said to me, “I am at number 76.  I am nearly finish counting sheep.”

Oops, sorry.  Never thought he will take my advice seriously.

    You can tell from these stories how much you love your sons. Little boys can be so serious about things like being a soldier! And it’s sweet that your son took the advice to count sheep. It’s nice that you have so many special moments like these with your boys.

    LOL! Berlin. Funny anecdotes. I remember one time when I brought my bunso to Shanghai. We lived in a Ascott Service Apartment so one day, after a meal, we were back. I was in the living room while he was in the bedroom. A while later he came out to the living room completely naked. I asked him why?

    He said he just finished poopoo. My thought was, OMG, the mess… I checked his hands, they were clean.

    I checked the toilet, it was clean.

    I looked inside the toilet bowl, and that’s where I saw it, he managed to use up one pack of wet napkins to wipe himself.

    It was the first time he did that.

    Keeping these memories with your boys are treasures! Specially since they grow up so fast. I don’t have kids on my own but I feel the same way with my nephews. They grow up so fast and I miss how cute and honest they were back when they are still little cuddly kiddies. Lol

      Yup, so honest and clueless most of the time. My boys now are all acting like grown up men.

    So sweet how children act to advices of parents; took you very seriously with the counting of the sheep. I remember as being a child how much I hated it when I couldn’t sleep and I still have that today. It’s so much fun to keep quotes of your children. It’s worth a lot in my opinion. So much fun to tell them later on their wedding too =)

    Oh I’m so looking forward to see my daughter and us (parents) having that cutey time with her. Your boys are so adorable and I love that you were able to document all those quotable quotes.

    You should keep recording those and share it to them when they grow up . I can just imagine how happy they would be to know you kept all these memories.

      Yes, makes you laugh even when alone and people would notice you laughing alone and would think youve gone crazy.

    Kids say the funniest things! I also blog about the funny things my son says. When I reread them, I would still laugh and sometimes I can’t believe he really said those things!

    I’m sure they would love to read this when they’re adults 🙂
