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 WASHED BY WATER

Today is the boys’ mastery exam. While helping the little Bunso dress up.
Momi: Bunso, synonyms of beautiful?

FUNNY THINGS ON HOW MANGOSTEEN GOT ITS NAME
February 2, 2013
Do you already know how mangosteen got its name?
Let me tell you the story my boys created –
Once upon a time, in a not so faraway land, there lived an old man. His neighbors would call him Mang Gustin.
One evening came a very heavy rain, almost destroying the crops and houses within that not so faraway land.
The next morning, in a vacant lot near Mang Gustin’s house, there grew a strange fruit.
Almost everyone in the neighborhood would ask for the name of the fruit. And one neighbor said it’s Mang Gustin’s.
From then on, the strange fruit was named Mang Gustin then the story was passed from generation to another until the name became MANGOSTEEN.
FUNNY THINGS ON SUCH A BABY
February 20, 2013
Tonsillitis is in the house. I asked the boys to gargle with Bactidol. Firstborn tried very quickly. Then I heard Bunso’s sharp and sarcastic remark to his older brother: “You are such a baby!
FUNNY THINGS ON DON’T MEDDLE WITH BUNSO
March 25, 2013
For the first time, my Bunso got angry with me.
He was playing Monster War and I could hear his excitement. He was about to finish level 5. Out of too much excitement as well, I tried to help him defend his base. And he lost because of my stupid move. He burst angrily, “You don’t meddle in my game! I was about to win but you meddle and now I lost!”
He walked out angrily. He did not speak with me again that night. He got his pillows and slept in the other room.
That night, too, alone in the room, I played Monster War. Indeed, it seemed impossible to reach level 6, but I played real hard to outplay those monsters.
The next morning Bunso didn’t greet me. He acted as if I was not there. I went to our room to rest after cooking our lunch and breakfast. I heard footsteps coming.
Bunso entered the room, went up the bed and joined me. “How’s your day?” was his kind greetings to me. I smiled and answered back, “Very good. How about you?” Then I handed to him our android tablet.
He noticed that our Monster War was now at level 6. He hugged me so tight and asked, “You completed the level five for me because you want to make amends with me?”
“Now, you’ve learned your lessons. Next time, you don’t meddle with me, ok?”
I embraced my bunso. I missed him terribly.

FUNNY THINGS ON PINNA, WHAT?
August 1, 2013
I am one naughty mom. I would sometimes tease my Bunso to sleep until he would beg me to stop and be still. I especially love kissing him on the cheeks or playing with his ears. Yes, he shares the bed with me.
Last night, I kept on kissing him and would even tickle him everywhere. His rather irritated tone made me stop.
Bunso: Mama! You’re touching my pinna!
Momi: Your what?
Bunso: My pinna!
Momi: Pina? Pinya? Pinna?
Bunso: Yes, my pinna.
Momi: What’s that?
Bunso: Better read my Science book. It is the visible part of my ear. Go to sleep, and next time, study with me.
Momi: (grabbed her blanket and tucked herself in).
FUNNY THINGS ON MUCH OR MANY
August 10, 2013
Getting ready for the upcoming 1st quarter examination in English. I gave bunso a sample test questionnaire to check his countable (many) and uncountable (much) noun know-how.
Momi: Bunso, you use MANY for butterflies because you can count them.
Bunso: no, I can’t count them that easy. What if one or two butterflies flew? How can I count them?
FUNNY THINGS ON INFO OVERLOAD
September 24, 2013
Monday night while reviewing for a scheduled exam for tomorrow.
Bunso: parang di na kakasya ng isip ko. (what he meant was, too much info from reviewing)
FUNNY THINGS ON RESERVED SEAT

FUNNY THINGS ON KFC’S SECRET HERBS AND SPICES
October 14, 2013
While on our way to a birthday party, the kids were tackling about the Magellan history.
Firstborn: In a search for the Spice Island, Magellan set out from Spain with a fleet of five ships. They ended up in the Philippines and was killed by Lapu-Lapu.
Bunso: Too bad for him. He should have been to KFC instead if he was looking for the Spice Island. KFC has 11 secret herbs and spices!
Second son: And he ended up being killed. Too bad!
Your kids are very witty and fierce (in a good way). Great job, momma! 😀
Thank you. Hope they retain that fierce (in a good way 🙂 ).
I love reading through your family anecdotes. Seriously, please consider writing a book out of these stories.
Thank you. And thank you for the encouragement. Ive been wanting to write one, need more contents pa siguro. 🙂
Your kids are smart and funny! So cute!! 😉 I agree with @mamaspeaksagain, you could write a book out of this 😉
Planning to write, really. Just need some more for the contents. Thanks for the encouragement.
Hahaha you don’t meddle with bunso’s game kasi Mommy Berlin, ok? But if that ever happened to me, baka maiyak ako na nagalit sa akin ang baby love ko. My gosh! Haha
Hahha. Its hard to break a baby’s heart, no? Hahaha.
I love the story of Mang Gustin! It’s cute. I also love documenting my son’s anecdote.Too bad it was late when i started it.
Nothing’s too late, I believe. Just continue and surely you have tons of fun memories to read later in life.
Your son really knows what the word “beautiful” means when he said it’s “mama.” He’s telling the truth.
Ow, thank you. 🙂
Nice story about the Mangosteen. Hahaha! Oo nga naman, diba? Anyway, like you I also like making kulit my son when it’s bed time. That’s usually when I shower him with plenty of hugs, kisses and tickles too. 🙂
Now its the Bunso na lang who likes all the hugs and kisses. The two are pretending to be real adults na, ayaw pa minsan pa kiss.
Pinna! Hahaha! I didn’t know that. I mean, I just call it my ear. Lol. Kids are so witty nowadays.
They are. So now we know what pinna is. Hahahha.
Mang Gustin is such a creative one! Toolberone, funny! Oh my on bunso making tampo on you. How old was he then? Grabe palang magtampo mga kids. Hay, ready na kaya ako sa mga ganyan next time? haha
Hahaha. Humanda ka na. Oa sila magtampo. He was about 5yo nyan. And watch out mo ung mga mali mali nilanh words pero cute sa paningin ng nanay. Like my son with toolberone nga. Meron pa electric fant, mamanok is manok, kalupan is kalimutan. Hahaha. Nakakabaliw na nakkaaliw.
I had to reread Toolberone, haha! I love the Mangosteen story, how very imaginative!
Haha, toolberone is now Toblerone. Nakakamiss. And yes, mang gustin is a classic bedtime story at the small house.
Hahah. Si bunso nuon, kuya na ngayon because of Yael! Ang kulit ng mangosteen! lol!
Hahhaa. Yes, love the mangosteen story. And yes, he is a kuya na and thank God he loves his bunsong kapatid.
This is kind of bonding and stories that I will my miss if my son grows up na. Kulit diba
Kulit lang talaga 🙂
Wow. Ang saya that you were able to document it. Ang sarap nilang kausap sa ganyang age. Ang saya.
Yes, before patawa lang. Ngayon, they are all talking about basketball and games and gems that i cant totally understand.
