THE HORRIBLE DOUGHNUT
May 11, 2011
Momi Berlin brought home a box of Gonuts Donuts. Firstborn and Second son took their pick, while Bunso got the peanut butter-flavoured doughnut and took a bite. He leaned near my face and whispered, “Tastes horrible.” Then grinned.
No doubt, he heard the word HORRIBLE in one television show.
THE DOG THAT DOESN’T LOOK LIKE A DOG
August 11, 2011
With their mother working away from home, the only possible way to help my boys review for their exams is through making examination papers for them to work with.
Plus you got to receive comments like, “This doesn’t look like a dog, mama.”
THE CHURCH TANOD
September 19, 2011
Our family heard mass last night. A little girl sat beside us and she would sing and run within the area. Bunso was obviously irritated.
Bunso: Mama, when I’m old na, I will guard this church during mass so no little girls would be too playful and disrespectful.
THE PUSAKAL AND JAPAN
We reviewed for the boys’ mastery exam. Snippets of our conversation:
Momi Berlin: Ok, now, a group of lions
Momi Berlin: a group of dogs
Momi Berlin: a group of fish
Bunso: school of fish
Firstborn joined conversation
Firstborn: How about a group of cats?
Bunso: Huh? (then looked at me, very clueless).
Firstborn: E di, pusakal.
Momi Berlin: USA?
Bunso: United States of America
Momi Berlin: Very good!
Second son likewise raised his own question.
Second son: Bunso, how about Japan?
Momi Berlin and Bunso looked at each other, very clueless.
Second son: Just Always Pray At Night.
EAVESDROPPING ON KIDS
September 20, 2011
bunso: When I pee, my body shakes. What was that for?
firstborn: Because that’s the way it is.
second son: Better ask mama to be sure.
second son: What does internet stand for?
bunso: Facebook and Angry Birds.
second son : H – U – W – A – T ! ! ! It is interconnected network! That simple!
bunso: I love Hansel Cookie especially when I dip it in my milk. Hmmmm. Delicious!
second son: I don’t like that Hansel. I don’t like mocha.
firstborn: Me too. I like the white one better. The vanilla flavor.
second son: Yes, the vanilla flavor. How can we finish all these if we do not like mocha?
firstborn: You tell mama to buy the vanilla flavor instead.
bunso: Why should we drink milk before sleeping?
firstborn: Because milk makes you tall.
bunso: Mama told me I will get tall if I sleep. Then I will get tall by drinking milk. My! I will be so tall na.
OUR LITTLE MAGICIAN
Had the opportunity to eat dinner with the boys last night. With business trips and coming home late at night, I seldom join them for dinner. Last night was different. We had our usual joke time and updating session.
Firstborn: mama, I have one funny story.
Momi Berlin: Go ahead.
Firstborn: There was once before a bald boy. his favorite color was blue. His house was color blue. He went to school and his school was color blue. He went to the comfort room and even the tiles were in color blue. He saw a green comb. Why didn’t he get the comb?
Momi Berlin: Because it’s green. His favorite color is blue.
Firstborn: No! because he was a bald boy.
And the boys roared with laughter.
Bunso: I have mine as well. I have a story too.
Momi Berlin: Ok, your turn now, bunso.
Bunso: there are two birds named Repeat and Irepeat…
Second son: It was the same story you’ve been telling us for months now, bunso.
bunso: Ok, I will do a magic for all of you instead.
Momi Berlin: Nice. Go ahead.
THE TRUTH ABOUT TOOTH FAIRY at AGE 9
Early morning, firstborn handed over his tooth to me.
Firstborn: I had my tooth extracted all by myself. I placed the tooth under my pillow hoping the tooth fairy will replace it with money once I have fallen asleep. I saw the tooth under the pillow still. No money for me. Tooth fairies aren’t true pala.
Last night, FiRstboRn entertained us with his puppet show – such a relaxing way to end the day.
Kids are so much fun, aren’t they? You just never know what they will say or do.
Indeed true. Very spontaneous.
Hahah these are so great! I really liked the story of the bald boy
Hahah. Me too. Didnt even remember the boy being bald because of all the blue stories.
I love the way your boys think. Kids say the cutest things.
Thank you. They lovd sharing jokes and funny stories.
That is great you are writing it all down. They grow up so fast and you forget about how cute their minds worked.
Yes, exactly the reason I have to jot down everything before I totally forgot about those funny details.
Kids’ thoughts are very genuine. They are so fun to be with. I like how they think!
It is amazing the way children think – wonderful to keep a record of it all. x
Kid logic is one of the most incredible things! I love to record my kids!
One of the best parts about having kids is hearing their takes on the world and everything that comes out of their mouths!
Love the one about Tooth Fairy! One day they will discover it themselves, LOL!
Hahaha. And they would soon discover those fairies were their parents. Hahaha.
lol it’s all a matter of perspective, right? 🙂 Kids really do say the darndest things. 🙂
I agree. But they remain cute and adorable despite of their being clueless or frankness.
Kids are always fun! They say the funniest things and it’s really so nice to be able to spend time with them after a long day at work. Looks like you’re having a lot of fun!
One of the best conversations is to have it with kids. You will surely end up laughing and inspired.
This is really funny. I love the convos. It’s the same one I have with my son but a little more sarcastic coz he got his sarcasm from me hahaha.
Hahaha. I love kids when they sometimes show sarcasm. Ehehe.
This is hilarious! What a great way of remembering what they say!
Haha. Yes. I hope they wont deny it when they happen to read this.
This is too funny, such a fun way to remember
Indeed a fun read for this mother.
This is so great and kids thinking was really genius
Thank you. Yes, kids’ thinking is sometimes beyond our control and imagination b
I always giggle when reading your blogs, we have someone in the UK who writes like you too and he is a ‘Dad blogger’ similar but very funny too.
Thank you. Would love to read his blog, too. 🙂
hahahah! that dog one. sooo funny and adorable. Great post, I was drawn away from my daily worries and just got to enjoy this post
Thank you that you enjoyed this short read.
Kids are always so funny to me. Thanks for sharing! You made my day.
Thank you for the appreciation.
Hahaha! So funny. I can’t imagine my son when he will start his schooling next year.
Hahhaa. better ready yourself.
Hilarious! Gotta love the funny things they say
Hihi. Thanks for the appreciation.
Omg literally lol’d though this entire thing! Too funny!
Thank you for finding this post entertaining:)
This cracks me up! I like how kids can be originally funny at many times.
Haha. Lol on originally funny. And most of the times, they are clueless that they are funny talaga.
I also like how they think. So original and witty.
i am struggling with tooth fairy still haha although i alway give my daugher gold chocolate coins instrad haha
The gold chocolate coins are indeed a great idea. I still have an 11-month old who would soon experience this tooth fairy thing so I will definitely save some gold chocolate coins.
