Sep 9, 2016 | Love, Only Berlin

Presenting my 15th installment of the anecdotes from tots.  Now. it’s very seldom that my boys make their momi laugh because of their witty and sometimes bizarre statements or musings.  Still, glad that I was able to compile some of them.  I hope they chance upon this page and read just how they made their momi so happy and proud.

Anecdotes from tots on pixelated video

June 4, 2013

Second son and the father in a serious conversation

second son:  Papa, why is the woman’s breast pixelated in the video?

the father:  (readily imagined the kind of video his son saw on tv)  Ow, because the part of a woman’s body is too precious and sacred to be seen in public.  The network needs to hide it from the viewing public.

second son: Ahh.

Anecdotes from tots on strange light

June 2013

After their warm glasses of milk, I sent the boys to bed. It was time to sleep.

From the bedroom door, though, I saw a rather familiar light obviously not coming from the lamp or the fluorescent bulb.  It was a strange yet familiar light from the boys’ bedroom.

I turned on the light and look what I discovered –

Anecdotes from tots on the good news and the bad news

April 29, 2013

With the mother not leaving the house for two weeks, the boys got the chance to play with the iPod BIG time.

Then I told the boys that mama will be reporting for work starting today.  And my Big Bunso told me that he has some special surprise for me.  “Check the iPod when you’re at the office already.”

I checked the iPod once at the office.  Good news and bad news.

Bnews–  my iPod charger connecting to the computer was not working.  the boys weren’t too easy with the cable. The damage was obviously caused by pulling on the cord instead of gripping the plug.

But the good news was —

I got a sweet message from my Big Bunso.


Funny anecdotes from tots or rather one sweet message from my little man.

Never mind the broken cable. I may ask husband to buy us a new one.

Anecdotes from tots on a father’s sad stoRy

January 30, 2013

Husband and Firstborn went for a walk.

They passed by a convenience store.

Firstborn:  How I wish I could have my first Magnum taste.

Husband invited firstborn inside the store.  He asked Firstborn to pick his Magnum.  Husband got a bottle of soft drink for himself.

Husband and Firstborn walking again.

Firstborn:  Magnum makes me so thirsty.  How I wish I have my own drinks.

Husband hasn’t opened his bottle yet.

Husband:  Firstborn, you want my Royal?

Firstborn:  Great! Thanks, Papa, ha!

Husband to himself:  I thought he would even tell me “Papa, let us share.”  He finished the Magnum and the soft drink all by himself.

Anecdotes from tots on how a seven-year-old boy interprets a salawikain (proverb)

December 19, 2013

What good is the grass if the horse is dead.

The mother and Big Bunso were reviewing for the little boy’s Aralin Panlipunan examination.  The mother read an example of a salawikain (proverb).  The Big Bunso — all honest and innocent — commented.

“If there would be no more horses, the goat — or even the cow — could always eat the grasses.”

Anecdotes from tots on the gift of foresight

November 27, 2014

Lunch last Saturday was extra special. This was the mother’s way to push her boys review for their coming monthly examinations.

Husband:  Wow!  Saturday special lunch!

Second son and Firstborn:   (echoed husband’s delight)

Big Bunso:  But special meal also means a lot of dishes to wash after.

Our Big Bunso was definitely thinking beyond the food and showed an impressive ability to predict the future.

    Super love the anecdotes. Of all the ones you posted here, I especially like the one with the broken cable pero look at the message naman. Diba??? Alam mo, buti hindi ka napikon or nainis, kasi kung nagkataon, baka na guilty ka after seeing the message 🙂

    • momiberlin

      Haha. Oo nga e. Buti na lang I saw the cable when I was at the office na, no time para mainis ng harapan. But yes, love that broken cable story.

      • ROBERT LEE

        Iniisip ko nga kung merong times na nagkamali ako ng akala tapos naunang napikon ako or nainis sa anak ko. Wala akong maalala na specific incidents, pero alam ko nangyari na iyon kasi alam kong ilang beses na akong na guilty na me times na napapatulo luha ko kapag tulog na lahat.

    I wouldn’t know what to feel with that iPad message and destroyed charger! They really are involved with technology. I used to be the same too but with books. I’d destroy the books to create a sweet message. Now I know how much of a headache I caused!

    • momiberlin

      Haha. But with the sweet message behind the battered books, i am sure you were forgiven many times.

  3. Dorothy Mae C. Torretijo

    Haha! I really love this post. You are blessed to have kids like them. May God bless you all always. Btw, I’ll be sad if my IPad charger will be broke 🙁

  4. Nilyn Matugas

    Pagka sweet talaga nila oh! Pero natawa ako, dun sa busy sa paglalaro ng PvZ! haha! Do they still play that now? lol. Never mind the broken cord, mura lang yan! haha. Sweet naman ng message e. Makakalimutan mo talaga ang cord sa message na yan! haha! Good job boys!

  5. Jessica

    Really having fun time reading these anecdotes. These are perfect documentation of how kids will grow. Daddy knows to answer well. You are adorable parents to respond with your smart kids.

  6. Dunja

    So sweet 🙂 I like how you write down all the anecdotes. Years form now, you’ll remember how precious those moments were. I really enjoyed reading it.

  7. Me-An Clemente

    I’m sure your anecdotes is something your kids will enjoy reading too as they grow older. You’ve captured the precious moments that should be cherished. Anyway out of the anecdotes that you shared, I love the reply of your husband with regards to the pixelated private part of the woman. My future husband should learn from him.

  8. Teresa Dumadag

    What caught my interest in your post is the comment on the host. My eldest is now preparing for his First Communion. I wonder what his comment will be when he tastes the host for the first time. It would be fun to read these anecdotes with them when they are older. 🙂

  9. Veronica

    This is so sweet and funny! They will really enjoy reading this when they grow up!

  10. Kylie

    I adored reading through these! Some made me giggles, but my favourite was the broken cable / sweet message.

    That’s what love is all about isn’t it? Easy forgiveness for something that is by far more important! 🙂 Keep up the gorgeous work! xx

    • momiberlin

      Thank you. And I am just so happy I was able to say some of these. I could read these again and again and everything else seems like heaven.

  11. tina

    That is so sweet of your son, I don’t think anyone would mind if their ipod was broken or damaged, just so long as there was a message from little man 🙂

    • momiberlin

      I agree as well, 100%

  12. Nica

  13. Carola

    Hahahaa love these posts. I love the one where you turned the lights on. And there they are haha. That’s awesome. I used to watch series secretly when my parents would go to sleep haha

    • momiberlin

    • momiberlin

      Thank you for enjoying the anecdotes. They are now not so much of plants vs zombies or any game. They can usually play full time when summer vacation and holidays.
