My boys’ “Anecdotes from Tots” is now in its 17th installment. And as I retype everything, I could not help but giggle a little, sometimes laugh hard, and even a few moments shed a tear or two. My children are growing up real fast, and they even regard themselves like grown ups already. Will I hear more of those witty and surprising remarks from them? Perhaps I need to wait for our little man to grow up some more.
Anecdotes from tots on Three Wishes
May 19, 2014
Often, we would walk as we go to church to attend mass. This gives us time to hold hands and bond with our boys.
Snippets of conversation with my eight-year-old, and they do fascinate me a lot!
Big Bunso: Mama.
Momi Berlin: Yes, Big Bunso.
Big Bunso: If you will have three wishes, what would be your wishes?
Momi Berlin: Hmmm… you first, Big Bunso.
Big Bunso: Ok. My first wish would be …. I want us to be incredibly wealthy.
Momi Berlin: Rich? Why, do you consider us poor?
Big Bunso: Not really. We just don’t have that much money to buy everything and anything we want. We are not extremely wealthy.
Momi Berlin: Ow, ok. Your second wish then?
Big Bunso: I hope our house would not easily accumulate dirt.
Momi Berlin: (This then made me realize that the boys hate cleaning the house). Why is that?
Big Bunso: So that I need not brush the carpet everyday and scrub the toilet. Cleaning is a real bore.
Momi Berlin: I see. And your third wish?
Big Bunso: Now that I’m incredibly rich, I would build a church and also a hospital.
Momi Berlin: (Wider smile. my eight-year-old boy knows how to give back. Thank you, God!)
