Iya’s yaya will be leaving us for a few weeks to vote and spend her vacation in her home town. She said her goodbyes and left. Iya ran after her and said..
Iya: Yaya kapag nasa road ka magsstop ka kapag may car ha? kasi baka masagasaan ka.
I was taking a break from my computer and decided to give Iya a hug. We were lying down on our bed and I was hugging her tight.
Me: Ganito nalang tayo forever.
Iya: Hindi na ba tayo kakain?
Me: Oo hindi na, ganito nalang tayo hanggang mamaya.
Iya: Hindi pwede! mamatay tayo!
Me: Mamatay agad?! Hindi ba pwedeng magugutom muna?
Iya: Hindi pwede na mag hug lang!
Me: Love is all we need.
Iya: Why? Hindi naman food ang akap eh. Mamatay tayo! Tama na yan nanay magcomputer ka nalang.
Iya when she was still 5 year’s old..
I was driving us home and we got talking about what they have been doing every day while I’m in the office.
Nezel: Ate si Iya ayaw sumunod sa akin tapos kapag pinilit ko umiiyak!
Me: Bakit sinasaktan ka ba ni yaya? bakit ka umiiyak?
Me: Nezel totoo ba sinasaktan mo si Iya?! Iya totoo ba? Sabihin mo yung totoo.
Iya: Yes! Sinaktan nya yung buhay ko!
Me: kaya ako nandito para maghugas ng pwet eh
Just last year, she’s 7
We were talking about cutting paper bunnies on a piece of wrapping paper from Juliet..
Julia: pareho sila ng damit nitong bunny na ito.
Me: Bakit magkaiba naman sila na bunny ah.. yung isa nakapikit yung mata, yung isa nakadilat.
Julia: hindi nanay, pareho sila ng pagkatao!
Me: (laughing) pagkatao?
Julia: oo iisa silang dalawa.
I mean who uses the word “pagkatao” and knows the real meaning of it?
