Hello, everybody! Happy second day of May! I hope summer is treating you well. Sobrang init kasi. Kasing init ng ulo ng mga tao sa social media! Hahahaha! In my desperate attempt to help cool things down in the internet world, here’s a Kolokoy Household post!
Do you remember the concern I wrote in a previous Kolokoy Household post? Mama kept on singing her own version of nursery rhymes. But apparently, I have a bigger problem! Itago natin siya sa
pangalang... BOYET! =))
FIVE LITTLE MONKEYS
Gone are the days when our playlist is composed of the latest hits of Maroon 5. Our house now echoes all kinds of nursery rhymes. One time, Boyet was singing along Five Little Monkeys while we were all watching it on YouTube.
Boyet: Five Little Monkeys jumping on the bed... One fell off and BROKE his head...
Me: Ang morbid ng version mo. Hahahaha!
Me: BROKE his head agad? Sumabog utak nung mga unggoy? BUMPED lang, Tay. Nabukulan lang sa video o.
Zayne’s pediatrician advised us to give her Paracetamol after her vaccine over the weekend. I am exclusively breastfeeding Zayne that’s why I have been trying very hard not to give her anything orally except for my milk. She was agitated yesterday even if she didn’t have fever. She was probably in pain after having two shots of vaccine. I tried giving her Tempra, but she threw it up! Since her temperature was normal, we stopped giving her Tempra. Kaso, sinermonan pa rin siya ng Tatay nya.
Anak, huwag mong isusuka ang Tempra...
Hindi mo naman ‘yan iinumin permanently e...
TEMPRA-ry lang naman ‘yan!
Zayne’s pediatrician also happened to be the pediatrician of her Ninang Abby’s kids. We were all surprised to see them last Saturday at the doctor’s clinic. Abby and I were talking while Boyet was carrying Zayne.
Abby: Teh, ano nga sa Tagalog ang INQUISITIVE?
Me: Hmmmmm... Kapag INQUISITIVE kasi parang gusto niyang malaman lahat ng bagay e. Tapos tanong ng tanong. So baka MATANONG?
Abby: E ano sa Tagalog ang CURIOUS?
Me: Ahmmmmm... Tay, ano sa Tagalog ang CURIOUS?
Hahahahahaha! Nag-Google ako. CURIOUS = mausisa, usisero/usisera, mausyoso. So, close to TSISMOSA nga! Bwahahahaha!!!
Last night, I was teaching Zayne the phonetic alphabet while we were watching a YouTube video. I let Zayne watch YouTube for as long as she has someone watching with her. I also told Mama and her Yaya to interact with her while she’s watching. What we usually do is we repeat whatever is being shown. Anyway, let’s go back to my story. Haha! The video goes something like this – “Letter F. What’s that? Oh, that’s a fish! F-F-Fish! And who is that? That’s Franchesca! F-F-Franchesca!”
Me: Zayne, that is the letter F... F-F-Fish! Wow! One of your names also starts with the letter F. Frances!
Boyet: Wow! Tatay’s name also starts with the letter F...
Alam niyo ‘yung feeling na gusto mong magmura kaso hindi pwede kasi maririnig ng anak mo?! Ganun e! -_-
Tutal naman uso ang usapang eleksiyon. Hindi papatalo si Boyet. Inis na inis kasi siya sa mga maraming kotse tapos nakaparada naman sa kalye. Kapag siya daw ang naging mayor, ganito daw ang solusyon niya.
Kapag nakaparada ka sa right of way tapos nagasgasan ang kotse mo, ikaw pa ang dapat magbayad sa nakagasgas sa’yo. Kasalanan mo na bumili ka ng kotse tapos wala kang garahe. Wala ka dapat sa kalye, kaya kasalanan mo na nagasgasan ka. Hindi na ’yun kasalanan ng nakabangga sa’yo.
INTENSE ’NO?! ETO MAS MALUPIT!!!
Gagawa daw siya ng grupo na manghuhuli ng mga nakaparada sa kalye. Isa lang ang trabaho ng grupong ’yun. MAGNAKAW NG GULONG! May quota daw. Mas maraming gulong, mas malaki ang sweldo! Madadala na ang mga walang garahe, lalago pa daw ang negosyo ng gulong!
Kaya 9 years from now, huwag po nating kalimutan! Kung sa traffic ikaw ay buwisit na buwisit, BOYET ANDRADE, sa balota mo ay isingit! :p
Have a great week ahead! :)
