This post is inspired by my friend Berlin of MomiBerlin.com. We knew each other since earlier this year and have met 4 times since then. I like her because she’s easy to get along with and kind. A mother of 4, Berlin loves to write about her experiences as a mom, her advocacies and the things that she learns from workshops and seminars she attended to. We call her “supermom”, because she just is a supermom! I can’t imagine how she managed everything while here I am having a hard time and I only have 1 kid! *laughs hysterically*.

I like her posts about anecdotes from tots. It’s wonderful how little kids can make us smile, feel embarrassed and realize so many things just by the simple words they tell us, it’s just amazing! So today, I’m gonna try to remember a few funny anecdotes from Nate.
Of course, first of all, the famous prayer story that got so many FB likes! lol!
I was in such a hurry while trying to finish my dinner quickly in order not to be late…
Nate: Mama, pray usa^ (Mama, pray first).
Me: I shyly smiled and prayed. (Well, I was more of embarrassed, actually, haha!)
Nate: “Mama, you have headache?”
Me: “Yes, Nate. Please pray for mama, my head is too painful”.
Nate: “*closes eyes* Lord, thank you for mama’s head, Amen!”
How are you VS. How Old are you?
Me: Nate, when people ask you ‘how old are you?’, that’s when you say you’re two. But when they ask you ‘how are you?’, they’re asking how you’re doing, you can say, “I’m Ok”.
Dane: “That’s right Nate.”
Me: “ok, let’s try, “Hi Nate, how are you?”
Nate: I’m Okay and TWO!!!!
Me trying to orient Nate with different tastes:
Me: “Neozep is…?”
Me: “No, bitter… pait. Kalamansi is…?”
Me: “no, it’s aslom. Sour! Chili is?”
Nate: “spicy!!! (Finally got it right, lol)”
Me: “Chocolate is?”
Nate: “YUMMY!!!! (We laughed) SWEET!”
Me: “Time to eat!”
Nate: “What is that, mama?”
Nate: “Mama, give me SKABETI.”
Nate suddenly awaken from a deep sleep…
Nate: “mamaaaaaa” (wailing)
Me: “I’m coming!”
Nate: “Huhuhu” (He’s not stopping, lol)
Me: “Why are you crying? Stop crying and tell me what happened?”
Nate: “I iwan” (He meant, I was left alone)
Me: “Sino’ng nang-iwan?” (Who left you?)
Nate: “IKAAAAAWWW!!!” (you!) “waaaa!” (still crying, haha!)
Me: “Oh, sorry. Ninaog ko, nikaon ko” (I went don’t to eat).
Nate: “Don’t kaon!!!” huhuhu! (Don’t eat!)
That was such a funny conversation! His sentences are mixed up sometimes because he knows English, Filipino and Bisaya, lol. He stopped crying after he got his dede (my milk).
I know there are more, I’m pretty sure! But these are what I can remember for now, lol!
