Pinoy tayo!

One of my kids was saying that her β€œFilipino friends” talk a certain way.

Me: umm Filipino ka din, anak. πŸ˜‚πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

One of my kids overheard my mom talking about Baclaran Day. She quickly interrupted and seriously (innocently) asked, β€œWhat’s that? Gay day?” πŸ˜‚πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Gianna asked our Manang to get something in the car.

G: Dun sa porchunaire.

Me: Why are you saying it like that?

G: because that’s how Tagalog works.

Out of the Blue Comments

A few days ago, Gianna and I were walking in the mall…

Mall radio: 🎡santa claus is coming to town…🎢

G: No he’s not….. because he’s DEAD.

πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ we told her that he was an actual person who loved giving gifts, but that it was a long time ago.

A few weeks ago, I was telling Gianna that we were going to wowa’s friend’s house.

G: what friend?

Me: wowa’s friend from before.

G: is she new?

Me: no, wowa’s old friend.

G: when she was thin?

πŸ˜‚ for some reason, she associates the past with me or my mom being thin. Like when we were younger and thinner. πŸ˜‚

Me: Gianna! (Surprised)

G: (innocently) is that rude?

πŸ˜‚ I guess she could tell from my reaction.

Her cousin gave her a small lipstick a few nights ago. She was riding at the very back on our way home, and it was either king sped up or hit the brakes abruptly. She suddenly said, “Daaaaad! You made my lipstick go to my tooth!”

Turon

thumb_600

A while back, Gianna was telling me she wanted to eat something.

G: Mom, I want to eat…whats that again? Churon?

Me: Do you mean turon? The one with banana?

G: No, in Disneyland. The one with Mickey and the sugar. Churon? No. Chu….ron?

I thought hard about what she liked in Disneyland.

Me: Aaah, churro! πŸ˜€

 

Just tonight, while watching a video of a family at the beach…

G: Mom I also want to go to Toron, like Kaycee and Rachel. With you and the ates and daddy.

They were in Coron. πŸ˜€

 

I enjoy hearing Giannas funny words.

MuntinluMpa (the city).

J.coB (the donut shop).

SnapchaK (the app).

CinnEMA rolls (the famous pastry).

MascARD (characters in costume).

FliP (the ant in that bug movie).

Custachios (the nuts).

Lady and the Trump (the Disney movie). πŸ˜€

Me: How bout Talula (our other turtle)? Living or non-living?

G: Non-living.

Me: What? Why?

G: Because she died!

πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ She’s right. Talula died a few months ago.

Funny February Friday

Gianna is four but sometimes she talks like she’s not. I don’t know why I even wonder when her older sisters were the same when they were her age. Just this morning, we had a conversation that went like this…

Me: Stay here. I’ll be back.

G: No. I’m scared.

Me: Scared? Why are you scared in your own house?

G: Because monsters and all those other stuff. (side note: I’m so proud of her — she has never said “stuffs” ever, not even by mistake! πŸ˜‚)

She’s been having bad dreams, and I was surprised, not by her answer, but by how she articulated it. Sometimes she bobs her head and raises her eyebrows — too much sass! πŸ˜‚

But there are other times when she is just completely adorably, wonderfully four.

On King’s birthday, Noelle mentioned that we were going to the arcade.

G: What cade?

N: Arcade, not our cade.

G: What caaaaade???

πŸ˜‚

When King talked about his oldest friend who was coming over…

K: Tito Ryan has been my friend for a long time. We were together in Kinder….

G: Egg.

Kinder egg, what have you done to my child??? πŸ˜‚

I recently taught Gianna the song that I sang to her sisters when they were babies. She now sings it as well.

G: You’re my itty bitty baby girl…Daddy’s pride, Mama’s pearl. Tiny treasure, so PATIS…

πŸ˜‚

She mispronounces words and I enjoy hearing them!

“Are we going to the ates’ RECYCLE?”

“That’s BUNNY’S Bakedown.”

“I want to have my own STEPOCOPE.”

Recently she learned to say THree with a considerable amount of saliva at first. But it’s still funder, fumbs up, and Feeyodore. πŸ˜‚

The other day, she said she was drawing a Sir and a Maam.

Me: Is mommy the maam? Do I look like her?

G: No.

Me: We’re different?

G: Yeah.

Me: Why? Why are we different?

G: Because you’re a human.

Me: Oh I’m a human. And she’s a?

G: A drawing.

πŸ˜‚ Nga naman. πŸ˜‚

Last Funny Friday for 2018

Some words, for some reason, Gianna can’t pronounce properly…

Jimastix. Her sisters have been in gymnastics for over a year and it’s still the same.

Axe. Just last night she was telling her dad to β€œaxe” the guard where a certain restaurant is.

Minja. She said it so convincingly that I β€œaxed” Noelle if it really is Minja Kids.

Pungcake House. She likes mashed potato in this restaurant.

Burger King. She recognizes many signs and logos. She wouldn’t budge though when I said it’s Chowking. Guess she can read the word king.

King of Okra. They play this game on the ipad, where they are opera singers who try to steal the spotlight.

About Anne Curtis

I asked Gianna if she recognized Anne Curtis, assuming she would still tell me it’s β€œilamlam ulam,” but instead she said it’s Shasha P. I asked her over and over again who Shasha P was, until she sang the jingle to me. πŸ˜‚

Singing in SM

We were in the department store one time, and she was singing Mr. Sun. Then she asked me if the Sun was a boy or a girl. I told her that if it’s Mr., then it’s a boy. She told me she wanted it to be a girl, and she sang Oh Mrs Sun Sun, Mrs Golden Sun. I thought that was pretty smart of her. πŸ™‚

Then she told me she needed to pee. I asked her if it’s ok that we do it at home. She said β€œno, weewee in SM.” Then she sang β€œWeewee in SM, we got it all for you.” πŸ˜‚

Despicable

Gianna has been dancing to Joy Unspeakable lately, and everytime we have guests or we’re at a party, she wants to dance. One time, she overheard a conversation on tv, where someone said β€œit’s despicable.” She said to me, β€œMom, the guy said joy unspeakable!”

How old are you?

We were at a party in my tita’s house and Gianna wanted to play with the other kids, particularly her cousin (or granddaughter really) Gabby. I told her to go ahead, but she said, β€œWait, I’m nervous,” while nervously smiling. πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸ˜‚

A conversation in the car

Danae: Huh? What?

Noelle: (sarcastically) Do you have ears?

Gianna: (seriously) Yes she has ears, see o.

Danae and her bookmark

Me: I like this bookmark (she made herself), and this and this. I like this too except for the name. Zach ng Zach. Zach-zachin kita e.

Danae: (laughing)

Me: Do you even know what Zach-zach (saksak) means?

Danae: Yeah. Plug.

Funny Fridays Is Back (for today!)

>Noelle has always been funny with words.

Someone in the family, I forget who, was singing Quest’s song entitled Saludo….

Noelle: Saludo? It’s Saluto! (with conviction)

Me: It’s Saludo, love.

Noelle: Oh, I thought it was salute-Oh.

πŸ˜€

 

>Gianna hears a catchy ad once, and she learns it right away.

Shopee to the tune of Baby Shark. Jollibee’s Linamnam ulam. And more that I can’t remember at the moment.

Months ago, she surprised me when she sang “ilamlam ulam,” and the girls explained to me that it was a Jollibee ad. Once at a super market, she saw a product with Anne Curtis’ face on the box. She excitedly pointed to it and told me, “Mom, it’s ilamlam ulam!” πŸ˜€

>One time, she suddenly mentioned that she wants to go to Florida. When I asked why, she said because of the little couple. She has seen the show’s ad on TLC, and she remembered that the family was moving to Florida. πŸ˜€

>Another time, she came to me with a piece of tape on her arm.

Gianna: Mom, Dr. Pimple changed my life!

If you know the ad of the show Dr. Pimple Popper, the doctor says that she doesn’t just pop pimples, she changes lives. πŸ˜€

>We were walking in a mall, and Gianna pointed at a picture, and said “Nico.” Apparently she knows Solenn’s husband from an ad she has seen. πŸ˜€

I guess dance moves aren’t the only things she picks up quickly. πŸ™‚

Funny Fridays – Enchanted Kingdom

Some time last year, we went to Enchanted Kingdom with the volunteers of our church.

24176964_1893608187320534_6260383686662972285_n

Upon approaching EK….

Danae and Noelle: …..screaming in excitement….. oh we’re here! i see the wizard!

Gianna: ……quiet until…….hotdogs! I see hotdogs!

She also seemed more excited to see (and eat) corn than to see (and ride) rides.

This girl and food πŸ™‚

 

We watched one of the staff try his hand on the strongman game. You know, the game where you make the bell ring by hitting the thing hard enough with a huge hammer. We left before he succeeded, so Gianna, with her sad face, said “Aw I want to win.” Maybe she was hoping the prize would be given to her. πŸ™‚

 

We left EK and proceeded to join some friends at a restaurant. We parked and started getting ready to go down.

Gianna: ….looked at me as I was trying to fix my hair…..Your hair’s a mess. You look like a Yaya (Nanny).

I laughed so hard. I don’t know where she got the idea that a nanny typically has messy hair. She didn’t seem like she was trying to insult me, but just stating her opinion. Or maybe she was urging me to fix my hair. πŸ™‚

Funny Fridays, My Kids

Gianna turned “free”

Ever since Mother’s Day this year, Gianna likes to greet us. She greeted my mom and I everyday for the whole month of May practically. She would greet King too haha! And then she learned to greet him Happy Father’s Day in June. When we’d have get-togethers or attend birthday parties, she would always be excited to sing and blow the candle. I think she even requested to blow the candle one time (maybe more), saying “For me, for me.” My birthday is exactly a month before hers, so she was happy greeting me everyday, even after we told her that it was almost her birthday. She did learn to say that her birthday is on “Ogwest twewv.”

She’d also known for a while that she was turning three. One time in June maybe, she told me that she’s “turning free.” I said, “oh you’re turning free…yeah.” She smiled, looked at me and said, “I’m not Free-ya.” She remembered her friend and VBC dance teammate Fria, hahaha. She still says Free today.

August 11th, we told her that her birthday is tomorrow. So on the day of, when we greeted her happy birthday, she told me “My birthday is tomorrow.” Haha. It didn’t take much convincing. She was happy to be the birthday girl. We did pass by another baby’s 1st birthday party in the morning, but she had no problem “sharing” her day. Not a diva, my girl. πŸ™‚

The girls are always excited to spend time with their cousins, and Gianna is no different. Oh the screams, when the family (both sides) arrived. She was so hyper that evening! Like extra extra hyper. She was also so excited to wear her princess dress. Two weeks before, she planned to wear her Minnie Mouse costume for her birthday party. But since she already wore it that week (just at home, no occasion), and I saw that she didn’t match her birthday set-up, I brought out 2 old flower girl gowns (Danae’s) and made her choose. When I went into the bathroom, she told me that she picked the Cinderella one, which is the blue one. I asked one of her sisters to help her out, while I prepared outside. She came out wearing the Belle dress! So adorable. ❀ And so like her. Sometimes she says no, but she actually means yes. She says one thing, but actually means another.

Thinking about the family get-together 2 weeks before, I asked Gianna what she wanted to eat on her birthday. Her immediate and consistent answer was “CAKE.” Later on she also said pasta. And then as I asked her what kind of pasta she wanted, or if she also wanted chicken, she mentioned “HOPIA.” Hahaha. There was indeed cake and hopia on her birthday. πŸ™‚

20708198_1776898862324801_5410191435831637905_n
that’s hopia in the cupcake stand. and that’s the closest to the pink cake she wanted. she wanted a strawberry flavored one, but i doubt she’d enjoy eating it. she just really wanted a pink cake. hehehe πŸ™‚
