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! 😀

 

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. 😀

 

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). 😀

Funny Gianna

215635-672x450-Little-turtleIt’s exam week and as I was reviewing Gianna for Science, this conversation transpired….

Me: How about the spoon? Is it living or non-living?

G: Non-living.

Me: What about the electric fan?

G: Non-living.

Me: Puppy?

G: Living.

Me: How about a robot?

G: Non-living.

Me: Ok why?

G: Because it has a battery.

Me: Okay, how about Treasure?

G: Non-living.

Me: Huh? Oh I meant Treasure the turtle (our pet).

G: Living!

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

G: Non-living.

Me: What? Why?

G: Because she died!

😂😂😂 She’s right. Talula died a few months ago.

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 “axe” the guard where a certain restaurant is.

Minja. She said it so convincingly that I “axed” 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 “ilamlam 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. 😂

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. 🙂

Then she told me she needed to pee. I asked her if it’s ok that we do it at home. She said “no, weewee in SM.” Then she sang “Weewee in SM, we got it all for you.” 😂

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 “it’s despicable.” She said to me, “Mom, 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, “Wait, I’m nervous,” while nervously smiling. 🤷🏽‍♀️😂

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.

😀

 

>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!” 😀

>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. 😀

>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. 😀

>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. 😀

I guess dance moves aren’t the only things she picks up quickly. 🙂

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 🙂

 

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. 🙂

 

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. 🙂

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. 🙂

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. 🙂

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 🙂
Funny Fridays, My Kids

Eeeew….

One time last month, Noelle and I were eating breakfast together, while the two other girls were still asleep (I love one-on-one moments with my girls).

Noelle: How come I’m the only one in the family who doesn’t like sauce?

Me: Yeah, there are people who like it, there are people who don’t. Remember my old blog about our preferences in eating our hotdog? We’re all different. You ate yours without bread, nothing on it. Danae ate hers with bread and just mayo. I ate mine with bread and just ketchup, since they didn’t have mustard (and I would have much preferred tomato ketchup). Daddy ate his with bread, ketchup and mayo, but he likes everything.

Noelle: What do you mean he likes everything?

Me: Like if there was pickle relish, he would be okay with putting pickle relish.

Noelle: Eeeew.

Me: Haha. But that’s what makes Daddy a good missionary. He can do those things. He can eat anything.

Noelle: I can’t do that. I’m picky.

Me: Hehehe yeah. But, Noelle, what if God tells you to go on missions?

Noelle: (smiling and without batting an eyelash) I’ll bring lots of food.

Hahahaha. We got a laugh out of that one. But more so, I was blessed hearing that she is still willing to obey God despite her unwillingness to eat certain food. Ready to go for God, despite her reluctance to try the unfamiliar. God bless her heart. ❤

Conversations with Gianna 2

My dad used to call Danae his pretty rosebud.

My mom started calling Gianna the same a few months ago. She would say “Good morning, pretty rosebud!” Gianna barely replies. One evening, Gianna poured out my mom’s medicines onto the floor. My mom got angry and scolded her. She cried, I came home, that was that (she apologized late the next day). The next morning, Gianna went into her room….

Wowa: (being stern — she hadn’t apologized yet) Who are you?

Gianna: Pretty Rosebud.

Wowa: (to me, when she was telling me about it that day) Ano na lang gagawin ko? Marunong sumagot.

Hahahah. Many times she does not respond to “pretty rosebud.”. But this time, she used it to her advantage.

 

These days, when my mom asks her…..

Wowa: You’re my pretty?

Gianna: Gianna. Pretty Gianna.

She told me that she’s just Gianna, not Rosebud. Haha.

 

One time in my in-laws’ house….

Gianna: Ssssh…he’s sleeping. (pertaining to King’s brother-in-law, while moving quietly)

Kuya Larry: (Shifts position)

Gianna: (gets scared and scurries away) He’s moving, he’s moving!

This was just relayed to me, but it cracked me up so much. I could imagine her face, haha.

 

Gianna loves my friend’s dogs, friendly Shih Tzus named Sky and OB.

At a party in their house, she was beside their food bowls, encouraging the dogs to eat and drink. She left that area when I told her to. But she continually played with them. At one point, while Mommy was busy chatting with the ladies, she asked the Yayas (also her favorite, maybe because they accommodated her so much hahaha) for some cereal.

Yaya: You want this cereal? The chocolate one? (because she chose the cheerios)

Gianna: No. (I was surprised by her answer when my friend was telling me this story, because she likes chocolate cereal.) THAT’S DOG FOOD.

Hahahaha. The chocolate cereal did resemble dog food.

 

One time in Kids Church….

Gianna: Mommy, I want that.

Me: Which one, love?

Gianna: I want a skirt just like that, mommy.

She was pointing at a tutu worn by another little girl. She impressed me with her complete sentence. She’s into “princess dresses” these days, even just in the house.

 

One time, while we drove away from the house….

Gianna: Is that Raerae’s house?

Me: No.

Gianna: Whose is it?

Me: Somebody else’s.

Gianna: How bout our house?

Me: That’s not our house. Remember? What’s the color of our house?

Gianna: Orange!

Me: No, it’s brown and white.

Gianna: I want our house a pink color.

Me: No love. Our house will never be pink.

Gianna: I can’t?

Me: Yeah, you can’t.

Gianna: Awww.

She loves pink, haha.

 

Gianna can be demanding.

Gianna: I want to watch your laptop, mommy.

Me: You have to ask me nicely.

Gianna: Get your laptop, mommy.

Me: What’s the magic word?

Gianna: Laptop.

She would say the subject of her sentence every time I asked for the magic word — whether it was milk, the tablet, water. Thank God she now knows that PLEASE is the magic word.

 

They like to watch this Filipina girl singing on a talent show.

Me: (singing due to LSS) This girl is on fiyerrr….

Gianna: No, it’s FAYA mommy.

That’s how the girl sings it on the video.

 

Some of her funny words…..

“Marco Folo.”

“Des-pa-si-to lalalala Falito.” (we stopped listening to the song when we found out what the song meant, promise!)

Baby suits. “Mommy, can I wear my baby suits?”

“It’s taking forever, mom.”

When I tell her to sit down, she says “I am,” even when she’s sitting where she’s not supposed to.

“Ba-toh, ba-toh tink! Papell, ba-toh, tink!”

 

While we were having lunch last week…

Gianna was playing beside me, and she was kind of laughing and looking at the table behind us. She said to me, “Love love pipol, mommy.”

Awww, she has said that a few other times. She may have a heart for people. ❤

 

Gianna is indeed a delight to everyone around her. We don’t want her to grow up, but she is turning 3 tomorrow! Happy birthday, bingky boo. We love you! ❤

Conversations with Gianna 1

We have this electric racquet that kills mosquitoes. One time….

Me: Sit down. I’m killing mosquitoes.

Gianna: Ok mommy. Don’t kill me mommy.

 

Still on killing mosquitoes…

Me: dzzzztt (joking, pretending to get her with the racquet)

Gianna: I’m a mosquito, mommy?

 

Gianna likes to join in on conversations.

Danae and Noelle: Bla bla bla…..Mishka (a friend of theirs) did bla bla bla

Gianna: (pops up on their window upon hearing Mishka)……Mooska, Mickey Mouse!

Disney Jr’s Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, for those who don’t get it.

 

Gianna was trying to get on the couch, pushing Danae.

Danae: Say excuse meeee.

Gianna: Excuse me.

Danae: Without pushiiiing.

Gianna: Without pushing.

 

Out of the blue…

Gianna: I’m a little kid, mommy.

Me: Yes you’re a little kid.

Gianna: Because… I’m a pipol.

 

Also out of the blue….

Gianna: Are you big?

Me: Yeah I’m big. Are you small?

Gianna: Yeah. I’m the bebe. I’m the little one.

 

At a restaurant….

Me: Gianna, come down. You might hit your chin on the thing.

Gianna: This one? The glass, mommy?

Yes, the thing was indeed the glass partition.

 

On wonder woman….

Gianna: It’s wonder wumen mommy. That’s not for me.

We didn’t let her or Noelle watch it. We told her it’s not for kids.

 

While walking in sm, she was holding King, walking ahead of me….

King: (talking to me) Call your mom.

Gianna: (looking back to me) Moooooom.

 

Hahahah. ❤
