Funny Fridays – Enchanted Kingdom

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

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. 🙂

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. ❤

Gianna: What’s wong, mommy? (with her kit in hand)

Me: Hmmm?

Gianna: Is your tummy penful?

Other times, she says “I need Madiktuffins ektoscopt.”

 

One time, we were lined up waiting for the elevator. People were passing or lining up as well, and she said, “It’s pipols, mommy. Plenty pipols.”

 

Sometimes whenshe begs me for something, part of her act is to say “pleeyus?” instead of the usual please.

 

Gianna surprises and makes us all laugh when she blurts out words we don’t expect.

“Yaaaas!” with such excitement.

“I’m so bored.” with a sigh and shoulders slumping.

“What’s the deal, man?”

 

If you ask her who her mommy is, she says “Tita Phoebe.”

 

 

LAUGH-A-MONDAYS, My Kids

Handsome!

A few weeks ago, King ran into an old acquaintance.

In the car….

King: He’s ______.

Me: Oh, the son of __________?

King: Yup. He’s married and has kids.

Me: What?! Really? He looks so young! (he looked preppy, like he was in high school or college)

Danae: And handsome!

Haha. Of course she noticed and wasn’t ashamed to say it.

 

Me: Yeah, he is.

Danae: Mom, maybe he uses DOVE. That’s why he looks so young.

Hahahaha. Okay. 🙂

Noelle on Danae’s Birthday

When we celebrated Danae’s 8th birthday with their cousins last month, they blessed Danae with a very nice hand-me-down violin and a new flute. The girls were so excited with the gifts!

Noelle: Ate, show mommy your FLOOP.

Hahaha cuuuuute! Floop, flute, whatever! 🙂

 

We celebrated also with my mom the following day. We had a whole day affair, and ended it with dinner at a Korean restaurant. Noelle fell asleep in the car, and slept through dinner as well. Back in the car…..

King: Thanks for dinner mom!

Me: Thanks for dinner mom!

Danae: Thanks for dinner wowa!

Noelle: (pouty) Thanks for not inviting me.

Awwwww, poor Noelle. She woke up by the time we left the restaurant! 🙂

LAUGH-A-MONDAYS, My Kids

Whiny Whiny

Last week, my mom bought the girls something from the mall. Of course, not two minutes later, they were already arguing about it.

Me: Stop whining and stop fighting about it.

Noelle: I waaaaant.

Me: Be thankful. Share. Would it have been better if Wowa did not buy at all?

Noelle: (with her cute pouty face) It would be better if she bought two, one for each of us.

Haha. Smart girl. 🙂

Noelle-isms in Dahilayan

A few weeks ago in Forest Park, Dahilayan, Bukidnon, Danae discovered some very cheap toys at the cafe there. She, her sister, and their friend Julio bought quite a few. During one of the lunches….

Noelle: Mom, where’s my…where’s my…CHEETO?

Uhm, cheetah, anak. 🙂

One other time, they were watching Disney Jr in our hotel room. They had not seen Jake and the Neverland Pirates for months, since we decided we would only let our kids watch videos at home, but Noelle still remembered the story. Mr. Smee had a special pet in that episode.

Noelle: Oh I know that. It’s a CAMILLE.

Uhm, chameleon anak. 🙂

The girls are getting better and better in speaking Filipino, and Noelle tells me some translations that she knows. I can’t remember exactly what she said, but when she said the word SAYANG, somebody (maybe me? not really sure) asked her what she thought it meant.

PERSON: What does sayang mean, Noelle?

Noelle: It means OH MAN!

Hahaha, actually to me it means “too bad!” but “oh man” works too. 🙂
