Double dose of funny quips

In this blog, there’s a category I dedicated to V called “V Quips”. It’s all about her witty and funny remarks.

Well, she doesn’t stand alone now in the funnies category. Nate’s vocabulary and speech talents have grown in the recent months by leaps and bounds.

Here’s a couple of the duo’s recent riot lines.

~~~

V, memorizing a Bible verse for Christian Education test. She quotes a verse in Isaiah, with feelings and actions: “All the grasses may wither and the flowers may fall, but your word shall remain forever.” (imagine her dramatic way of talking and acting.)

She pauses, with an discontented look. “Hmmmm, you know, Mom, it should be: All the grasses may wither and the flowers may fall, but your word shall remain for all. That sounds better, right? It should rhyme…”

(I posted this on my Facebook profile, but I wanted to share it here.)

I hear Nate getting back from his afternoon walk with the neighborhood kids. He races up the stairs and into our bedroom where I was napping. With twinkling eyes and that adorable smile (this little boy will break a lot of hearts), he gives me two gumamela flowers:

Nate to me: “For you! Put it on your ears… I know you love pink… Don’t let it die!”

And the punchline, with a half-wink (he still can’t do a full wink): “Papa never give(s) you flowers…”

All together now: *aawwwwww*

Enter, Miss V to burst the bubble… “You know,  sioti (little brother), Mom’s favorite color is blue. She hates pink.”

The Miracle of Wires

Patch got wired during the summer of 2008.

Back then, she had “very few” teeth, because the dentist had to do series extraction. She pulled out the temporary teeth to make room for the permanent ones. The dentist had to resort to series extractions because Patch has small facial bones. Her jaw and mandibles were too small, limiting the space for her teeth. If she did not get braces, she will get crowded teeth (like I do).

Thankfully, her permanent teeth grew out in time, with the help of the wires. Before we knew it, she had a complete set of teeth (except for the third molars). So, fast forward to today, here are her new set of choppers –

Hopefully, the wires come off in summer of 2010.

But guess who will be needing wires real soon?

I am just glad we have a great family orthodontist. So there won’t be any need for a Plano cosmetic dentist in the future, I need to start working with the her on the next client. Who’s the next client?
