My kids are getting wittier, their humor surprises me sometimes.
The other day, Patch must have noticed the greater time I spent offline than on:
Patch: Ma, bakit di ka na masyadong nag-cocomputer?
iMom: Ummm. Wala, pagod lang ako lately. At nakakatamad din.
Patch (wide-eyed): Who are you?? And what have you done to the Computer Addict??
Very funny! I almost fell off my chair, laughing.
On another day, I was working on my Christmas list. I thought I’d ask my kids what they wanted. That would make my life so much easier, and theirs happier. While it took a while for Patch to come up with hers, V almost instantly blabbed out her wish list.
iMom (speechless and wide-eyed): …
VGood: Joke lang!
iMom (still speechless and exaggeratedly wide-eyed, pretending to look hurt): …
VGood: Joke lang nga! But I really like a Baby Alive. And a bike. And the Ponyville.
This is the same V who told me not so long ago that she loves her dad more than me, and that I should not feel hurt.
I also almost fell off my chair. But I wasn’t laughing.
Should I consider retiring from mommyhood and getting a Subway franchise? Maybe I’d do better with that one. 😛
