Toilet & Bath for Matt & Kyle, originally uploaded by gratitude.

Something happened here. To continue…

My hands were clammy. I felt my tummy in knots. I couldn’t relax at all as I sat there on the first row with Jerry. My kid in Nursery2, being a finalist in the Voices of Children poem recitation contest, was about to compete with the rest of the finalists.

He was the 4th to recite. Finalist number 1 recited softly and sheepishly even as the mom moved closer by the stage to give moral support. Finalist number 2 or 3 didn’t go up the stage at all. Oh no!

Jake was next. I saw him peer from the side of the stage as if looking for our faces in the audience. We waved at him. He flashed a big smile upon seeing us and then he walked up the stage…

Me: Hmmm… *kiss, kiss*…*hug, hug*…(Smothering my 4 year old son)
Me: Why is my Jake so cute?…*presses cheek*
Me: Why is your skin so soft, hmm?
Me: Mama wants to hug you… always.
Me: Cute cute cute….
Me: This one is cute (presses cheeks)… this one is cute (pats his tooshie)…and this too (points to his male organ).
Jake: No! That’s not cute.
Me: Huh? If it’s not cute, then what?
Jake: Big.
Me: Oh!

And then in my peripheral view, I saw my husband laughing.

Buwan ng Wika
Jake, Andre, DD

To celebrate the last school day for the Buwan ng Wika (month of the Filipino language), Jake wore Barong Tagalog (national costume for men) to school this morning. My crazy imagination gave me a visual of how my boy would look like in about 20-25 years, when he decides to wear the same type of outfit for his wedding. Eep… Erase! Erase!

So anyway…

There may be a high percentage of non-Filipino students in his school, but, to the delight of parents, that didn’t stop them from singing Filipino songs and dancing to Filipino music. 🙂 They even re-enacted the “bayanihan” spirit where an assigned group of high school students jointly carried on their shoulders a hut made of nipa around the gym.

It was a short affair that lasted for about 2 hours max, just enough time for me to get back to work right after. To cap the morning session, Jake’s class had a feast of all-Filipino food that the parents were requested to bring. We contributed pansit palabok, heheh… Is that even Filipino? On our way home, just like the rest of the mommies, I managed to bring pieces of budbud and bibingka that I wasn’t able to finish.

In the car after a trip to the mall….

ME: (Tapping Matt’s knee as he was listening to his iPod) Matt, don’t drink Jake’s Chamyto alright? Please tell Kyle…

MATT: Yes, Ma…

ME: Did you hear me Kyle? (Just making myself clear.)

KYLE: Yes Ma. (goes back to listening to his iPod)

ME: Ok… If you want to, you ask Jake’s permission.

JAKE: But, but… I will say no!

I told the youngest to share what he has as long as the elder brothers ask his permission… but I realized he sure knows how to fend for himself.

Earlier this afternoon, while walking in the mall between my two elder boys…

ME: Ugh, I feel my tummy jiggling as I walk *chuckles*

Kyle laughed but Matt chose to say something:

MATT: Yeah Ma, I see it!

ME: Che! Boosit. 😛

And all three of us started laughing. Sometimes, a little white lie goes a long way, I figured. 😀

Jake, Matt, Kyle – eating mami noodles and halo-halo with gusto
