In the classroom, while teaching my student Jacob how to write his name properly.
I showed him my middle finger with cut:

Me: Jacob look oh, there’s blood.
Jacob: Why Teacher?
Me: I accidentally cut myself knina while arranging the scissors there.
Jacob: Tsktsk. Careful dapat.

Oo nga naman….

My 3-year-old cousin was attempting to play with my laptop so I immediately stopped her:

Me: Frey, no ha. Don’t play with my laptop ha. Hindi ‘yan laruan.
Frey: Titingin q lang naman eh. (But she kept on touching the scroll pad).
Me: Ay Frey, no di ba sbi q? Susumbong kita sa pulis.
Frey immediately got the DVD remote control and pretended it was a phone.
Frey: Hello pulis! Wag aq huli mo ahh, siya ahh (pointing to me).

Aba! At inunahan pa q tumawag sa pulis:-)

My cousins Chloe (6 years old), Frey (3 years old) and JM (5 years old) were sitting outside of our lola’s house with my mom. Frey saw Chloe sat like a boy with open legs so she called the attention of my mom:

Frey; Juti (Josie), tingin mo si Wiwi (Chloe), pangit ng upo.
My mom: Oo nga, di ba hindi ganon maupo ang mga girls?
Frey: Aq hindi ganun upo. Ganito lang (and she carefully crossed her legs like a real fine-lady)
Chloe: Hindi kaya ako nakabukaka!
JM: Lagi yang si Chloe Tita. Laging nakabukaka. Panlalake lang yan ganyang upo di ba? Ako nga panlalake upo q eh.
My mom: (talking to herself) Eh bket, lalake ka ba?

Ay sus! Even her classmates also noticed Elysse’s being a cry-baby.

After their recess, Jacob went to the washroom to wash his hands. Dainielle came after him and jokingly pushed Jacob:

Jacob: Dainielle stop it! You fall in line.
Dainielle: (laughs and kept pushing Jacob).
Jacob: Dainielle no. You wait for your turn.
Dainielle: (still pushing Jacob while laughing).
Jacob: Dainielle stop! It’s not funny!

Ay! Nagalit ang mama!

Jacob was a bit unruly in class today. He was so playful and was very ‘tamad’ to study. I asked him to trace his alphabet but he just drew lines on the tracing paper. So I decided to just have him sit on the big mat and we’ll just do the ABC flashcard. Instead of answering my questions, he just hugged me tight and said:

Jacob to me: Nanggigil ako sa’yo!

And then he kissed and hugged me again.

Aww! Sweet! The perks of being a preschool teacher:-)

My 3-year-old nephew came all the way from Aklan yesterday to visit us. He found a playmate in JM. While they were playing this afternoon, JM saw a brochure of different toys. I saw JM looking at the picture of Barbie so I teased him;

Me: Hala ka tlaga! Baket Barbie yang tinitingnan mo?

Jm: Hindi kaya!

Me: Eh kanina ka pa titig na titig kay Barbie oh! Wacky, si JM gustong bilhin si Barbie hindi yung cars!

Wacky: (nakasimangot) Wag Barbie! Bad yun. Bakla un!

Me: Ayan kasi JM! Mapagbadya ka!

My 3-year-old niece Chesca offered a bubble gum to my 3-year-old cousin Frey.

My mom: Ay Cheka wag mo siyang bigyan niyan. Baka malulon niya.

Chesca: Wag na lang pala, hindi ka pala marunong nito eh.

Frey: Arunong ako niyan, di ba Juti (Josie)?

My mom: Hindi ka marunong kumain niyan di ba?

Frey: Inde, arunong ako akain niyan.

Chesca: Alam q na lola, bibigyan q na lang siya nito pero tuturuan ko muna siya kumain.

—-facing frey:

Chesca: Ganito kain niyan ah, nguya mo muna tapos pag ayaw mo na, itapon mo na ha. Wag mo lulon ha.

Frey: Arurunong nga aq niyan! (and grabbed the gum from Chesca)

During the Lenten Season, while we were having ‘Pabasa’ in Nanay sitang’s house, my 6-year-old cousin Sai was playing with his playmates outside. My mom called him because he was already all sweaty.

Mama: Bakit ba ang hilig hilig mong makipaglaro dun sa mga bata na ‘yun? Tingnan mo nga parang hindi sila naliligo (my mom has a tendency to be matapobre sometimes)

Sai: Eh magaganda naman sila Tita eh.

Mama: Ano’ng maganda dun eh tingnan mo nga yung mga buhok nila ni hindi nasusuklay?

Sai: Akala mo lang ‘yun Tita. Pag tiningnan mo sila ng mabuti makikita mo maganda sila. Crush ko nga yung isa dun eh, si Nicole.

Ayun na! Beauty is in the eye of the beholder talaga:-)

Last Monday, April 12, was the start of the summer class in Escuela Legarda. We had one student from the previous school year who joined us again for the summer class. Her name’s Chesca. Since she’s attending big school na next school year, her tita wants to train her na to stay in the room without any guardians. But since Chesca’s not used to it, she cried and cried the first time her tita went outside.

While I was asking her to finish her work first before she could see her tita, this was our conversation:

Chesca: Cge na Teacher, please, please! Papasukin mo na Tita ko!
Me: Di ba we told you na before that you have to be prepared na for big school? Kaya your tita has to stay outside na.

Chesca: and namimiss q na si Mamex eh (she calls her tita, ‘mamex’). Miss na miss q na si Mamex.

Me: Eh kasama mo naman siya lagi sa house di ba?

Chesca: Opo nga pero namimiss q na talaga siya eh. Papasukin mo na siya please!

Me: Cge, finish your work first then I’ll let you see your tita na.

Chesca: Dali na let’s do this na para matapos na tayo!

***i could only sigh***

My 7-year old cousin Sai kept bugging me to create a Facebook account for him. Once he asked me, I answered yes. But then he asked me again after 30 minutes and I was in the middle of writing my article, so…

Sai: Te, gawa mo ko ng facebook ha.

me: (half-irritatingly shook my head in disagreement without looking at him)

Sai: Ang bilis mo naman magbago ng isip Te.

Ayun! Natawa na lang aq!

Si Frey (2 years old) naglalakad sa street namin papunta sa bahay ng lola ko. Kasama niya si Mama. Nadaanan nila ang kapitbahay naming kung tawagin nila ay Jang Geum (somewhere between 30-40 years old) sa kadahilanang hindi ko alam:

Frey: Maya na lang ha.

Jang Geum: O cge okay lang.

(Bumalik ulet si Frey)

Frey: Wala ta na talaga pela?

Jang Geum: Wala na eh.

Jang Geum: Bibili kasi ako ng pagkain namin eh. Hindi pa kasi kami kumakain eh.

Frey: Wala pa tasi ako pela eh. Maya na lang ha. Biday q tau maya ah.

Si Frey, as usual nasa bahay na naman namin. Sa bahay siya nag-siesta. Paggising niya, pinapa-wiwi na siya ni mama pero ayaw niya kse hindi pa daw siya nawiwiwi. Makalipas ang ilang minuto, nagsabi siya na nawiwiwi na siya. Dali-dali siyang nagpadala sa’kin sa CR. Pero bago dumating sa CR, as in nasa pinto na ng CR, bigla na lang siyang nawiwi. Syempre, nabasa ang panty at shorts niya, pati na ang slipper ni Mama.

Pagdating sa kwarto, wala na siyang panty pero hindi napapansin ni Mama.

Ako: Pepey, di ba may kasalanan ka?

Frey: Wala taya!

Ako: Meron eh. Sabihin mo na.

Frey: Awala aman ako atalanan eh.

MAma: Ano ba yung kasalanan mo daw?

Ako: Tingnan mo Ma, wala siyang panty.

Mama: Bakit? Nasan ba panty mo?

Frey: Alika, atuturo ko sa’yo

(At hinatak ni Pepey si mama sa CR)

Mama: Asan na?

Frey: Ayun oh! indi mo akikita? Aiihi ko din lelas mo oh.

(Sabay daan sa tawa)

One morning in school. The kulit new kid Rocco is crying because Teacher Beia reprimanded him because of his naughty acts. He was crying loud when the notorious kulit boy Joaqui and Dylan walked towards him. Joaqui and Dylan sat in front of Rocco and talked to him in a bulol way:

Joaqui and Dylan: (looking at Rocco intensely) No, no.

Rocco: (cries even louder)

Joaqui: No no! Don’t cry. (umiiling pa with matching pikit ng mata.)

When Rocco didn’t stop crying, Joaqui held Rocco’s face and kept on saying: “No, don’t cry.”

While teaching the little kids the Alphabets, shapes, colors, and numbers, I collected some of their classic bulol way of saying various things:

According to them:

W is either Wawawu or Wable U.

F is either Fe or Efs

Rectangle is Dedangle

Triangle is Dadangle

oblong is Odlong

Circle is Ikel

Square is twer

Moon is mu

Blue is Dlu

Yellow is Wallow

Violet is Aylet

Two is Wu

Everyday is really wonderful with these kids around:-) I just can’t help but laugh at the thought of them and their funny antics:-)
