Basti’s with my in-laws this weekend for All Saints’ and All Souls’ Day. I called him earlier to check on him and here was how our conversation went.
Me: Hi Sweetheart! How are you?
Basti: I’m okay. Mommy, kelan ko po makukuha yung gift mo sa ‘kin? (When am I going to get my gift from you?)
(Note: The gift was a promise I made to him when he topped his class and got the Best in Religion award for the 1st quarter grading.)
Me: I already have it with me but it’s still a secret. Bigay ko sa ‘yo pag nagkita tayo next week. (I’ll give it to you when we see each other next week.)
Basti: Ok. I also have a gift for you but it’s a secret.
Me: Thanks, Sweetheart! So it’s already your birthday, san mo iti-treat si Mommy? (Where are you going to treat Mommy?)
Basti: Kahit saan Mommy! (Wherever you want Mommy!)
Me: Really? So who’s gonna pay?
Basti: Sino pa? Eh di ikaw! (Who else? Of course, you!)
Me and my big mouth! Why did I need to ask? LOL!
