MM #3: She Put Music On
Charlie and I were trying to figure how to end our newsletter when he remembered an incident about Ian at school.
Apparently a few months ago, Ian came home with a notation on his homework folder instead of a "good behavior" stamp. It clearly said, "Dancing in class". Charlie saw it first because he picked up Jasmine and Ian from school. So, of course, Charlie asked what happened.
Charlie: Ian, is this true, you were dancing in class?
Ian: Yes, Daddy... (sad, got-caught face being displayed)
Charlie: Were you supposed to be dancing in class?
Ian: No, Daddy... (the sad face still there)
Charlie: Well, if you knew that, why did you dance in class?
Ian: (surprised face) Daddy, she put music on!
You see, it's clearly not his fault! He was just following the natural thing to do when music's on. :D
I asked Lisa this morning if she can take the kids to the bus stop because I'm still a little stuffed up. After about 15 minutes, she comes down asking me for something.
Lisa: Mommy, can I borrow your bootalon?
Lisa: You know Mommy, your bootalon? (pointing at my legs)
Me: What is a bootalon?
Lisa: Mommy, isn't bootalon Tagalog for boots?
Me: No, but you just combined the word "boots" and "pantalon" (Tagalog for pants)!
Lisa: (Lol) Well, can I borrow your bootalon?
Me: Ok, I guess you can borrow my bootalon...
This girl can't remember much Spanish, much less Tagalog, but she can certainly adapt the words that she does remember... :D
