I wish.

I wish Summer would have so much fun at school. I wish she'll study hard to learn, bonus na to get high grades. I wish she'll burn the midnight oil to study well.

But it's still too early to tell. After school, at Karcraft, before we head to Bulacan while waiting for Omar, Summer was drawing and fell asleep on it. She wakes up at 5:30 in the morning.
Kawawa naman.

Buhay mayaman.

I seldom stay at home. I stay at Paranaque and work at Bulacan.

On Fridays, I stay home and wait for Summer to finish school, then we go home to Bulacan together. And while waiting for Summer at home, th
at's when I witness Winter's activity at home.

He would not eat when he just woke up.

He can now watch TV - while lying on the bed with his knee raised up and munching on some goodies - buhay mayaman!
Aba, anak! Okay lang yan kasi baby ka pa. Pero pag laki mo, dapat matuto kang kumayod. Kaya samantalahin mo na hangga't baby ka pa.

It's a month before Winter turns 2 and he can still barely talk. He could say Mama, Noynoy - referring to the president, and Ba! - referring to Sponge Bob. He would say Ba! everytime he see his towel when I give him a bath.
He doesn't like taking a bath - I use cold water on him since summer time, except when he's sick. His sponge bob towel is one thing I use to convince him to go and take a bath. Then, he would face the mirror and laugh at himself.

The story of Basyang.

Omar went to play basketball. The wind started howling and I can hear small twigs of trees flying and hitting the roof. Lights were fluctuating. I started texting Omar. It was a bit scary and I want him to come home fast. He was using the corolla so I know it's not safe with the rain and the wind.

Until he knocked on the window and I went out to open the door for him. And just when I was at the dining room, on my way to the room, the lights went
out for good. Thank God Omar's home already.

The wind was so strong. Omar went out of the room to check on some stuff in the living room that might fall down. And as he was just peeking out of the window, we heard a loud fall and Ate Elsie shouting from the next door that the big mango tree in front of our house just fell down. There was no light and the wind was still so strong so there's nothing else that we can do.

We tried to pull Omar's bed mattress next to the window so Winter and I can sleep next to it but the drizzle was so strong, it can reach the inside of our room. We had no choice but to close the window. Winter was so scared and won't let go of you, though he's not crying. Summer was dead to the world, sleeping the whole time.

Good thing it was pretty cold so we were all able to go sleep. Come morning, we saw the tree in front of our house.
Lights are still out. Good thing Summer doesn't have school because of the Parent's Orientation but did not push through because of the weather.

Kuya and his family went to Bulacan. We have generator set there. We can't go there. It would be too early for Summer's school and Winter would have to go with them too so Cory and Winter can go home and wait for Summer to go home from school at lunch time. I can't go home early since I have to do the payroll at the office the following day. We were offered to stay at the hotel together with Omar's brother but I do not want to hassle them with us moving around too early in the morning for Summer's school.

Jenny and I just went to SM Bicutan to buy rechargeable lights and electric fan. I bought 2 - 1 for the night and the other as reserve when the battery of the first one run out. The kids and I were able to go to bed soundly. Omar had to wake up in the middle of the night to change shirt since the only electric fan is on us.

It's a battle of survival. I just thank God we're all together at times like this and we survived.

Good boy.

Winter had his hair cut again. Winter and Omar have the same barber.

He's just so behave that other barbers would even comment how good he was.
Good job, Winter boy!

Stir-Fry Garlic Eggplant

As we were grocery shopping with Mama last week, she recommended a stir-fry garlic eggplant mix for emergency dish. I bought eggplants and tofu.

But we are having dinner with Ate's boss, who is coming from the US. But I had spare time and prepared the dish. I left it for Omar to taste.

Sana edible.

If Mommy and Daddy slept in Paranaque, and
If I did not bring Summer to school, and
If Winter's up before I leave the house,
I bring him to Mommy and Daddy's house so they can play with him.

Mom has decorative ducks, both made of wood and ceramic. And Winter would point on it, as if instructing us to get it for him. Then, he would ride on it. Mom and Dad would happily oblige.
What Winter wants, Winter gets.
