Yesterday was another  lovely family day. Played with Nate, gave him a bath and picked calamansi for them to bring home.

When  he got bored with his meager toys here, he suggested that we open the PC so he could play. He knows how to play Bejeweled and when he hits the target and see the word  Excellent, he claps his hands and points to the  scoreboard.  He asked me to open Warcraft and StarCraft but I told him those were not for little boys like him. It is only his Ninong Josef who play the games.  I showed many photos that I took previously and those which Nissa forwarded through messenger. He was happy.

He tinkered with my tab, finally finding the camera and took shots of Nissa sleeping on the bed. I erased most of them because they were not in focus and so blurry. Before they left, I took a few shots not being aware that  he set it to video. So we had so many one minute and fifty seconds video shots while he was making faces in front of the camera. Naughty, naughty Nate.  He ended saying “Do you like it Nonna”?

I asked him about school and his classmates. He said that he brings lunch to school because his class ends at 11:20 am.  When his classmates noticed it, they also brought their  own.  “Girls are not allowed“, he told me, meaning it is an all-boys class.

I promised to buy  him some marbles to play with next time he visits and toy soldiers too, he added. He brought with him a big transformer car but could not  make it  go because the batteries were not charged properly.  So we just converted it to a big robot.

The happiness of a child sometimes lie in simple things.  They don’t need really complicated toys to make them happy. It was another wonderful day, another day to cherish.
