Another family day.

What a lovely Saturday it turned out to be. Nate and I played together. Just  hearing  his unrestrained and loud laughter, seeing the happy smile on his face, listening to  some of his stories about school – priceless moments.

We create  memories.

When he saw the bedroom with new curtains and  freshly changed sheets, he said “Wow“. but that was followed by these words.  “Our bedroom is lovelier”.  Nissa and I just laughed.

While mom, my son-in-law and  Nissa  took an afternoon nap, Nate and I busied ourselves with his  assorted toys.  He brought along his newly bought scooter  and asked me if we could go out.  The sun was hot so we didn’t.

 

There is really no dull moment when I am with Nate.  The day is complete even if we only spent  a few hours playing together.

Nissa brought me several issues of Metro Home magazines which she bought at a book sale two weeks ago.  She bought a pair of each seven editions for both of us. Lovely.

Before they went home, Nate visited the garden.  He loves picking kalamansi,  unfortunately the fruits are still so small.

I am just happy seeing his face, how happy he is in the picture. The innocence of a child, the spontaneous smile that goes with it.  Precious  moment captured in a photograph.

Gosh, that was a severe migraine I had yesterday –  gargantuan headache, nausea  and vomiting five times in the process. I didn’t eat lunch and dinner  even if I was a bit hungry. I was  indisposed when my daughter’s family came over for a visit.  Except for the grandson, they had a scheduled visit to our family dentist who lives near our place.  Nate had  his dental prophylaxis in another clinic a week ago.

The moment Nate  stepped inside the gate, he showed his two hands wearing black glove on his right hand, a finger less glove on his other hand  and one foot with dark sock. “I am a ninja Nonna“, he said. I laughed. He brought his toy train set with him but without battery. They left him here for a few hours and he just played with his toys while I had my eyes closed the whole time. He had nobody to talk to and next time I opened my eyes, he was asleep still holding the plastic train tracks in his hands.

He is afraid of our cats but he kept looking at the newborn kittens inside the box. He said they look like mice and wanted to bring them home.  They are just a week old though.

Daughter said “you can’t bring them home, they are too small yet and need to be breastfed from their mom”. 

“Let’s give them milk”, he innocently answered. The wisdom of a four-year old.

It is always a thrill to have him around. He kept urging me to go to the comfort room when I said that I felt  nauseous.  “Just rest Nonna”.  I believe that kids nowadays  are  more solicitous. Even my daughter says that  she is sometimes amazed by the words that he utters, deep thoughts that make  one simply wonder. Truly amazing.

Have a nice week ahead everyone!

Last week, they were at the mall to have Nate’s hair cut. A talent scout approached them  and asked how old Nate was. The following day, Nate had this VTR  along with other kids.

Even if  he won’t be chosen,  I am  so happy for  our little guy.   But they are requesting him to attend a workshop and submit  requirements for a working permit.Nice audition Nate. Proud Nonna here.

They came yesterday with the grandson in his pajamas and my daughter said, “he just woke up”. so the first order of the day was, they had breakfast first before he took a bath.

As soon as we had our lunch, he asked  if we could pick kalamansi. He loves to visit the garden and play with our dog Noki but he was afraid of our three kitties.  When he was at play, he kept saying, “I don’t want to go home, I will stay with Nonna”. Nissa and I just smiled. It is a standard dialogue when he is around. He usually takes another bath before they go home and he always ask, “Are we going home after I take a bath? I don’t want to take a bath”.  Haha, the logic of  a four-year old 🙂

They brought with them his new set of Lego toys but he also has a big plastic bag of toys here.

 

He is so creative. He could build  several figures out of the tiny Lego blocks.  I have an hour with him with his ABC and story books.  He always love to sit on my lap and read him fairy tales. Gosh, I’m impressed, he could summarize every story after reading.

 

We were having a snack of Banana bread and Cinnamon rolls when he suddenly blurted out: “Happy birthday Mommy” to Nissa. We just laughed. Her birthday is next month yet.

Then he said, “bye books, bye toys, bye Nonna”.  What a lovely day it was. Family day is always something I really look forward to.  It does not matter  how simply we spend it as long as we are all together.

My daughter Nissa brought my four-year old grandson to her office the other day. He was there the whole day and enjoyed the office atmosphere with Nissa’s office mates.  Yesterday, Nissa came home after work and they had this somewhat innocent conversation:

First thing Nate said when I got home:
You forgot to bring me, Mom!
Me: Where?
Nate: To the office!
haha, nawili ang bata.

I laughed while I read this short post.  Nate is a very friendly kid. He always has that ready “Hi” for everyone.

Nate at Nissa’s office. The only time he was quite behaved was when he watched his favorite cartoon movies.

The joy of being a child. Every day is happiness.
