Adi (my 3-year old boy) saw our neighbours carrying a live pig (lilitsunin).
Adi: Wow! A pig!
Me: Yes, it’s a pig. Get inside. Sleep ka na.
I see to it that Adi gets his afternoon nap. He asked for his padede and lied down on the sofa. We were watching TV when an image of a lechong-baboy was flashed.
Adi: Look, Mama! It’s the pig!
Me: How did you know it’s the pig?
Adi: Patay na. (It’s dead)
I have no idea how my three-year old boy got the idea that the pig that my neighbours brought home would be slaughtered and roasted into a tasty lechon just like what was flashed on TV (Mila’s Lechon).
I was busy doing the laundry when Adi interrupted me.
Adi: Bye, Mama. Go to school. (while carrying a red sling bag)
Me: There’s no school today.
Adi: Bye Mama, go to work.
Orange is to orange as apple is to red. My toddler seems to be confused with the color orange and the fruit orange.
Me: What color is this? (points to orange)
Me: What about this? (points to red)
