Kagabi bago matulog, niyakap ko si Addie.
Me: I love you so much, Addie. Do you know that?
Addie: Even if you have a new baby na?
Me: Yes! And Mommy is not going to have a baby yet. Sana may baby brother or sister ka na.
Addie: Mommy, how can there be a baby on your tummy?
Me: (Pak! Inumpisahan ko pa kasi!!!!!) By praying to Papa Jesus. We have to pray very hard so that Mommy will get pregnant na.
Addie: How do you get pregnant?
Me: (Tinuloy ko pa kasi talaga noh?!?!) Uhm, Papa Jesus will give the baby to a magic stork. The magic stork will bring it to me.
Addie: You’re joking.
Me: No, I’m not.
(Hanap ng picture ng stork na may dalang baby sa google.)
Addie: Ohhhh…. who puts the baby in the blanket? Who ties the blanket on the stork?
Me: Papa Jesus.
Addie: Di ba Papa Jesus is just a baby. Why you call him Papa Jesus?
Me: Papa Jesus became old na. You’ll learn about Papa Jesus in school, or we’ll read about him tomorrow.
Addie: I want to watch a youtube of the stork with the baby. (Adik lang sa youtube)
Addie: That’s not real picture eh.
(Oo nga naman, drawing lang…)
Me: There’s no video because it’s a magic stork. No one can see them. They will only go out from the magic clouds when everyone is sleeping. (Imbento pa more! Nakakapagod to!)
Addie: Who made the stork?
Me: Papa Jesus.
Addie: Where did Papa Jesus c[o]me from when he was a baby?
(Anak ng!!!!!! Buko na ko dito!!)
Times like these you need a juicy!!!
Me: (Tingin sa relo) Hala, it’s time to sleep na it’s very late na.
Me: GOOD NIGHT ADDIE! I LOVE YOU. (Sabay patay ilaw.)
Mommies, help!!! Paano ine-explain to?!
