This boy, Clark.



For straight two days, my sister Binky texted me to call her because my nephew Clark wanted to speak to me.

When I called yesterday, he was the one who answered the phone.

Clark: Tita Aileen?

Me: Yes, Clark?

Clark: Naa na kay Christmas gift for me?

Me: Not yet? Ngano man?

Clark: I want a bike. Kanang duha ra ka-wheels ba. Please, please, Tita Aileen!

In the background, I heard Beau said: "I want a guitar."

Dear friends, if you don't get anything from me, you know where my Christmas budget went. Haha.

. . . . .

Today, he asked to speak with me again.

Clark: Tita Aileen?

Me: Hi Clark!

Clark: Hi Tita Aileen! Pwede anha ko puyo nimo?

Me (a bit shocked): Here? In Manila?

Clark: Yes.

Me: Nya, dili ka mo-cry or mangita sa imong Mommy?

Clark: Dili. Anha ko mo-school.

Me: Ok.

Before I called, he asked his Mom: "Nice ang schools sa Manila, Ma?" Now, I hope he won't say he would like to study in Ateneo (although it would be ideal), because otherwise, he would have to live with Tita Baden. Plus, Tita Baden and I will have to work like hell if Ateneo will be his choice. LOL

Binky told me Clark made that decision without her prodding or advice.

If my sister allows him to live with me, then I'd be playing Mom to this six-year-old, attend PTA meetings, cheer for his football games, watch plays and concerts he will be part of. But make no mistake, he will do his own projects and homeworks, and solve his own problems. I will just be in the background to guide and support.

Oh, the thought of having him here excites me. But I really doubt my sister will allow him. But if, in a crazy twist of fate and she does, then it would be awesome.

Pin It!

10 left some love :

I agree. If we are taking care of another human being, we should take extra care of ourselves. Can you imagine what a stage-tita I'd be? *grin*
