Sometimes my Mom just can’t stand it so she calls me just to complain. I don’t blame her. Getting stuck with a 17-year-old (Jiko) and a 3-year-old (Sofia) and having to listen to everything they talk/scream about can be trying. She once told me that she wanted to wear earphones all the time because she was afraid she’d go deaf.
I asked her:
Me: Mom, are Jiko and Sofia close?
Mom: Well, they fight a lot. Their conversations usually go like this…
3: Food! For Baby! 😀
17: No, that’s for the both of us.
3: No! Only for Baby! X-(
17: No, for us.
3: For Baby!!! *WAAAAAH*
17: No. 😛
*crying and pandemonium ensues*
3: *toddles into a room*
17: I will cook Baby.
17: Yeeessss… cook Baby. Hehehe.
3: Cook Kuya Jiko also!
17: Cook Baby. Cooooooook!
Mom: So if you call that interaction, then I could call them “close”.
I shall definitely buy her earphones. Big ones.
