I overheard this conversation between my son Justin and his yaya (nanny) from inside the bedroom where I work.

Justin: (Doodling on his notebook) “Family.” (He’s trying to draw a family. He now knows that a family consists of daddy, mommy, and baby.)

Manang: “Ano ang name ni Mommy?” (What is mommy’s name?)

Justin: “Teresa.”

Manang: “Wow, galing!” (Wow, great!) “Eh, ano ang name ni Daddy?” (What is daddy’s name?)

Justin: “Eduardo.”

Manang: “Wow! Very good! Ano naman ang name ni Justin?” (What is Justin’s name?)

Justin: “Justin Edward Figuerres.” (His last name he pronounced as “Guerres” only.)

Manang: (Clapping her hands with glee) “Very good!”

Justin, now two years and 5 months old, knew how to say his name when he turned a little older than one, but our names (his dad’s and mine), I have only told him a couple of times. I never thought he’d remember. Should I tell him our telephone number next?

This blog was originally put up to document my son’s growing-up milestones, all for posterity’s sake. But there are other things to write about, aside from “mommyhood,” that merit my attention, and I’m including them all here. This blog now chronicles my life as a mom and a wife and everything else in between. For collabs, please email tgfiguerres@yahoo.com.
