i did mention in my kids in doodles post that mum + i went to manila last weekend to meet up with my ninang jack. i last saw her when i was baptized, so i am not familiar with her that much. mum + her agreed to meet up at the block, in sm north. we found one of this shops that serve taho, which is one of my favorites + the grown ups decided to sit there for awhile as they finish their cups of taho. i am not too fond of it + would rather play around while they eat 😀
ninang jack gave me a gift which i excitedly open. when all the christmas wrapper is gone, i got this lightning mcqueen magic slate + i liked it instantly. i doodles on the magnetic pad + played with the clock + the knobs on top. it also comes with these shapes of heart, circle + triangle that leaves a stamp-pad like print on the slate when you use it. mum also wrote letters on the slate for me to read + my ninang was so delighted that i can now distinguish + read most of the letters of the alphabet 😀
after i got bored writing on the slate, the different stamp-pad like shapes make for good improvised balls i threw around the floor! i was all over the floor catching them, + sometimes mum would run + get them for me. + did i mention i knocked down a poster/display in the shop in the middle of my rough play? glad the shop keeper did not spank me!
mum told me to just sit + behave after that, but she knows i cannot really sit still for 5 solid seconds, i had to run around the place again. i busied myself checking out the mannequins nearby before the grown ups decided to call it a day.
