On Why We Love Ate Donna

The other day, we promised Liam that we will go home early, true to our words, we left office exactly 5:30.. and this video is what we went home to. Donna is teaching Liam how to count 1 to 100 without us telling her to do so.

In one of my recent posts, I’ve mentioned being thankful having Donna as Liam’s yaya. She may not be the best out there and may have some shortcomings too. But in general, you can feel her love and concern for Liam. Paano ko nasabi yun?!?!

Before Liam even started his school this year, I think Saturday ito before Liam’s first day..

Donna: Ate, kelan nga po ulit ung Linggo ng Wika?
Me: Sa August pa yun.
Donna: Yung bookworm po?
Me: Ahh.. parang October ata un or November?
Donna: Kasya pa siguro ung Spiderman costume ni Liam no? Sana suotin na nya..
Me: Waah! mainit un! ayaw ko na pasuot saknya un!
Donna: Sa bagay….

See!!?? It’s still July and there are still 2 days before school officially start, she’s already worried about what will her alaga wear for the school programs. hahahahaha

Meron pa yan.. All students are supposed to bring their required supplies which should be labeled one by one on second day of school. While I have already bought all of Liam’s stuff, am procrastinating labeling. so Monday night comes..

Donna: Ate, nakaprint na po kayo sticker ni Liam
Me: ‘di pa, hayaan mo na, late nlng naten padala mga gamit nya
Donna: ok po (with a sad face)

Donna: Ate, need din pala ng story book sa school
Me: Ayaw ko nga pamigay mga books nya
Donna: Kahit ung pinaka luma na lang po..
Me: Ayaw ko nga.. binili ko yun para kay Liam, di para sa school.
Donna: Nagbabasa basa na po kasi sila sa school, sya lang walang dala…

Following day…
Me: Dons, eto na stickers, eto pa ung mga kulang na gamit. At eto na ung libro na dadalhin nya.. ikaw na mag label.
Donna: ok po.. (with a wide smile, sabay lipat sa room nya to do all the labeling..
Aba! kinalimutan na di pa naligo alaga nya!!

There are more of these stories, baka mapuno ang post ko. Basta, we are really thankful that we got her to be Liam’s yaya. She may have shortcomings but her love for Liam is all worth shrugging those lapses off.. πŸ™‚
