Who is this friend of Dada who is a GIRL?!?!

Thursday, August 17, 2017

KBefore reading the story below.  Imagine me as a SUPER JEALOUS WIFE, freaking out when I heard what I heard from my daughter.



So the other night, Connor was asking me to read him a book.  It was Kailee's book Aqualicious, I thought it was given by one of her ninangs.  She said that it was given to her by Dada's friend who is a girl.  I asked which friend, Kailee said *The friend of Dada who comes to the house!*

Kailee:  She gave it to me for my birthday, but she missed my birthday so she gave it after my birthday.

WHO IS THIS FRIEND?

It would have been something innocent, but then I thought - my Panget doesn't have a LOT of (girl) friends who frequent the house.  I also can't seem to recall a friend of my Panget who is a girl that gives Kailee gifts, especially on her birthday.  How did this girl know of Kailee's birthday?  I then turned to my Panget and asked him - Who is this friend she is talking about?  My Panget looked at me clueless.  You should see the look on his face.  And then Kailee added this *Diba Dada, she comes here all the time?*  I was very curious - I wanted to know how this conversation will end.  So I pressed further.

Me:  So Kailee, what does she look like?
Kailee:  She has short hair, like my BFF A.
Me:  Short hair? (Faces of my Panget's friends suddenly flashed - and none of them, I mean NONE of them had short hair!)  Dada doesnt' have a friend who's a girl that has short hair.
Kailee:  He does!  Her hair is colored brown!  (Kailee was so SURE of this)
Me:  Who is she?  Do you remember her name?  (I pressed further)
Kailee:  I know her name starts with a C!
Me:  Dada doesn't have a friend who is a girl that starts with a C!  (Letter C??)
Kailee:  He does!  (and she turns to my Panget and says Dada, diba you have??)

My Panget and I both asked - is she Auntie Imma?  Auntie Annie?  Kailee shook her head to both names.

I then looked at my Panget and then told him *Binubuking ka na ng anak mo* I really needed to know.  I swear, I wanted to get to the bottom of this.  I had to still press on my questioning.  I need to strategize.  Who was this friend?  I mean, seriously - WHO IS THIS FRIEND WHO IS A GIRL??

Kailee:  She comes here to visit!
Me:  She comes here to the house?  (WTH?!)
Kailee:  Yes, she does!  (In my head, I'm almost always with Kailee when she's in the house)
Me:  As in inside this house?
Kailee:  Yes!  She even said that she was going with us to (place of vacation) to take care of Taikong, but she got sick!  So she didn't come with us.
Me:  Who is this friend?

Kailee's face then lights up and says *I''ll give you a clue, dada has a picture!* and then Kailee began to rummage through my Panget's side table.

If I were the SUPER JEALOUS wife I asked you to imagine me to be - this would have been a crazy SERIOUS confrontation and discussion.  I would be going ballistic and thinking of the worst case scenario.

But you know what, I'm really not.

The truth of the matter is - I WAS LAUGHING LIKE CRAZY as this whole conversation was happening.  I was laughing out loud, crazily, happily.  I think my kids thought I was a lunatic, they didn't understand why I was laughing so hard and so loudly.  My Panget on the other hand was laughing too.  But not as hard and as loudly as me.  Hahaha..

I was really wondering WHO IS THIS FRIEND OF MY PANGET?  Oh my gosh, believe me - I was sooooo entertained.  I indulged Kailee more while she was looking for the picture.

Me:  What picture are you looking for?
Kailee:  We have a picture of a party and she was there!

In my mind, she was in a party, WITH US?  Who is this girl??

Then what Kailee said next threw me into a CRAZIER laughing fit.

Kailee:  I think Dada hid the picture na.  (Mind you, her term was HID!)

Oh my gosh, my Panget hid the picture!  I looked at my Panget while crazily laughing and said *You hid the evidence!*  I think he was as amused as I was so interested and entertained by this whole thing.

Then finally - something clicked in Kailee's mind

Kailee:  I think I remember her name.
Me:  Whats her name?
Kailee: Cyma!
Me:  Cyma?
Kailee:  Yes!  Cyma!
Me:  Dada doesn't have a friend who is named Cyma
My Panget:  You mean Chiman?  Uncle Chiman?  (Yes, he had to inject his friend's name, hahahaha!)
Kailee: No!  Her name is Cyma!

I then thought hard, while laughing out very very loudly

Me:  I know!  It's See-E-Ma!

Kailee:  Yes!  That's her!  C-E-Ma!

FINALLY, we have a name.

So who is C-E-Ma?

C-E-Ma is the youngest sister of my mother in law.  I told Kailee *C-E-Ma is not Dada's friend, she is Dada's AUNT!*  Kailee looked at me confused.  I had to explain to her so she could understand better.  All along she thought that C-E-Ma is her Dada's friend.  Hahaha!!

I swear, it was such a FUNNY and INTERESTING conversation.

C-E-Ma does fit all of Kailee's descriptions.  She comes to the house, she has short hair and her hair is brown too.  Of course at family parties, she is present.  She fits them all.

You know, if I had trust issues - this story would be different.  It's a good thing that I don't - instead I was entertained like there was no tomorrow.

Have happy Thursday!

Kids talaga....
