Raviv the Ultimate Ladies’ Man
One madaling araw, as I was soundly asleep, Raviv was probably bitten by a mosquito and was awakened. He woke me up to scratch him.
Raviv: Nanay! Nanay! Itchy, Nanay…
Me: [deadma, tuloy tulog mantika]
Raviv (begging in a more insistent tone): Nanay Nanay itchy!!! Nanaaaay!!!
Me: [walang awa, tuloy tulog mantika]
Raviv, in a softer tone: Pretty Nanay itchy…Pretty Nanaaay…
At sino namang hindi magigising n’yan ‘di ba? Madaling araw may tatawag sa ‘yo nang, “Pretty Nanay!” Of course, I woke up even though I was groggy. With a smile pa. I have a feeling he will be able to make any woman do as he bids in the future. So girls, beware!
Raviv the Understanding Son of a Working Mom 1
On my lunch break, I lay beside Raviv so he would have his afternoon nap. However, lunch break was almost over and yet he was still wide awake. I rose from the bed, but he held me so I won’t leave. I lay down beside him again and spoke to him gently.
Me: Raviv, Nanay has to leave.
Raviv: No!!! No!!! Nanay dito ka lang!
Me: Raviv, I have to work anak…
Raviv: ‘Wag kang work Nanay…’wag nang work…
Me: Baby if Nanay does not work we won’t have money. If we won’t have money, we cannot buy milk for you, toys for you, food for you…so Nanay has to work.
Raviv: ‘Pag hindi ka nag-work wala na akong toys?
Me: Yes baby. Wala na tayong pambili ng toys mo…
Raviv kept quiet and got his feeding bottle and drank his milk. Then he turned and saw me still lying down beside him. He removed the bottle from his mouth, stopped drinking from it, looked at me with much conviction and said…
Raviv: O Nanay, alis ka na! Work ka na. Para may pambili tayo ng toys ko.
At bumalik sa pagdede. OK, so dismissed na talaga ako!

Just a few hours ago, while Raviv and I were resting…
Raviv: Nanay hindi ka na work?
Me: Yes Baby. Nanay is finished working.
Raviv: Work ka pa Nanay work ka pa! Para marami akong toys…
Nyeh. If he were older I’d have thought he was being sarcastic. Or was he?
Raviv the Confident Boy
One night on our bed after Raviv took a bath, nanggigil ako sa mabango at squeaky clean kong baby boy. I kept on hugging him and kissing him while he was playing with his Tatay’s iPad. Then I said:
Me: Raviv you are so cute!!! You are such a cute-cute boy!!!
Raviv (looked at me briefly and away from the iPad and just said this nonchalantly): I know.
Yes, ganun kasimple. Sabay balik sa iPad at laro. Talk about self-confidence Raviv ha! Feeling ka!
Raviv the Motivational Speaker
About a month ago, Raviv’s favorite toy was his Lego. Randy, and sometimes even my brother TJ, often plays it with him. I, however, have no engineering or architecture bone in me. One time no one was there to play the Lego with Raviv, except for me.
Raviv: Nanay you make a bus. Here are the pieces
Me: No baby I don’t know how.
Raviv: Nanay, kaya mo ‘yan! Big girl ka na ah!
Oooookaaaaaay. My palusot was called.
Raviv the Meticulous Guy
One night I was playing with and hugging Raviv. He was hugging me back and then quickly snatched his hand away when it touched my underarm. Napahiya ako sa hirit niya…
Raviv (looking at me with an expression that’s a mixture of diri, love and pity): Nanay, bakit dirty ang kili-kili mo?
Oooops. Result of growing underarm hair that was shaved, as I usually have my underarms waxed (when I wax the growing hair is soft). From then on, I told myself I’ll have these pesky hairs lasered na talaga, para permanently na silang mawala. Nacacahiya naman kay Ravivo!
Raviv the Backseat Driver Teacher
You know my driving stories, right (Not yet?!? Pwes backread THIS and THIS and THIS). I evaded having Raviv as a passenger for a long time because I did not want to endanger his life in any way. But one time it was inevitable that I drive for him. I was soooo nervous, especially because his car seat was in Randy’s Q5!
Me (in a stern voice): Raviv, make sure you wear a seatbelt! At ‘wag malikot anak ha! Don’t talk to Nanay because Nanay needs to concentrate. Nanay will drive, and Nanay does not really know how to drive. So please stay put!
Raviv (looking bewildered): You don’t know how to drive Nanay?!? Look at me, ganito lang, o! (He then stretched both hands to his front and pretended he was working the steering wheel). O, ganyan lang. Ang dali lang Nanay. Gayahin mo lang ako.
Hahaha! That definitely lessened my worries! And then after our errands and got home…
Randy: O kumusta pagda-drive mo?
Me: OK naman.
Raviv: Tinuruan ko mag-drive si Nanay, Tatay! Ako ang nagturo!
So ladies and gentlemen, if any of you dunno how to drive, FYI, Raviv gives private driving lessons. 😉
