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!

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?
