Yaya Teaches Zoe
One lazy afternoon while on bedrest due to hyperthyroidism, I overheard Zoe’s nanny teaching her about some new words. Hmm. Interesting, I said to myself.
Yaya: Zoe, say “sirkol”. (I rushed towards the yaya and had to ask)
Gem: Uyy ano yung tinuturo mo sa bata?
Yaya: Sirkol po. (pointing to the shape of a circle printed on Zoe’s book)
Gem: Ahh, circle! [sur-kuhl]
Yaya: Zoe, say trayanggol.
Yaya: Beri gud! (With a grin on her face). Say, “RID.“
(Arrghhh! I just couldn’t help it anymore. I ran towards her and commented)
Gem: Tigilan mo na nga yan. Ako na magtuturo.
Gem: Now Zoe, say red. It’s red ok? Redddd.
