If Only – Mommy Shoo the Bad Dreams Away
There was a frantic knock on the couple’s door.
“Mrs. Chief? Mrs. Chief?”
Maya immediately went to the door and was surprise to see her carrying a crying Sky.
“Oh, anong nangyari?” Maya then took Sky.
“Eh Mrs. Chief, nung silipin ko po sila, nagising at nagiiyak. Di ko naman po na mapatahan, si babay Sean naingit na rin.”
“mom <hiccups> my <hiccups> mons <hiccups> ter.”
“What happened?” Ricky was up now as well.
“Mukhang may napanaginipan daddy.” Ricky took Sky and went inside.
“Salamat Doris ha. Ikaw na muna bahala kina Sunshine at Sean.”
“Sige po Mrs. Chief. Pasensya na po.”
“Naku, wala yun Doris. Alamin na lang natin sa umaga anong nangyari.”
Maya closed the door and went to the bed where Ricky was with Sky lying on his chest.
“Looks like a very bad dream.”
“Oo nga daddy. Kaso wala akong maisip na napanood nilang nakakatakot. Hindi rin naman nagbubukas ng tv sina Doris at Sabel. Kawawa naman si Sky.” Maya said as she caress Sky’s back.
“Sige na mommy, tulog na tayo. Hindi na magpapalipat to.”
“Okay lang nakaganyan sa’yo si Sky?”
“Yes sweetheart, okay lang. Let’s sleep.”
-the following morning-
Ricky came out of their room carrying Sky.
“Oh dad, why galing sa room nyo si Sky?” Nikki asked.
“He had a bad dream last night. He was crying so Doris brought him to us.
“Awww, wawa naman si Sky. Is he okay now?”
“Sana Nikki. Mukhang di talaga maganda yung dream nya. Tatanungin nga namin mamaya kung anong napanaginipan nya.”
Since it’s a Saturday, no work and no classes.
After breakfast, they all went to the lanai.
“Sky, what happened last night?”
“Mommy, I had a bad dream. So scary. I don’t yike it.” Sky was sitting on his dad’s lap.
“Can you describe it Sky?”
“I don’t yike daddy. Soo shcary. I don’t want dream when I sleep.”
The couple looked at each other feeling helpless when Sky added something.
“I don’t yike kuya Yuke’s phone anymore.”
Luke was surprised when he heard his name, the couple looked at him.
“Why Sky? What happened to kuya Luke’s phone?”
“Ish scary mommy.”
“Naku mommy baka nagalaw nya ung phone ko po nung nag-CR ako. Katabi niya po kasi yung phone ko. Pinapanood ko po yung trailer ng The Conjuring 2. Sorry po my, sorry dad. I’ll be careful next time.”
Maya looked at the remorseful look of Luke.
“Kuya, wala kang kasalanan. Hindi mo naman sinasadya yun.”
They were all looking helpless when an idea struck Maya.
“I have an idea guys.”
“Ano po mommy?” Abby asked.
“Let’s reenact ung mga shows na pinapanood ng kambal. Mabilis naman makalimot ang mga bata lalo pag nag-e-enjoy.”
“I like that idea mom.” Nikki agreed.
“I’ll agree on anything mom.” Luke answered. Maya smiled at him and caressed his back, telling him that he really shouldn’t feel guilty but nonetheless his support is very much appreciated.
“Ako din po.” Abby added.
“Kami rin po Mrs. Chief.” DorBel answered simultaneously.
“Kung makakatulong ako Mrs. Chief, sabihin nyo lang po.” Kuya Joma added.
“So, what will we re-enact?” Ricky asked.
Laughter of the twins filled the house as the adults re-enacts Peppa Pig shows. Ricky though volunteered to look after baby Sean, just so he could avoid acting. The rest had fun though.
After their show, the twins were ushered to their room. Sky though doesn’t want to lie down.
“Why Sky?” Maya asked.
“I want dahdi mommy.”
“You want daddy to lie down beside you.”
“No. <he answered as he shakes his head as well> I want lay down on daddy so I can sleep.”
“Okay buddy. Come on.” Maya helped Ricky settle on the bed as Sky excitedly lie down on his dad.
“Good night Sky.” Maya kissed him on the cheek.
“Good night mommy. Good night dahdi.”
“Good night buddy.”
-in the couple’s room-
“Maging okay na kaya si Sky sweetheart?”
“Of course sweetheart. Ang galing kaya ng mommy nya. Tapos ang galing din ng mga supports kaya I know Sky will be okay.” Ricky ended as he kissed her on the head. “And para mas mapanatag ka, we’ll bring him sa child psychologist.” Ricky added knowing his wife well.
“Thanks sweetheart. I love you!”
“I love you more and more each day!”
“Ay ang cheesy ng asawa ko..hahaha..pero seryoso sweetheart, thank you ng marami sa pagmamahal. Napakaswerte ko talaga sa’yo.”
“Parehas tayo sweetheart.”
“Sige na nga. Tara tulog na tayo para maaga natin madala si Sky sa doctor. Good night.” And Maya gave him a sweet kiss.
“Good night!” He answered ending with a sweet kiss too.
