If Only – Pasyal Time
It’s a Sunday. The family attended the mass and now on their way to the mall. Doris, Sabel and Joma with his son were with them as well.
Upon alighting the vehicle,
“Dahdi, carry.” Sky raised his hands towards his dad.
Maya was carrying Sean. Sunshine was looking at her twin, she then looked at Luke.
“Okay, come here Sunshine, kuya will carry you.”
She was grinning.
While walking, Ricky asked Sky.
“Sky, why you don’t like to walk?”
“Becos my feet are sleepy. They don’t like to walk.”
Everyone laughed at Sky.
“Oh Sky, where did you learn that? Hahaha. You’re a better joker than kuya.”
“Mommy, kanino nagmana tong anak mo?”
“Eh di sa’yo daddy.”
Ricky’s eyes rounded and just chuckled. He placed his arm on her waist.
“Are you okay sweetheart? Hindi ka ba nahihirapan?”
“Okay lang ako sweetheart. Ikaw inaalala ko. Ung buto mo. Alam mo naman.”
And she laughed as he gave her a grim face.
“You’re so mean.”
“I love you.”
He shook his head and gave her a kiss on the forehead.
They are now near the play area for the kids.
“Hmmmm, should we go in the play area? I don’t think Sky and Sunshine wants to walk.
Sky then was wiggling out of his dad’s arms.
“Dahdi, my feet are awake now. They want to walk.”
“Oh my gee!!! Hahaha.. Sky! You are really hilarious. Where are you getting those ideas? Hahaha”
“Ang witty po ni Sky mommy.”
“Oo nga ate Abby and makulit.”
“Doris, Sabel, Joma, kayo na lang sumama sa mga bata. We will just wait in the coffee place”
“Eh sir, dito na lang po kami sa labas ni Marco.”
“No Joma, bayad na ung ticket ni Marco. Don’t worry about it.”
“Naku sir salamat po, Mrs. Chief.” Ricky just smiled to acknowledge his thanks.
“Wala un kuya Joma.”
“Sige po sir, kami na po bahala sa mga bata.” Doris said.
“Okay, around 11 puntahan namin kayo dito para mag-lunch.”
“Copy sir.” Sabel answered.
“Sky, Sunshine be good to ate Sabel, ate Doris and kuya Joma, okay?”
“Yes mommy!” The twins answered at the same time. Excitement evident in their voices.
“Okay, you may go inside now.”
“Ah, kuya Joma, here’s my ipad. Kindly take pictures of them para makita rin namin itsura inside.”
“Thankie. Bye Sky, bye Sunshine. Enjoy!”
Sunshine nodded her head, Sky grinned.
“Excited na pumasok ung kambal.hahaha” Luke commented.
The three kids get inside with their chaperone as the rest of the family went to the coffee place.
They looked for a vacant place so Maya could take a seat.
“Mom, dad, kami na po mag-order.” Luke offered.
“And pay?” Ricky teased his son.
“Opo dad. May naitabi naman po ako. Tsaka para ma-i-treat ko po kayo.”
“Wow kuya, you’re so sweet.”
“Sila mom and dad lang ililibre ko and si Abby.” Luke teased her.
“Kuya! You’re so daya.” She harrumphed.
“Sige na, kasali ka syempre. Niloloko lang kita.”
“Thankie!” Nikki quickly recovered.
Ricky and Maya were smiling watching their older kids’ sweet banter. They looked at each other and smiled. Happiness and fulfillment evident on their faces.
Such a great life indeed.
