A/N Baka naman kasi sabihin nyo puro kanaughtihan lang ang alam ko. Kaya ayan wholesome episode to. 😆
“Sweetheart kayo na lang ni Sky pumunta sa school ha! Kailangan kong dalhin si Sunshine kay Doc Tim.”
(akalain mo kapangalan ko pala ang pedia ng kambal 😁)
“It’s okay Sweetheart. I cleared my schedule for this. Basta tawagan mo agad ako kung ano ang sabihin ni Doc ha!”
“Oo naman Sweetheart. Pero duda ko talaga dahil sa kinain nyang alimango kaya siya nagkaroon ng rashes. Nakakaworry lang kasi may fever siya.”
Ricky will be alone with Sky. He loves it. It would be a great opportunity to bond with his youngest son.
Sunshine is sick that’s why the couple decided that only Sky would go to school and attend the party of their classmate.
Leah needs to assist Maya in the clinic so it means Ricky had no choice and he would be alone with Sky.
Doris went home to their province and is even contemplating on leaving the Lim household. She is needed by her aunt who lives alone in the province.
Kaya naman ni Leah yun twins especially that they are attending school now.
“Basta sweetheart nandyan na sa bag yun pamalit na damit, yun towel at powder. Tapos yun snacks naman nandun sa isang bag. May milk din siya at toys in case, alam mo na, sumpungin.”
“Don’t worry about us Sweetheart . Alam ko na lahat yan.”
“O sige sige.”
“Sweetheart mamaya mo na kaya suotan ng costume si Sky. Mainit eh.” Ricky suggested.
Maya was fixing Sky’s Captain America costume, complete with shield and head gear and mask.
“Naku sweetheart wag kokontrahin baka sumpungin. Gustong gusto na nyang isuot kanina pa. At sweetheart yun shield mo at mask wag kakalimutan.”
It was required for the parent to be in costume too pero ayaw ni Ricky kaya he just settled on having a Captain America shield and mask. He was just wearing a shirt and jeans para bagay naman kahit papano yun props niya.
“If not for Sky, hinding hindi ako gagamit nyan Sweetheart. It would make the parents look foolish.”
“Naku Sweetheart makisama ka na lang. Atsaka siyempre gusto nilang maaliw yung mga bata. Baka naman request ng birthday celebrant.”
“Yeah but bakit naman included yun parents?”
“Kasi Sweetheart yun karamihan sa parents dun pwede mo nang maging anak.”
He smirked at tiningnan ng masama si Maya.
“Are you saying I’m old?”
“Di naman old, years ahead lang sa parents sa school ng kambal. Ang sensitive mo!”
He just shook his head.
“Pero Sweetheart bakit Captain America? I look like a fool with this shield.”
“Mas okay yan kesa Hulk or Superman tapos pilitin ka ng anak mong magsuot ng costume. Buti nga pumayag na shield lang ang gamitin mo. Atsaka don’t be kj. You look younger nga kesa sa ibang parents dun kaya keri mo na yan Sweetheart!”
Recently, Sky developed an immense fondness for the Marvel Superheroes. Captain America is his favorite. Si Sunshine naman is so fond of Barbie like her Ate Abby.
3 days ago Leah told Maya that the twins would be attending a birthday party of their classmate. It will be held in the classroom.
When Maya checked the twins school diary, their teacher wrote that the students and their parents are required to be in a hero costume.
They asked Sky and Sunshine and the twins chose Captain America for Sky and supposedly Catwoman for Sunshine.
“O sige na Sweetheart baka malate pa kayo. Nandyan na din yun gift para sa celebrant.”
“Okay. Joma ingat sa pagmaneho ha.”
Then Ricky kissed Sunshine while Maya kissed Sky.
In the car, Sky was so excited. He’s been holding his shield the moment he and his dad entered the car.
“You’re enjoying this Sky?”
The boy gave his dad a beaming smile.
His dad lovingly caressed the top of his head that is covered by his Captain America head gear.
They were caught up in traffic so the moment they arrived in school, all the students are already in their respective classrooms.
The father and son complete with costume and props and also bags for Sky’s needs hurriedly went to the classroom.
Ricky was trailing behind Sky who was already happily running towards his classroom. He was giggling.
The moment the classroom opened, all eyes were on Ricky and Sky.
Nagulat si Ricky. Most parents are in barong. The kids were also in a very different costume from what Sky is wearing.
They were mini versions of Jose Rizal, Andres Bonifacio, Apolinario Mabini, Juan Luna (plug: dito daw kinuha yun name ng resto ni serchief na Luna J), Tandang Sora, Ninoy Aquino and Lapu-lapu.
All eyes were on the father and son. Most parents were controlling their laughter.
Ricky just closed his eyes, shook his head and smiled.
“Sorry there must be some misunderstanding on our part.” He explained.
But Sky was clueless and he was so proud of what he was wearing.
The teacher approached them and everyone had a blast laughing at them even Ricky.
Buti na lang, he already learned the ‘Art of not being pikon’ from his wife.
Pero pikon na pikon sya kay Maya!
Tomorrow is National Heroes Day that’s why they were in Hero costumes.
The boy having his birthday wasn’t involved on why they were in a costume . Nagkataon lang na birthday nya. 😊
“Sweetheart sorry! Malay ko ba na national hero pala! Si Teacher ang may kasalanan. Hindi naman specified na National Hero. Ang isinulat nya eh hero lang naman.”
“Sana lininaw mo. Atsaka National Heroes Day pala bukas di mo man lang naisip?”
“Hep hep! Dalawa tayo. Atsaka mas dapat alam mo kasi mas pang national hero ang edad mo.”
He shook his head. Walang imik. Tumingin lang sa asawa nya.
“Sorry na Sweetheart. Atsaka tuwang tuwa naman ang anak mo oh. Tapos nakita ko na yun pictures kasi nagshare na sa facebook yun mom ng celebrant. O di ba nagstand out ang gwapong mag-ama ko. Halika ka nga pakiss!”
Yan wala na! Abswelto na naman ang Maya!
*True story to. Nangyari sa pamangkin ko at bro-in-law ko a few years ago. Pero buti si Ricky shield lang ang gamit. Si bro-in-law complete Captain America costume. Pero buti hindi Hulk ang costume nila which is my nephew’s fave superhero.
Naalala ko lang kasi kakatapos lang ng National Heroes Day at kasama ko sila kanina. Always naming binabalikan ang anecdote nila na yan. 😁😁😁
