Their "Cousin" Fox

My nephew and niece are obsessed about Fox, our semi-newly adopted dog.

See, back home (in the Philippines), we have pets at home but we do not treat them as family as much as people do here in the US. They are our protectors, the common nickname for dogs there is "Bantay," which means "Guard." Dogs there are trained to bark whenever someone they do not know knocks. This is the first time ever that I have to take care of a toy dog. A tiny, tiny dog.

So when the kids learned that we adopted a dog and saw pictures of him, one of the things they started to love doing is Facetime with me Fox. I would follow Fox around the house or just point my phone at him while I make him do his tricks. I've also been sending my sister videos of the pooch so they have something to look at when they get home from school.

How I wish it was super easy for us to see each other so they can play with Fox and I can train them to be Fox's walkers ;)

Love Triangle

We were in the car when...

Reese:     Mom why in a love story, there's always this other one who cries? (she was using her fingers, two were together and the other finger was far away)
Mom:      What do you mean?  Where did you see that?
Reese:     On TV and in movies.  When two people are in love, somebody, another person cries.
Mom:      Oh, sometimes people, they become sad......

It's so hard to explain. OMG.
I hope you never get to experience that my princess.

Double meaning

So last night when Joshua's dad was getting ready for work...

Josh:     Dad can you leave?
Ria(the mother):  Josh that's not a nice thing to say... Why do you want daddy to leave?
Josh:     No, I mean can you take a leave from office? A day off?

Haha! Sorry Josh...
