Money Conversations with Lil Girl

10.14.2013 8:15 am
Conversation with my youngest daughter during breakfast...
Youngest: Ma, pila na ang $10? (How much is $10?)
Me: 400 pesos langga. (400 pesos, honey.)
Youngest: four-zero-zero?
Me: Yes.
Youngest: Ngee, kamahal. (Nyay, so pricey.)
After a few seconds...
Youngest: Ma, may pa ang snow sa America kay kwarta. (Mom, it's a good thing if the snow in America is money.)
Me: Ha? Ngano man? (Huh? Why is that?)
Youngest: Basta. (Nothing.)
Me: (Hilig jud ni cyag kwarta oi. Hahaha!)
After a few minutes of silence, I asked her...
Me: Nicky, unsa imong gusto pagdako nimo? (Nicky, what do you want in the future?)
Youngest: Moadto ug America. (To go to America.)
By the way, my youngest is still 5 years old but then I reckon she have a like for money as she can buy food that she wants to eat and things that she want to wear.

When December came, I’m quite worried because it’s my eldest daughter's birthday. I didn’t get to buy food for her celebration on the day itself (same with my youngest daughter’s birthday last November). Then, I received a text notification from someone in the middle of the night. I’m so happy and thankful! We can finally celebrate her birthday although we had it 2 days after. Here is the food that we have for our simple birthday celebration: Birthday Cake (Chocolate Moist) Since my daughters didn’
