March 1: On our way back home from his karate class I heard my son muttering in the back seat. “So did you enjoy your class today Evan?” I asked to start a conversation. “Shhhh be quiet,” I was told. “I am telling a story to myself.” Oh, okay.
March 2: Bedtime. Evan:”When I am old I will be very excited to go to heaven – so I can meet you there.” Me: “Only when you’re very, very, very old.”
March 8: Tom explaining to Evan his wisdom tooth surgery for Thursday: The dentist will take out the tooth because it’s infected. Evan: Let me see! Tom: You can’t see it because it’s under my gum. Evan: Why did you swallow a gum?

March 16: has taken to say grace before meals even during the smallest snacks.
March 17: during our reading lessons for the word “wine” I commented, “that’s daddy’s favorite word.” Evan: “sometimes I do that too.”
March 19: I was in another room when I heard Evan calling me. Somehow, I couldn’t distinguish his words even if I asked him to repeat it. So I finally had to approach him and ask him again. “What is it Evan?” I asked. “My dibdib hurts.” No wonder I didn’t understand him, I wasn’t expecting a tagalog word in there.
