I was complaining to my daughters about how fat I thought I was. Both Alex and Gabby assured me I was in the normal range. (I could always count on them to boost my ego. Haha!) Then Gab gave me an advise:
"Mommy, dapat kinausap mo yung dietrician na katabi ko dati." Take note, DIETRICIAN.
Dietician - now where did a 6-year old learn of this word? How did she come to know of its meaning, of what a dietician does? And how did she know it was a dietician I should consult?
Turns out there was a girl who played the role of a dietician in their school's prep graduation program. Gab had played the role of a nurse. She wasn't really after the role or having a solo on the program. She wanted the props - a first aid kit with plastic band aids, scissors, thermometer, eye chart, etc.
She had played the same role in a previous program. She was initially chosen to play the role of a doctor but she became teary-eyed because the doctor only had a stethoscope for props. So the teacher told her she'd be one of the nurses. She was allowed to bring home the first aid kit.
(Take note: marami pa siyang pang-Ms. Universe pose. Walang nagturo sa kanya nang ganyan.)
