My Crazy Husband’s Funny Quips: The Baby Edition
It’s time to recount Joey’s funny and mapapakamot-ka-na-lang-sa-ulo utterances once again, before we get busy with Lilibubs’ arrival and I forget every funny thing he has said! I do hope you enjoyed the first one, and know that during the course of my blogging life, special editions of his quips will regularly make it to the site, hihi!
I hope you enjoy and he makes you laugh with his saan-mo-napulot at ang-weird-mo-talaga-mag-isip anecdotes! :D
And so, without further ado, I present to you..
Sometime ago, on the discussion of baby names:
Joey: “Maganda kung yung second name, pang-mayaman.” He then ticks off examples, “Camila Ayala Sorongon, Joseph Yuchengco Remitio Ramirez..”
And then he also thought up the most awful nickname:
“Emmanuelle Bornaline B. Ramirez. Nickname: Embornal!”
Then he added the rich-sounding surname..:
“Emmanuelle Bornaline Romualdez B. Ramirez”
Upon finding out we were pregnant:
“YES!! IT WORKS!!” (You know..)
On what our baby will inherit:
“Magmamana sa akin lahat, singing voice lang makukuha sa’yo.” Wow, thanks ha.
Before we found out we were having a girl:
“Time to pray for a healthy baby…boy.”
When asked what if we were having a girl, his first response was:
“Yung mapapangasawa niya ang magpapalit ng pangalan, para Ramirez pa rin apelyido niya.”
There were also times before when he would raise my arms and check my armpits if they got dark (owing to the popular opinion that when a woman’s armpits get dark, she’s automatically carrying a boy). But then he would shake his head and disappointedly say, “Maputi pa rin e.”
It is only during pregnancy that I’ve eaten anything and everything. It is also the only time EVER in my life when I had let gas out in Joey’s presence. One time, when I shared with him that I couldn’t stand the smell of my own poop, he exclaimed:
“HAHAHA! Lalaki nga yan! THAT’S MY SON!!”
His theme song at this stage:
“One little two little three little Joeyboys
Four little five little six little Joeyboys
Seven little eight little nine little Joeyboys
TEN LITTLE JOEYBOYS!”
Inaykupo. Ang pwerta ko.
When I told him that a lot of people think we’re having a girl, he sadly lowered his head and uttered:
“Me against the world.”
I asked him one evening kung kanino siya nagmana ng kakulitan niya. Kasi exaj talaga guys as in, ANG KULIT KULIT KULIT NIYA SA TOTOONG BUHAY! This was what he said:
Grabe yung tawa ko!!!
The origin of Libubs and Lilibubs:
When we announced on social media that we were expecting, I christened him “Dadbubs”. A few days after, he texts me:
Joey: “Pwede ba kita tawaging Mubs, short for Mombubs?”
Me: “E kung yun ang itatawag mo sa akin, e di dapat Dubs ang tawag ko sa’yo.”
Joey: “Ayaw ko.”
Me: “E ano’ng itatawag natin kay Little Bubs?”
Joey, no hesitation at all: “Libubs.”
And so Libubs has stuck specifically because it rhymes with “libag” *smh*. At our gender reveal, he requested for Team Libubs for a boy and Team Lilibubs for a girl.
When we’ve finally decided on the name Issiah Dañelle and the family was asking what her nickname will be,
Joey: “Isda! Tatawagin ko siyang FISH! Parang yung character ni Jada Pinkett sa Gotham!”
When I asked him what could we name our next baby if it was a boy:
Joey: “Isaiah Dan nlng para hindi na tayo mag-isip.”
Every time he talks to Lilibubs, he does his best impression of a Darth Vader voice and says (you guessed it):
“I.. am.. your.. father.”
And his latest LOL comment, coming from an evening when delivery was talked about and it was mentioned that there is that possibility that poop may come out along with the baby (because a woman’s body uses the same muscles for pushing a poop and a baby):
Joey, talking to Lilibubs before he went to sleep:
“Good night, Lilibubs. Mauna ka sa t*e ha?”
HAHAHAHAHAHA NAKAKALOKA TALAGA 😅
Nawa’y makatulog kayo nang may ngiti sa inyong labi dahil sa mga kalokohan ng asawa ko 😂
Thank you for reading!
