Midnight at the van Stratens
Posted on

Me: Jers, whenever you leave your mug on the ledge, you know a lizard enters your mug.
Jeroen: Cute no?

As rodent-phobes, I thought Jeroen would get grossed out, take the mug to the kitchen and wash it. But at 11 PM, there was no way he was getting out of bed.
Jeroen: Dear, could you please bring the mug to the kitchen?
Me: No, I’m tired.
Jeroen: I got your water kanina.
Me: I bought your shampoo.

No one moved.
Ben, the intruder, is sleeping on our bed again. At midnight, Markus comes in looking for the charger for his game.
Jeroen: Markus, can you please sleep na.
Markus: I need my charger.
Me: Jer, just turn on the light so he can find it.
(Puts on light.)

Markus: Daddy, cockroach!!
Jeroen: Where? Wha? Whu?? (panic. gets up. PAK! PAK! PAK!)

Jeroen kills the cockroach with the rage of a terrorist.
Ben: Daddy, why did you have to use my Crocs??!!
Jeroen: Because it’s the first thing I saw!
Ben: (upset) Why do you always use my Crocs to kill cockroach??

Me: (looks up to see cockroach juice on the wall. deadma. sleep, spare me. please.)

 This had me cracking up in the dead of the night! I remember what happened during our teambuilding, may roach na lumilipad sa boy’s room at 4am and those wrestler-huge guys were screaming like girls! Except for one who was KO-ed by Valium. Malas lang that guy, sa kanya lumanding ang slipper at dead roach, hehehe 😛

I can smell ipis as I enter the room. Takot talaga ako sa ipis and will refuse to enter the room if I smell it. for that reason, as a child, I use to smell food before eating which irritated my mom . flying ipis, aatakihin siguro ako sa puso. other than fumigation, how do you stop them from entering your screened house?

If there’s a roach in the room, hindi ko kaya i-dedma. I’m super scared of roaches, so are my daughters. Solution: monthly fumigation.

Ako din. And they  always fly straight to my hair, ewan ko ba.

Also, a joke that always gets me: Flying ipis = Ipis na feeling butterfly.  LOL!

haha… well, at least you’ve outgrown the phase in which you’re rudely waken up by the nocturnal whining of “mama, nag wee-wee akoo”… followed by the realization that your back and behind are warm, wet, and stinky. (this is what happens when toddlers invade your bed…)

the fact that this is such a typical household family situation makes it all the more enjoyable to read. i have been in that situation numerous times. esp love the part when you guys tell each other what you have done for the day just to get away from doing something else! lol 🙂
