My two boys were quarreling over a toy this morning. Grabbing the opportunity to teach Markus to wait for his turn. Our conversation turned like this:
Mommy: Markus, wait for your turn. Be patient.
Markus: Ayaw ko ng patient. (I don't like to be patient)
Mommy: Markus, be patient. Wait for kuya to finish playing with the toy.
Markus: Wag lang patient. Ayaw ko ng patient. (Don't tell me to be patient. I don't want to be patient)
Mommy: Be patient...
Markus: Mommy, hindi ako patient, doctor ako! (Mommy, I'm not a patient, I'm a doctor!)
