My Young Paduan

My older sister drops off her youngest daughter, Carmi (one year and six months) at my office every day now as she, my Ate, has to do her work for the next couple of weeks. I have my own room at the office so it’s perfectly fine. I really don’t mind too since Carmi is such a perfect angel. It’s always wonderful to have her around. When other companies have their “company pets,” we consider Carmi as our “company mascot.” Her smile can really melt our hearts and she helps cheer up the mood. She once did this thing of following me around the production area as I was looking over the shoulder of one of the developers while I had my hands on my waist. When I looked down, I saw Carmi doing exactly the same thing. Ahhh… My second minime, imagine that.

I should start training her about how to go about with work this early. I should make her …. My Young Paduan. She did this really cute thing when she saw a broom on the floor and knew what it was for and it was such a cute moment that I was so lucky to have my camera with me that time. This is the proof that Carmi is going to grow up to be a responsible person and that she will be just like her tita Honey. Hahaha:

P.S. This morning, my three little nieces Kitkat (minime #1), Nina and Kara woke me up. It was so sweet of kitkat to ask me if I still had a headache and she started massaging my forehead and the other little one followed suite by massaging my hand. Then I got to have breakfast with them. What a great way to start the day!
