The Fly On The Wall Sees Bella Again!

Once again, I am participating the Fly on the Wall group post since I found it interesting. Fly on the Wall is a monthly post by a group of bloggers challenged to let our readers see what it might be like to be a fly on the wall in our homes. Each post is not a single story, but a compilation of snippets, each one its own quote or event or conversation (or disaster) strung together to provide a behind-the-scenes glimpse into our lives. 

Today 14 bloggers are inviting you to catch a glimpse of what you’d see if you were a fly on the wall in our homes. If the fly on the wall would buzz around my house, it would catch a glimpse of every cute, smart, naughty and funny things by two year old daughter does. We speak a different language here but she speaks English so what you are about to read are her exact words. So, come on in my house as a fly on the wall!

Fly on the Wall

Bella’s version of Hansel and Gretel.

Once upon a time, Hansel and Gretel went to the woods. They called the witch, (hands cuffed in mouth) “”Wiiiiiiitttttttcccchhhhhhh, whereeeee aaaarrrreee yyyooouuuuuuuuuu??” 

The witch came. The witch came up. The witch came down. The witch came up. The witch came down. The witch came up. The witch came down. The witch is tired.

The End


Bella’s better version of Hansel and Gretel.

Once upon a time, Hansel and Gretel went to the woods. 

The witch came out and said, “Why are you eating my house?” (big harsh voice)

“We’re sorry! We’re very hungry!” (small childish voice)

“Okay. Come inside and I will give you more foodie.” (big harsh voice)

The witch said, ”Can you put fire in the oven?” (big harsh voice again)

Then, Hansel pushed the witch inside the oven. The witch was cooked.

The witch is a loser.

The End

I’m impressed that she could do storytelling like this especially with the varying voices same way as I tell her stories.



Bella’s version of The Lion and the Mouse. (She replaced Lion with Tiger.)

Once upon a time, there was a mouse. The mouse came up the tree. There was a mommy mouse and a daddy mouse. The family is good.

The Tiger came. The Tiger is a baby. Uhhmmm. No, it is not a baby. It is a woman. A woman in highschool and she loves trees.

The mouse said, “Okay.” (small voice)

The Tiger said, “Okay.” (big harsh voice) “Thanks, my friend.”

The End.

Bella threw her toy penguin down the stairs. But she didn’t mind at first. We left home and when we came back, that was the first thing she saw. She ran towards it and said, “Oh my! Are you okay?” 

She held her toy and started climbing the stairs and said, “Don’t worry. It’ll be okay. Trust me.”


Bella: Mommy, I want to go to the pool!

Me: Next time.

Bella: No, I want to go there now.

Me: Next time Bella. Not now.

Bella: Okay. Uhmmm..how about now?

Me: No.

Bella: How about now?

Me: NO

Bella: How about now?

Me: Nooo..

Bella: How about nowwww???

She repeated it like forever.



Bella sitting on her diapers (still inside the package). Took her milk cans and her toy spoon and fork. And sang like rock and roll:

“1.2.3.4…(hitting the spoon on the fork) ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ. Boys and girls come sing with me. Now I know my ABC. ONE MORE TIME!”

And we bought her drums.


Sleeping time is always a hard time for Bella. One time, I asked her to sleep. She cried a lot. 

Me: Bella, go to bed. NOW. 

Bella: Noooo…Idon’t want to sleep!

Me: You will sleep.

Bella was sobbing as she walked to the bed and said, “Yooouuu can’t do this! Yooouu can’t do this to me!”



Bella noticed my cracked lips.

Bella: Mommy, your mouth is ugly. There is a black part on it.

Me: That’s okay.

Bella: Mommmy! Your mouth is UGLY! Mommmy! Your mouth is UGLY! Mommmy! Your mouth is UGLY! Mommmy! Your mouth is UGLY! Mommmy! Your mouth is UGLY!

Okay Bella. I got that.


Me: Bella, if you are afraid of the monster, what will you do?
Bella: I don’t know Mom.
Me: You just pray and smile.
Bella: Ohhh realllyyy?? Does it work??

Bella: Mom, your nose is like a mouse’s nose. Come, I’ll fix it.

She placed her fingers on my nose and pretended to tweak it.

Bella: There. It is fixed. It’s nice now.

Reallyyy???lol


Brother intentionally sang Let It Go with the wrong lyrics.

Brother: Let you go. Let you go. It’s no turning back anymore…

Bella: No! It’s not let you go! It’s Let It Go!

And she sang it. 


Bella hugged her Dad and me while her Lalaloopsy doll Mittens was on her arms. She said:

“This is my family. I have a baby. But my baby is not a baby. It is a Mittens.”

Her Daddy was leaving and she was crying.

Bella: Daddy, no. No bag. Don’t say goodbye.

Daddy: I will just buy ice cream and lots of Lalaloopsy.

Bella smiled and said: Okay. Goodbye!

It was 2 in the morning and Bella is still wide awake. Hubby and I thought of acting like its brownout so she will sleep and stop watching TV. I turned off all the lights and the TV.

Me: Bella, it’s brownout! (holding her as if to make sure she won’t be afraid of the dark)
Bella: Mommy! No! The aircon is turned on! Don’t turn off the TV!
Me: It is brownout Bella, we can’t turn on the TV.
Bella: No, mommy. It’s not brownout. The aircon is on!
Our little lady in the house is running here and throwing her toys everywhere. I called her attention and asked her to stop. I was getting mad so I went to her and held her.

Me: I’m gonna give you a super spank coz you’re a bad baby. You’re hard headed!
Bella: Not super spank. Only super hug! (she hugs me)
Me: But you are a bad baby. You don’t listen to mommy.
Bella: Bella is not bad. She is just pretty.

Bought new clothes for Bella and her favorite was the onesie with a tutu. It looks like a ballerina’s clothing and she calls it a princess dress. While wearing it, she dances like Jewel in the Lalaloopsy Movie: The Search for the Missing Pillow.

Bella sings like Jewel. Pirouette like a ballerina all around the house. We didn’t know that while dancing, she was doing another thing: she pooped. All of a sudden, she stopped and started wiping poop on her new “princess dress”. Then she screamed:

“Who placed poop on my princess dress??”


Bella: Mommy is a witch. Bella is a pumpkin.
Me: What? Where did you learn that?
Bella: Mommy is a witch. Bella is a pumpkin.
Brother1: How about Uncle2? What is he?
Bella: Uncle2 is a pig.

My youngest brother is fat. That explains.

Bella has many Lalaloopsy dolls. I told her that I’m gonna buy her two new Lalas but these were stuffed toys since I saw two at the store. When I got to the store I was surprised that it was so expensive to think that they were mere imitations of the real doll. So, I only bought one. When I arrived home, I gave her the paperbag with the new stuffed toy and she was happy to see Mittens Fluff ‘n’ Stuff.

But after seeing Mittens, she dug into the paper bag and threw it away. She opened my bag and dug into it too.

I guess she was looking for the other Lala. I promised to buy her two.

Hubby went to the city where we came from. The reason why we are in a new home is because Typhoon Haiyan ruined our house in Palo, Leyte. Bella didn’t know that his Dad left early in the morning while she is still sleeping.

Bella: Where is daddy?
Me: He is in Tacloban.
Bella: He is buying egg? He is buying surprise for Bella?
Me: Yah. He is buying surprise for Bella. (No idea about the egg!lol) Do you want to go to Tacloban?
Bella: No. Tacloban is far. Tacloban is broken.

Yah. Once you see the destruction of the typhoon, you will agree with her.


Bella couldn’t get over the destruction Typhoon Haiyan brought to our home. She would still repeatedly say:

“No more upstairs. No more roof. No more walls. No more bedroom. No more doors. No more windows. No more ice cream. No more popcorn. No more toys. No more Lalaloopsy. No more cake. No more computer. No more chopstick. ”
I don’t know where the chopstick came from.


Mother was sewing some clothes and Bella kept on running around her and grabbing her stuffs.
Grandmama: Bella, if you won’t behave, I’m gonna spank you hard.

Bella keeps on running and disturbing her.

Grandmama: Bella! Come over here! (getting mad and wanted to spank her)
Bella: Hmm..Bella is just going.

And she left the room.
Hubby arrives and Bella came running to meet him.

Bella: Daddy! Daddy is here! (hugged and kissed her Dad)
Daddy: Hi Bella. How are you?
Bella: (Smiles) Daddy wants to buy ice cream. Daddy wants to buy burger. Daddy wants to buy French fries. Daddy wants to buy pizza. Daddy wants to buy spaghetti. Daddy wants to buy vegetables. Daddy wants to buy apple. Daddy wants to buy banana. Daddy wants to buy toys. Daddy wants to buy dress. Daddy wants to buy everything!

Daddy laughs.

Bella: Hmm…what else?
Hubby is working and was away from home for a few days. Bella is wondering where her Dad is.

Bella: Mommy, I want to ride a rocket.
Me: Why? We don’t have a rocket.
Bella: I want to ride a rocket to find Daddy.

Sweet.

Hubby wanted to buy a pet for Bella but I disapprove because it isn’t Bella who will look after the pet but it is me. I have so many works to do and I can no longer attend to a pet. He asked Bella what she wants for a pet.

Daddy: Bella, do you want Daddy to buy you lovebirds?
Bella: No.
Daddy: Okay. How about a gold fish?
Bella: No.
Daddy: What do want?
Bella: I want an elephant.

Bella was suppose to go to school last November but then the Super Typhoon came and changed everything. One night, she remembered about going to school.

Bella: Bella wants to go to school Mommy.
Me: Okay but not now because your school is still broken. (she calls it that way)
Bella: Bella can’t go to school because the school is broken.
Me: Yes. You can go to school in June. (classes starts on June in our country)
Bella: Yey! I’m so excited! Papa wants to fix the school. Uncle wants to fix the school. Daddy wants to fix the school. Mommy wants to help.

Guess she wants the school to be fixed at once with all that man power!
