Hank: Mama! I have two cuecas (underwear) on!
Me: Ha! How did that happen?
Hank: You see, I was putting on another cuecas (underwear) without taking one off.
Me: You are double cuecas-ed (underwear-ed).
Hank: So silly. (snickers)
Hank: Mama, Where is the ipad? I would like to play games, please.
Me: (looking up from my book) Really? Cause I think you should just keep it to imagination this morning, buddy.
Hank: But I don’t have any imagination.
Me: Is your imagination tank running empty?
Me: And we’re stuck inside with the rain.
Me: Ok. First, please pick up all your cars and Playmobil, then come and get me and you can have the ipad.
(Fifteen minutes later… Still no Hank… Thirty minutes later… I investigate. Hank is in his room playing an elaborate city center, block buildings, traffic, Playmobil scenario.)
Hank: Oh Hi, my mama.
Me: Looks like your imagination tank is full up again.
Hank: Yes, this trânsito (traffic) is stopped because this town is having a festa (festival) in this town and all the people want to see drumming.
Me: Cool it is a drumming festa? Like the Festa do Pinherio (Pine Tree Festival)? Can I play? I want to see the festa.
Hank: Of course!
