Hank and Molly choosing houses on the way to drop Mano (brother) at school.

 

Me: (reading on the sofa)

Hank: Mama?

Me: Hum?

Hank: Can I take a study break?

Me: Of course.  The best way to study is to focus calmly and then walk away from the material to see what you have truly retained.

Hank: Okay.

Me: (going back reading)

Hank? Mama?

Me: Hum?

Hank: Can you make me a cup of tea?

Me: Sure I can.

Hank: And can you make you a cup of tea and can we drink a cup of tea, and use sugar cubes and milk and talk, just us, while Amália and Avó (grandmother) are napping?

Me: I have been waiting my whole life for this invitation.

Hank: You have?

Me: (getting up to put the kettle on) You have no idea.
