Que?


Okay, everyone, let's test your high school Spanish: who knows how to say, "Do you really eat tomatoes on your toast, or are you just messing with me, kid?" in Spanish? I am babysitting my nieces Annie and Jaelyn and their Chilean cousin Nico, who speaks very little English. I am attempting to make breakfast for Nico and I think he's telling me that he eats tomatoes on his toast and "leche con chocolate" for breakfast. Chocolate milk for breakfast? Hmm. I totally get chocolate milk for breakfast. I get it. Tomatoes--a vegetable-like food--aren't those usually reserved for after 4 pm? Personally, I only eat vegetables after 4 pm. I think the Chilean is messing with me. Why, oh why did I take Japanese in high school?!
P.S. School picture day! Thanks for letting me borrow your scanner while I babysit, Carrie!

ha ha ha! um...is he saying quiero tamatos y pan? I have lost ALL of my spanish! But that is pretty funny. Does he want ketchup? still strange, but maybe.

I had a dream the other night that I came to your house and you were raising wild animals to sell to the zoo. You had lion cubs running around and your backyard was a big salt water aquarium with giant sucker fish who were trying to eat macey's sippy cups!...I know...where did all that come from?...no idea, it was a very funny dream though!

Update: Nico (who is four-years-old, by the way) does, in fact, eat tomatoes on his toast. And their toilets flush backwards.

Love Macey's picture...she looks so grown up, and absolutely beautiful! Just looking at her parents, and I should have known they would have beautiful children!
