samil gets kind of upset when someone leaves for work. it's not inconsolable emotion, but he gets worried, i think.
so, we've started telling him we have to go to work to make money. because, really, what 3 year old doesn't understand money?
yesterday morning he called me at work.
"mami, donde estas?" (where you at, momma)
"trabajando for money?" (working for money?)
"traime chicle, mami" (bring me some gum).
then my dad called the house and samil asked him, too, where he was. he was at work, so samil wanted to know how much money he was making.
guess he's looking for how many christmas presents he'll be getting.
