  1. Hahahaaaaaaaa – I’m sure it did sound cute. That’s one of the toughest things as parents, sometimes we want to laugh but we need to keep a serious face.

    OMG I was laughing out loud over here b/c when my little one was 3, she said it too but only b/c she hears me say it ALL THE TIME!! She’s six now. Oh and btw, I LOVED that show.

      Lisa, I just can’t imagine you saying carajo…It’s hard not to curse in Spanish…I usually say “me cago…”

  3. LOL, oh funny!! Kid’s are the best!

    I remember my family in San Juan saying “Caray!” When little kids drop bombs it does sound cute!!

    • Carrie says:

      Maria, my grandfathers both said “Ay, caray” a lot. And that is when you usually knew you’d better run. You know what I’m saying…

  5. Ok, I laughed out loud when I read that! Love the story, and the context, and the wonderful way you were able to address the use of language. :) And, BTW, In the Heights is absolutely one of my all time *favorite* theater productions (not just musicals) — and I’ve seen quite a few for not living in NYC…

      Gracias, Aurelia. You know, I’m not a huge Broadway fan, but I am so glad we saw In the Heights..I’m looking forward to the movie.

  6. I love this musical and I love the word carajo!

    Too cute! Went to see In the Heights a couple of years ago when visiting my friend in NYC- absolutely loved it!! I wanted to get out of my seat and dance practically the entire show :-)

  9. Carrie says:

    Beth, lucky for seeing it in NYC. I would have loved that. The traveling production was great. It was at TPAC.

    (I have to tell you about my kid meeting Jeni, by the way!)
