Walking home from the mercado today, my 3 year old exclaimed:
"GRACIAS bus!" (Then giggles with true joy and relief)
Silence while I look behind us, as a bus pulls away from the curb, wondering what she is thanking bus for.
Then she explains as she raises her eyebrows and motions with her hand-
"Bus hit me, no!? Ay, *Gigglegigglegiggle* gracias bus!"
She smiles and sighs. What a relief! She must be really concerned about being plastered by a city bus.
