Donde estan translacion?

My dear friend, Stacie, informed me in the comments that she thought "vamanos" means "let's go". And it's not that I don't trust her because she did spend half a summer in some Spanish-speaking country (Where I think she learned how to say "Donde estan lavatorio?" a lot, bless her heart.) but I had to find out for sure. I had been told vamanos meant "hurry".

Well, not only did I confirm that vamanos does indeed mean "let's go" in Spanish, but I also learned how to ask

Donde estan sus armas?

I'm sure that will come in handy in my chosen profession.

LOL I was gonna tell you that too...I only know because Destiny has a Dora the Explorer potty seat and written all over it is "Vamanos! Let's go!"

Who lost their arm?

MamaKBear said...

Where are your arms?

Where are the weapons?

No señale esa arma en mí! ;)

Mama K, Vamanos! Donde estan lavatorio?

Jennifer, Dora is enlightening. In an annoying preschool kind of way.

Nope, close.

Mama K, close!

Recklace, YES! Being a displaced Texan comes in handy occasionally, eh?

¿Qué arma entonces indica?

Tu vive in Oklahoma, en el pais. Tu necesita un arma!

Tres anos de espanol, y mi profesor era de Peru. Despues, la mayoria de mis pacientes de farmacia son mexicanos!

Ahh, Dora. Not since the hay days of Sesame Street has a show brought samll Spanish phrases into the vocabulary of our preschoolers.
Come on, vamanos! Everybody "LET'S GO!"
Since I've changed jobs, I no longer have to watch good ole Dora EVERY DAY. Only occasionly when someone pops in "Dora~Fiesta" do I get the honors.
It was cute watching my little babies say "Pack-pack! Pack-pack!"

We....the people
