I can't believe my youngest child is graduating kindergarten today! It seems like just yesterday she was a baby and now she is almost 6 years old, lost two teeth, is learning to read and can swim. My oldest child is graduating from elementary school today, moving on to Jr high school. My two middle children are moving on up too. Where does the time go? I'm going to blink my eyes and my babies will be grown.

Nico:

Something else drew my attention to this video. Almost as soon as I began to watch it, I thought of this earlier Post/Thread of yours. I hope you will enjoy the video.

See the video here:
Kahlil Gibran - Sobre los Hijos

See Kahlil Gibran's work (in English) from which the video was conceived here:
http://leb.net/~mira/works/prophet/prophet4.html

And, for the English Language video, see:
Kahlil Gibran - On Children

Querida NicoLoca:

Tengo una hija y tres hijos. Ellos son maduros e idos de nuestra casa. Tenemos tres nietos, una nieta y dos nietos. Los sentimientos que tienes hoy en día nunca te dejarán. Sus niños vinieron de su matriz, pero sus impresiónes se queda dentro de usted. Eso es lo que significa para ser sus madre.

Vivan las madres.

Hi,Eric.
I understood what do you said.
But is not clear when you say...
Usted puede ir a la universidad si lo desea, Ok still here. But..."pero no tiene demasiado", that is the sentence that I don't understand what do you mean.
Do you understand me?

hola Eric,
Entendi lo que me dijiste.
Pero no esta claro cuando dices...
Usted puede ir a la universidad si lo desea, Ok hasta aqui lo entiendo. Pero..."pero no tiene demasiado", esta es la frase que no entiendo, que quieres decir?
Me entiendes'

I told her I didn't know if I worded it right...

Sorry, Eric. I didn't want you to take that as criticism. You're doing great! Really. We are all here to learn, and I appreciate it when someone corrects my errors. Otherwise, how else can I learn and improve, right?

After looking more closely at your sentence, I think I understand now what you meant. Were you trying to say, "You can go to college if you want, but you don't have to"?

If that is the case, you would say, "... pero no es obligatorio", or, "... pero no tiene que hacerlo".

The word "demasiado" is usually an adjecteive meaning "too much" or "too many," as in "demasiada agua" or "demasiados perros"; or an adverb meaning "too" or "too much," as in "demasiado grande" or "Vas demasiado despacio" or "Comes demasiado".

Hope that helps some! It took me a while to learn to use "demasiado" the right way, so don't feel bad.

Good job, Eric. "Onceavo" is for a fraction, like "one eleventh" (1/11).

Usted puede ir a la universidad si lo desea, pero no tiene demasiado****.

(Pienso [Creo is probably better here] que escribí eso correctamente.)

Lo siento por mi mal español. shut eye

Tell us what you mean here, Eric, and maybe we can help you out.
