December 26th, 2014

Episode 173 of 463 episodes

Bring up a child can be expensive. Learn how to talk about all the things you’ll need for a new baby in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:17 Explanations: 3:36 Fast dialog: 16:30 Wanda: Oh hi, I wasn’t expecting you today. Enrique: We’ve been cleaning out our garage and your sister said I should come by with a few things for your baby. Wanda: That’s really sweet of you guys, but I’m not due for another six months. Enrique: But you’ll need these things to get the baby’s room ready, right? Wanda: Well, we don’t actually have a baby room set up yet. Enrique: There’s no time like the present. Here’s a crib and the mattress. It just needs to be assembled. Oh, here are some bumper pads that go with it. Wanda: Great. Enrique: Here’s a changing table. Wanda: Wow, that’s really big. Enrique: Here are two car seats, one for infants and one for toddlers, and here’s a booster seat. Wanda: That’s a lot of stuff. Are you sure you want to part with all this? Enrique: Positive. Here’s a basic baby monitor and a video monitor so you can keep tabs on the little one. Wanda: Whoa, what’s in all these bags? Enrique: They’re baby and kids clothes. You’ll need more than you think. Wanda: That’s really generous of both of you, but are you sure you want to give it all to me? Enrique: Of course, you’re family and this will help you save a lot of money. Wanda: And it’ll free up garage space for your new workshop? Enrique: Well, why not kill two birds with one stone? Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
