Inglês com humor: The New Baby

Vamos começar a semana com este textinho bem divertido sobre a inocência de uma criança de seis anos e seu irmãozinho que vai nascer.

For weeks a six-year-old boy kept telling his first-grade teacher about the baby brother or sister that was expected at his house.

kept telling – ficou dizendo
first-grade teacher – professora da primeira série
was expected – esperavam, era esperado

One day the mother allowed the boy to feel the movements of the unborn child. The six-year-old was obviously impressed, but made no comment. Furthermore, he stopped telling his teacher about the impending event.

allowed – permitiu
to feel – sentir
unborn child – feto, “criança não nascida” (lit.)
obviously impressed – obviamente impressionado
made no comment – não fez comentário
furthermore – além disso
impending event – acontecimento vindouro, futuro

The teacher finally sat the boy on her lap and said, “Tommy, whatever has become of that baby brother or sister you were expecting at home?”

sat the boy on her lap – sentou o menino em seu colo
whatever has become – o que aconteceu

Tommy burst into tears and confessed, “I think Mommy ate it!”

burst into tears – começou a chorar de repente
