If you buy some, buy those with yogurt. What? We also ate chocolate chips. We ate Hershey smoothies. -It is too far. -It isn't! -??? -This family is so complicated.

The home address and the postal code are required because they provide a report to the ministry. Tell her to send it via text message. You can send a text message. He was thinking of going to the caretaker service tomorrow noon. An O. O-E-U. Plays with??? What did you write here? Ah. With... OK... Paul and... His... His dog. Who is it? It's Guillaume. Guillaume, what's up? Hey Guillaume, let's introduce you. Let us introduce you to Zachary's best friend. His name is Guillaume. Guillaume is a great piano player. He is going to play video games with Zachary. OK, let's finish filling in these forms. OK, that's done for Joaquim. Are there any fees for this? I don't remember. There is no weight limit, however, people of more than 275 pounds simply cannot fit in the safety harness. -Is that what is written there? -Well, yes. So you do it, but without a security harness. What else is there? OK, I am going to take a shower. This is a new room that we added to the house last fall. Originally, this was the attic above the garage. There was no room here. And our wardrobes were taking up space. So I decided to build a spacious storage for our clothes here. And to bring the drier here, so we don't need to walk downstairs with the dirty laundry. and come up again with the clean clothes, every time. So we wash the clothes here. Then we dry it, then ??? This way, we avoid a lot of... walking, back and forth, up and down, with the boy's clothes. There are only Zachary's clothes. Zachary lives... Since a few months, he sleeps in the basement. So only his clothes must be brought upstairs and downstairs. He does that. It's really not that bad. Even if we can listen to the news while doing the laundry. ??? we can hang it up to dry before leaving for work. Before, we had a nice front-loading energy-efficient washing machine that used less water. The problem with the front-loading washers is that there are 2 tubs, one within the other. Then water with residue from the clothes stagnates between the 2 tubs. And then it starts smelling. The laundry was smelly. Then, when we went to consult with specialist, they told us "Well yes, every time between laundries, you need to rinse the tub." So we wondered where the water-saving capability was if for one load, you needed to make two. So we bought a washer, but not a front-loading washer, that uses more water than a front-loading machine, but there is no need to make two loads for one. We'll come back here later. I am following you everywhere. So, for the shower, for example... Here, I'll leave you by yourself. We'll see us in 15 or 20 minutes. Yes, I need to shave before I take my shower. -Shaving is not too intimate, so... -No. I can see myself in the mirror. That's not a good idea. I'll stay here.
