English Acquisition: Revisted

Any guesses as to what my children were attempting to convey with the following words??  (I figured it out, I just thought it’d be fun to hear everyone elses interpretations)

Fikadu: “Mommy, upstairs water coming.”

Tigist: “Baby Jesus, Mommy kiss.”  (Hint: She’s pointing to something on her while saying this)


Fikadu was looking out the window and explaining that it was raining.

Tigist was pointing at a freckle.  Apparently they call freckles Mary Kisses in Ethiopia.
