Car____li_____tos
Third-second son of Carlitos
O…el nene de mami

Car____li_____tos
 “I want that,” he says to everything he sees

Car____li_____tos
 “Where is Ca?”
“I love you Ca”
Ca, short for Carlos	
O…el nene de mami

Varón, who cries when something goes wrong
Varón, who does not like dirt on himself
Varón, who strips down when at home

Car____li_____tos
Third-second son of Carlitos
O…el nene de mami

El nene de Ca
Talks a lot o hasta por los codos
Runs around the house playing with:
Self
Others and imaginary friends
Carlitos

Car____li_____tos
Third-second son of Carlitos
O…el nene de mami

Car____li_____tos
Varón
Nene de Ca
Strips down
Talks a lot

Runs around the house
Tireless
Energy runs through
Energetic is he
I sit and smile
Amaze

Carlitos
