No, I'm from the United States. There's no way I could mix up "saw" and "sore". Well, if I was from Boston, maybe. But nope, I'm from upstate NY..........

Seesaw is one of my favourite words in English... and it's difficult to translate:you can say columpio (but then it would be the same as swing) or maybe balancín.

Really? Spanish doesn't have a name for a seesaw? Do they not have seesaws in Spanish playgrounds? Hmmm.....

Exactly that, Irmamar. You call it balancín then?

Pues no sé cómo se llama, creo que balancín (la imagen la busqué con la palabra "balancín"). Como no me ha gustado nunca mucho, no le he dado importancia. Me gustaban más el tobogán y los columpios.

Yo era una cobardica, casi todo me daba miedo.... sobre todo cuando eran mis hijos los que montaban...
