Tierra = Mundo
My Dad used to say (when he was mad at me): "Hija, te crees que eres el ombligo del mundo". As a teenager I hated it, now I remember it fondly.
I suppose you'll be able to figure out what it means on your own. Do ask if you don't.
"When the first baby laughed for the first time, the laugh broke into a thousand pieces and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies."
from Peter Pan by J.M.Barrie
