She climbed with difficulty the 3 floors, her hands loaded with heavy bags. When she arrived, she took a respite and shouted, "Hello, have you been good children?" Dana appeared beside her. Yes, Mommy. I warmed up the food as you told me, we both did our homework, we went out a little in front of the block, and then we came upstairs. Did Mihai take his medication? Yes, Mommy, I gave him the big white ones 3 times and Phenobarbital 3 times 3 pills each. After that, he told me he was very tired and went to bed. He's been asleep for a few hours already.
