Notes on conversation

Oye, Kathy. Oye means "listen" and it is used to draw someone's attention. It is also used in a conversation to open a new subject.

Está con los abuelos, Literally, "She is with the grand-parents." When ownership or possession is clear, Spanish tends to use "the" rather than "his," "her," "your," and so on.
