Need help with the translation of this short dialogue, please


Recommended Posts

Would help to know relationships too but implication is they're all members of same family, appears to be child and mother. Going with that as an assumption:


What about dad?

Your dad is...

You want to know where is he/what's he at? [人 can be used as a shorthand question to query status/whereabouts of someone]

He's building a/fixing the pigsty.

Well then I'll wait a couple of days before I come back to get it [literally just come back after two days but linking it to the news that dad is busy]


ETA Just edited as saw I'd missed line three is from speaker of lines 2 and 4
