Not having had any children, and not having lived in South America since I was 15, I had never had an occasion to hear this phrase spoken in Spanish, so thanks to you and to all who shared their ideas with me.

Fuente


Explanation:
Se me rompió la bolsa (de agua) o rompí (la bolsa) de agua is too literal. The correct way would be:
- Se me rompió la fuente (de agua)
- Rompí la fuente (de agua)
