Amy: Cute code switching this morning when my 3 year old told me "I get my pótamo" (she meant her hippo soft toy). This mixing was music to my ears... It means she is truly growing trilingual. :) Apr 6, 2019 2:51:35 GMT 9 *
Adam Beck: Lovely, Amy! Good for you, and good for her! :) P.S. I like hippos. Apr 7, 2019 10:32:37 GMT 9
Alba: So funny, Amy! Great to hear :) I love the word Hypo, every child says it different! My son did something similar when he say "This tocotó", he calls horses "tocotó" based on the noise they made when trotting (tocotó, iiii (neigh)-ok, for a Spanish ear) :D Apr 8, 2019 6:52:09 GMT 9
Amy: Cheer and ! :). I love these "baby" words. They are so cute. I like the "This tocotó" another example of state of the art Spanglish ;) <3 Apr 9, 2019 4:54:05 GMT 9

Mayken: Got home from a short trip to Zürich - heard German, French & Italian on the train, and both German and French in the tram. And everyone speaks English too. It was nice to be able to choose which of my languages I wanted to speak! May 6, 2019 23:07:42 GMT 9
Amy: Such a lovely feeling, isn't it? :) I miss that! :) May 7, 2019 16:33:19 GMT 9
Mayken: It is, . I didn't realise how much I had missed it. May 7, 2019 23:10:43 GMT 9
Amy: Last year, a new colleague joined my team. She's trilingual in the same languages as me. It was like magic. We change languages and even code-switch several time a day. I had missed that so much!! My monolingual colleagues must think we're freaks! lol May 8, 2019 4:56:12 GMT 9
Amy: Unfortunately, she has resigned and is leaving shortly. :'( I was so proud to introduce her to my eldest, one day that I had brought her to show her round my office. And to introduce other bi/multilingual colleagues. Show how important languages are. May 8, 2019 4:58:26 GMT 9
Mayken: That must have been wonderful, ! I'm sorry she is leaving. I would love to find someone like that. We had an English intern last year who spoke German and French. We chatted a lot. May 8, 2019 6:06:01 GMT 9

Caro C.: Oh Amy I sort of feel related to what you are saying. Some months ago I made a friend from the US. She happens to be a neighbor with four kids. We’ve been sharing back and forth and I’d love my baby girl to eventually be able to share with her children May 13, 2019 12:55:09 GMT 9
Caro C.: Although maybe they will be a bit old for her, still we (I mean their mom = Sarah and me) both are very happy and grateful for each other as friends. May 13, 2019 12:57:05 GMT 9 *
Mayken: As of yesterday, I am aunt to a baby girl who lives in our ml country with 2 ml parents, and I'm already planning to get them a nice nursery rhymes CD for our first visit. ;) May 16, 2019 20:03:47 GMT 9 *
Adam Beck: Nice, Mayken! Have a happy visit! :) May 17, 2019 9:10:21 GMT 9
Caro C.: OMG I just came across this song and it filled my heart with joy and excitement...perfect for all of us who are parents: youtu.be/g1fcnhB8GOY May 19, 2019 14:01:55 GMT 9 *
Adam Beck: Caro, thanks for sharing that lovely song. Raffi was one of our very favorite musicians when my kids were small. We listened to him all the time. I highly recommend his albums as a source of very enjoyable and very effective English input. :) May 20, 2019 15:32:26 GMT 9
Mayken: My daughter is on a field trip this week and I feel like I've lost my main purpose ;) May 20, 2019 20:03:33 GMT 9 *
