Raquel: Happy Halloween, everyone!! Oct 31, 2018 18:06:11 GMT 9
Amy: Happy belated Halloween Raquel! ;) Nov 4, 2018 18:13:04 GMT 9
Amy: And to all other fellow zookeepers of course! ;) Nov 4, 2018 18:13:28 GMT 9
Wojtek: Yesterday my daughter used a Polish word in an English sentence. From time to time she does it (don't know if I should be happy about that), but anyway what was amusing about that, she said it with an English accent! :) Nov 5, 2018 18:23:45 GMT 9 *
Wojtek: I feel the English accent in our monolingual family has seemed to be something unreachable but in that mixed sentence, I heard the difference. It surprised me slightly. :) Nov 5, 2018 18:23:55 GMT 9 *
Amy: So cute Wojtek! And such a lovely piece of news! :) Nov 7, 2018 6:29:36 GMT 9
Adam Beck: Nice Wojtek! Give that little girl a big hug from Uncle Adam! :) Nov 7, 2018 10:16:33 GMT 9
Wojtek: I will :) Thanks! Nov 8, 2018 23:46:48 GMT 9

Mayken: My daughter is home sick (nothing serious), meaning a whole day of ml exposure! (Though she is missing her ml class at school.) Nov 9, 2018 20:49:20 GMT 9
Amy: Make the most of it Mayken! ;) (We bilingual parents really are freaks, rejoicing in having our kids sick at home! lol :P ;) ) Nov 10, 2018 5:23:00 GMT 9
Adam Beck: Yes, I freakishly even wrote a blog post about this: Here's the Bright Side to Bilingual Kids Getting Sick bilingualmonkeys.com/the-bright-side-to-bilingual-kids-getting-sick/ Nov 10, 2018 6:50:48 GMT 9

Amy: Beautiful pictures Adam! The serenity of the place transpired in every pic. Thank you for sharing them :) Nov 11, 2018 21:58:40 GMT 9
Mayken: , , she got a lot of ml exposure but there's only so many times I can watch a Bibi & Tina DVD. Glad she's back at school today. Nov 13, 2018 0:16:03 GMT 9
Mayken: My daughter's school had the annual lantern pageant yesterday. It always moves me to tears when I see the kids stand and belt out the songs in our ml. This year, the ml kids also recited a short poem on St Martin. Nov 25, 2018 3:34:49 GMT 9
