Hi! I’m happy to have more time with my 4-year-old daughter lately...on early maternity leave and she’s on school holidays from now to the end of the month. What kind of things have you done during holidays where you don’t travel for exposure?
We have Saturday-Tuesday all day together for two weeks, and from 4pm every day. One easy thing is having more time and patience to get the ml homework routine in!

It's brilliant that your bilingual journey is going so well as it sets the bilingual path for your forthcoming little bundle of joy.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe you have a garden and live in/close to nature, so I would suggest outdoor activities such as gardening or nature observation. At The Multilingual Home, Adrienne (a multilingual mum) is doing insect observation: themultilingualhome.com/spring-mini-unit-ants
With the nice weather slowly coming in (though still very chilly), it's an opportunity to take your lil one out to make the most of it to plant strawberries or herbs (sorry, I'm rubbish at gardening so I'll let you pick what's adequate for the season) and observe ladybirds or why not birds...
Najwa: My eldest sings and verbalizes his figures/cars stories in an invented language that has English sounds and Italian accent. Is it his way to disconnect from his multilingual world?

Adam Beck: Najwa, it's hard to respond to your question without knowing the full details of the situation. I suggest starting a thread at a suitable board and offering as much information about these circumstances as you can.

Adam Beck: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all! And let us hope that 2021 is a much better year for the whole world!

Marisa: Merry Christmas to you, Adam, and to everyone! I also hope 2021 is better than this year we're about to end. It shouldn't be too difficult, right?
