My son is quite competitive. For example, he eats his food very fast all of a sudden if we tell him "see your baby brother is almost finished when your bowl is full". So, me and my husband sometimes tell him, I know more words in Mongolian than you do. Then he says, "Nooooo, I know everything in Mongolian" then we ask him words, sentences in ml. When I get bored and stop he says "Mooore, mooore!"
That's SO funny, Undraa!! And very smart too! My daughter isn't THAT competitive, but I do use a similar trick, like pretending her brother is playing along and telling me something -that's wrong- when I want her to participate. More often than not, she can't pass up the chance to say it right.
On the train to ml country, my daughter and I came up with a spontaneous word game: She'd make up nonsense forest names and I'd say a real word of a place that would have those things, sometimes also funny. Examples: car forest - parking lot hamburger forest - McDonalds lighthouse forest - dangerous coastline book forest - library

Mayken: Adam Beck, thanks for that very interesting and timely post - it justifies the large order for ml books and DVDs I'm about to place in view of my daughters upcoming birthday!

Mayken: It's our last night in Canada. We've said goodbye to our English-speaking and bilingual English/French friends but we have lots of memories and souvenirs. Let's see how I can keep up the momentum back home.
