It's not only the tips and the ideas I am thankful for but also the moral support and inspiration to go further. I love the idea to be strict and playful at the same time. Let's face it, raising children and working full time in a foreign country is already a handful, not to mention criticism and doubt that we receive from the others and from ourselves on the bumpy road to bilingualism. After reading your forum and posts I set my mind to it. Thanks to you!
Undraa, thank you! I really appreciate your warm words! It's this kind of positive feedback that encourages me to keep up my efforts. Maintaining a popular blog and forum--and managing everything else in my life--isn't easy, but the work feels very gratifying when I hear that it makes a difference in the lives of other families out in the world.
But now I have to run because my tired 12-year-old daughter has begun sobbing about not being able to have sushi for dinner tonight. (Really!)

Mayken: On the train from Paris to Cologne we sat next to another ml mother and daughter from our school! Only noticed when almost in Cologne. It's a small ML-ml world!
