My little daughter, Pinky I call her, is one year and five months now, noted to understand mother tongue and minority language both. Just yesterday, she was having her little comb in her hand, and I asked her to comb her hair, of course in the minority language, which is English. She started combing her hair. She of course cannot use the comb properly yet. A few minutes later, her six year old sister came and asked in mother tongue to comb sister's hair, which Pinky did. She follows my simple commands in minority language, and other commands from others in mother tongue. When she does not want her maids to be around her she says "go". I of course do not hear much of English words from her yet.
Mayken: My girl and I are going to see her ml grandma in our ml country for the Easter weekend. (And buy more books!)

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!

Amy: Got fleeting impression during Skype call with daughter on holiday at grandparents' in ml1 country, that her ml1 pronunciation has improved! She even seemed more confident speaking in ml2!

Mayken: During the traditional German Easter fire, my daughter met her friend from her school day in the ml school! So many birds with one stone! (Sorry for the birds ;))
