I looked through my notes from when my daughter was little and mixed a lot - so funny! I hardly found any instance where she adapted a word from one language to the other, though, except for this one:
At almost four years, we were going on holidays and she asked if one could go swim (in the sea) there, "se baigner" in our ML French, "baden" in our ml German: "se bader".
What I noted a lot in later stages was that she'd use French articles (le la les) in otherwise fully German sentences (der die das des dem den according to the declination). It's not hard to guess why.
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?
