Country (residing now): U.S.
Country (originally from): U.S.
Children, Ages: One boy, age 3

Current Challenge in Your Bilingual Journey: Biggest challenge is that I'm a non-native speaker of French and struggle to be correct and consistent in using French with my son.
Something Funny or Interesting About You: When I was 5 years old I decided to try to come up with a cure for cancer. I mixed tooth paste, flour and pickle juice together and stored it under my bed. My plan was to mail it to someone important but forgot about it until my mother discovered it some weeks later.
Favorite Quote: It's better to aim for the stars and hit a lamp post than aim for a lamp post and land in the gutter.

Mayken: My 7-year-old, her ML dad and a ml family are going to the Christmas market at a ml school today - and I can't go with them! (Hope that ML dad's presence doesn't stop the kids from speaking ml together.) Dec 2, 2017 22:12:04 GMT 9 *
Amy: I'm sure the language balance is heavily in favour of the ml. :) Don't you worry Mayken. ;) And it's also good that your daughter sees that the ml exists beyond the Mummy sphere. ;) It will give more weight to the ml to hear from another sphere. ;) Dec 2, 2017 22:51:42 GMT 9 *
Mayken: In the end, it was my daughter with ML dad and the other girl with ML mom (but who's fluent in ml). The other girl got tired of ml after a while but my girl chatted with people in ml and bought ml books and a snack, all in ml! Dec 5, 2017 0:29:57 GMT 9
Amy: Not so bad after all then, Mayken ;) Dec 5, 2017 6:27:24 GMT 9
Mayken: Not bad at all, I just regret I wasn't there with them. Dec 6, 2017 6:11:36 GMT 9
Amy: As the French have it Mayken: "ce n'est que partie remise!" ;) Dec 6, 2017 18:47:06 GMT 9 *
Mayken: My daughter wrote her letter to Santa in the ml this weekend, and we'll send it to Santa's address in the ml country, that way she'll get an ml letter back from him! Last item on her wishlist reads "The second Harry Potter book, and more books." :) Dec 11, 2017 23:59:38 GMT 9
Adam Beck: More books is always good! :D Dec 12, 2017 8:15:58 GMT 9
