Hi, I'm Giulia. I'm Italian and have been living in the UK for 7 years. I have a 3 months old baby, Dante.
We've decided to go for the OPOL approach: I speak to the baby in Italian, my husband in English. My husband speaks only a bit of Italian, so we tend to speak to each other only in English...
If I speak to the baby in Italian it would be an opportunity for my husband to pick up more words as well. I'd like to speak to my husband in Italian but it's just so hard at times when you have to translate when you're tired!
Mayken: My girl and I are going to see her ml grandma in our ml country for the Easter weekend. (And buy more books!)

Adam Beck: Mayken, I hope you two have a fun, book-happy weekend!

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 ;))
