MLF3's English is getting better everyday. I just can't comprehend this 4 year old doing so well in French, German, Swiss German AND English.
Tonight we were reading nursery rhymes and Humpty Dumpty came up. She may know four languages but she did not know Humpty Dumpty was an egg. It was like a light was switched when I explained about eggs and falling off a wall and why Humpty Dumpty did not have a happy ending.
I reasoned this with if you dropped an egg, could you put it back together?
She nodded. "With Scotch."
Then she wanted a cuddle and I told her I could hear her heart. She was really excited about this and wanted to hear mine. Then she got sad when she realized she couldn't hear her own.
I'll give her full points for trying though. Pulling your head down whilst pushing your chest up is no mean feat.
Then I showed her her pulse in her wrist. The amazement on her face was priceless.
But now she thinks her heart is in her wrist. And it's really hard to backtrack when there's more than one language involved.
She may know four languages. But she thinks her heart is in her wrist.
