Below you will read excerpts on conversations that I’ve had with my 5 year old that I wrote down so I wouldn’t forget. They were both highlights of my day!
Me: (In Spanish) “Dale un abrazo a tu Papi y dile buenas noches que vamos a dormir” (Give your Daddy a hug & tell him good night, we’re going to bed)
–I’m looking at the TV while I’m telling him this then I turn around, and repeat myself.
Little one: “Mommy, I already did! You weren’t watching!”
Little one: “¿Quién es? (as I knocked on the door) ¡Mamá llegaste!
Me: “Si papi ¿listo para irnos a casa?”
Little one: “No, Mami no quiero”
Me: “¿Por que no?”
Little one: “Quiero ver televisión, quiero ver Dora”
Me: “Esta bien cuando termine Dora nos vamos”
Little one: “Gracias Mamá”
Little one: “Mamá, Dora terminó. Voy a buscar mis zapatos.”
Me: “Busca tu mochila también.”
Little one: “Ok, Mamá. Vamos para casa.”
It has been such a successful year for you and I'm sure there will be lots more milestones in 2014 – Well done Mama!! I was thinking of you last night when I was searching ebay for children's books – there are a number of lots of Spanish early readers at great prices.
