Me: So Daddy and I will be home all day today to mind you.
Her: No work?
Me: In fact, today is a holiday, it’s July 21, Belgian National Day.Â Nobody has to go to work.
Her: Not you, not Daddy, not Aunty Pub Exec…
Me: Actually, Aunty Pub Exec probably does have to go to work, it’s only a holiday in Belgium not in England.
Her: And Aunty Pub Exec is English.
Me: No she’s Irish.
Her: But she speaks English.
Me: But we speak English and we’re Irish.
Her: Except Daddy, he’s French, he speaks French.
Me: Well, he speaks English to me.
Her: Really?Â I didn’t notice that.
