Our girl is like a little sponge at the moment. She repeats everything. I ask her father for something in Irish so that she won’t understand and she says it back to us.
When we were in the park yesterday some harrassed Italian parent said “Chiara, vieni quando ti chiamo” and our girl said “Chiara, vieni quando ti chiamo”.
While we were off living it up in Paris over the weekend, the Princess spent
time with our Polish babysitter; this morning she spent our trip to the creche
singing Frère Jacques in Polish (well, so her father who knows everything
assured me). As Mr. Waffle pointed out, there is only one problem with all this accomplishment, no matter what language she is speaking, she always sounds like a little francophone, you should hear her”r” people.And on a completely separate note, she saw her father in a bicycle helmet for the first time this evening, clapped her little hands together and said delightedly “regarde Maman, Papa se déguise en clown”. Her Papa was less delighted.
And finally, please inspect hilarious post on the challenges of living with a toddler.

And I can teach Princess ‘One Man Went To Mow’ in Swahili if she fancies it?
Brilliant – Operation No Pants. So, it’s true – they DO have a secret language!
Bobble, excellent suggestion. Yes, they all have nicer templates but the company isn’t as pleasant.
Norah, yes please. My aim is to become completely unbearable before she turns 3.
Pog, yes, it was good, wasn’t it?
Hey, my girl’s middle name is Chiara!
No Bobble, we’d miss you terribly.
And what a pretty name it is too BHM.
