nevad trip #2

nevada trip #2

went to see my great grandsons
over from paris they’re being
raised bilingual laurent talks
to them in french cressida in
english but since the parents
speak french to each other the
kids are basically gallic I took
a batch of books with easy tales
“caps for sale” “millions of cats”
for more english exposure but
found trevor already glommed
onto a favorite new book dr seuss
he wanted “there’s a wocket in
my pocket” over and over a story
filled with made-up seussian words
zower geeling bofa nink zelf and a
vug under a rug words he’ll have
little use for still they’re in english
construction he’s nearing three
understands english well likes some
new words he’s learned: “mushy”
“squishy” “sticky” “goat” when I
say to him “if you’d answer in
english I could understand you” he
replies “je prefere parler francais!”
