Habla Espanol?

PD1 is starting to learn some Spanish. I looked into a bunch of curriculums, but it was kind of like when you research vacuums on e-pinions, there was always something wrong with each of them. So one day I just took a shot in the dark and started practicing Spanish numbers with her in the car and for some reason she really likes it.

So the other day she wanted me to say how old everyone is in Spanish. She is seis, sister is tres, I am treinta cuatro. When we got to Aunt Katie, I thought maybe she could figure it out for herself. She thought for a minute and said, “veinte ONE!” I burst into laughter and then so did she. Now she keeps coming up to me and saying “remember when I said veinte one instead of veinte uno?” Good times.

Then I overheard her trying to teach PD2 to count in Spanish while PD2 was a captive audience on the potty. She said, “say uno, dos, tres.” PD2 says “uno dos SPACE.” Hilarity ensues.

We are going to learn food and colors next. Here are some cute books I am going to try.
