Well, that's a new one

Lily had a tantrum yesterday. Nothing unusual there. Except this one was in french. She didnt want to walk and wanted to go in the pram. "Je vais dans la poussette", she screamed as David strapped Jasper in. "Mes lunettes", she cried as she realized she had forgotten her sunglasses. And then she really lost it when she dropped her hat. "Mon chapeaaaauuuu", she howled as she threw herself to the ground. And through it all David and I looked at each other and laughed and said "bravo Lily!" It will only be a novelty once. I'm sure that's the last time she'll get a compliment for une colère, but you have to celebrate all the little achievements!

Hi Penny! Now that is COOL! Is she speaking in french often? CL

You know, CL, she is doing really well. She speaks quite a bit now when we are out and often at home playing with Jasper :)

Love your new blog layout! Looks great. That's funny about Lily, expressing oneself in French in a tantrum signifies real progress!

I think that is so awesome, Penny!

and I love those dual moments of parenthood, when you are frustrated at the actual event (ie tantrum) but on the other hand, so proud at the same time!
