From the Mouths of (Bilingual) Babes

Just sharing this very hilarious snippet of dinner table conversation from our Kinky Gazpacho household.

Older son: Mom, I finished my Harry Potter book.

Me: That's great.

Older son: I think that's the longest book I've ever read.

Me: Fantastic. Good for you.

Younger son (who by the way thinks his older brother is God): Esai read Harry Potter! Yeah Esai!

El Esposo ( said with fake confusion to younger son, to get him to repeat what he said in Spanish): Que?

Younger son to Papa: Esai ha leido Pelo Potter!

The End


Happy Monday. Make it a great week.

(p.s. for the non-Spanish speakers out there, pelo means hair in Spanish. Now do you get it?)

My daughter said today, "Papí por qué estás bringando las tortillas". Bringando!!!! For some reason she can´t use present progressive in spanish. It always has to be in spanglish.su
