I Think I Speak English

Last night, Seth and I were having a conversation about something that a kid in his class did that he didn't appreciate. I was trying to help him come up with a solution.

Me - "Why don't you tell him that you don't appreciate it when he does that and if he does it again you will tell the teacher?"

Seth - "I told him but I don't think he understands me. (Whispers) He only speaks English."

Me - "WE speak English."

Seth - "Yeah. But he ONLY speaks English."

Me - "But, we're speaking English RIGHT NOW."

Toby - "I know how to say something in English! 'I am English'."

Me - *blink, blink*


  1. That's so cute! Mikayla thinks she's Polish. In fact, my mother commented over the summer that she has a Polish accent. I have been listening to her more closely and she really does have one for certain words. Even when she says her brother's name she says it with a Polish/German accent that makes it sound more like "Niklas". In a few years, she will have no accent and very little memory of her time in Warsaw.

  2. that cracks me up! I need to borrow that kid for some blogging material!!!!

  3. I just stumbled across your blog for the first time...and this left me laughing out loud! Very funny stuff!
