    I have just had one of those weird conversations with Jezzarette 2 just as she got home. J2 was extremely happy that she had got a big pat on the back from her German teacher for an essay she had written and I congratulated her as I know she has been working hard on her languages of late.

    I can muddle through most languages and can say I have a "Guide Book" vocabulary, however J2 said to me:

    J2 "Wo Mama ist?"
    Me "Elle est dans la chambre coucher"
    J2 "Est elle endormie"
    Me "Nein"
    J2 "Thanks"

    and she scampered off to wherever a young linguistic bear cub scampers off to.

    To disturb her mother, I presume!
