When I dropped Madeline off at school this morning, her teacher asks, "Is your family part Spanish?" Me: "Um, no...why?"
Teacher: "The other day she was saying, "ayúdame, por favor"
Me: "She watches alot of Dora." (face turns red)
Teacher: (laughs) "Oh, ok! We read Dora books in class but that has never come up."
Me: "Oh. So what does that mean?"
Teacher: "It means help me, please. She was trying to put on her backpack."
Lesson learned over the past two days: This child is a serious sponge. Must start majorly sensoring myself before it gets us both in trouble, starting with the words "sucks" and "friggin'".
