Okay, so The Mister wasn’t the least bit interested in my blog. He came in and glanced at it, after I begged him and nagged him for a while, and then went back to the t.v. He told me a couple of weeks ago he would help me. Liar. Maybe I should start subtracting from his favors tally…. But, I guess to motivate him w/favors, I have to actually pay up. At least once.
Before he blew off my blog, we went to dinner w/the in-laws. We went to Aves’ all time favorite restaurant. We went to see her “Amigos,” which means we went to the Mexican restaurant around the corner… The child will eat nothing (apart from junk or cheese,) but will happily tear up some Mexican food. So, we oblige her when she wants to go. She gets so excited and when we pull up she runs in the door and yells “HEY, AMIGOS!!!” The waiters all wave and smile and come high-five her. She is their little “Amiga.”
Throughout the meal they all come over and talk w/her and she woos them with her spanglish. The Mister loves to joke about her love for dark featured men and a spanish accent. He says she gets it from me… But, it’s not just when visiting her amigos at the restaurant, she uses Spanish all the time.
The child truly speaks spanglish. It’s just as common to hear something in Spanish coming out of her mouth as it is English. The other night about 3 AM, she woke up and starting yelling “Ayudame! Ayudame!” (“Help me! Help me!”) Pretty serious about her Spanish when she wakes up in the middle of the night yelling for us in it… Good thing we’ve watched enough Diego to know what that means… I guess having Noggin on all day long is educational, afterall!
