I speak French, my DH speaks French & Arabic. Living in UK we have added English to our repertoire. The dcs speak a little bit of french , are learning arabic but they mainly are english speaking.

The other day DD(10yo) came and ask me if I thought grandma still had the DVD of "Pierre Casserole" After about 5 minutes trying to think about what she might be refering to, I had to ask.

Try to guess what DVD she was talking about.

that's fab!

my friend little boys speaks french/english and lives down south.

When he was two he had a total paddy because when I came down to visit I warned him to look out for the glass on the floor.

he then spent ten minutes wailing that he wanted an icecream grin

Dd yesterday (Italian/English) proudly told Daddy she'd eaten the apricots "with their backs" (Italian schiena= back) She was talking about the skins. grin

A bit TMI perhaps, but...

Hmm, my not quite two-year-old French/English-speaking DS currently confuses "cake" and "caca" (poo!) which my 5-year-old finds hilarious (I mean, he comes to tell me he has cake in his nappy!)
