Random Short Story : Ordinary Day in the Life of a Bilingual Family

(After bath time…)

Mama says to baby: “Hummm…Tu sens bon !“and tells hubby: “Can you say “Tu sens bon.“?

Hubby says: “Tu-sens-bon. What does that mean?

Mama answers: “You smell good

Hubby says to baby: “Tu-sens-bon.” and out of the blue added “Je“, “how do you say want?

Mama replies: “veux

Hubby: “Je-veux-manger-toi. Hahaha” ! (for the non-French speakers:” I want to eat you!”)


I thought it was adorable and I was glad he made the effort to speak French with the baby !
