Do you know that show Say Yes to the Dress? They always ask the question, “Are you saying ‘Yes’ to the dress,” knowing full well that the bride-to-be is going to say, “Yes.” Asking my boys, “Are you finished,” is kind of like that–but about school! They love being able to tell me they are done with school for the day, so I always like to ask, “Are you finished?,” and I get a resounding, “Yes!” back. Tell me… what do your kids want to do FIRST when they finish their school work?
Nolan is the most adorable guy. He will yell out super detailed compliments when we’re leaving a restaurant, which is funny cause he’s so quiet. Like, he’ll say to the hostess at the Original Pancake House on our way out, “Thank you! You made the best pancakes with strawberries on top!” I just love how he appreciates things, down to the very last detail. (And how he tells the hostess.) Use, “You always do such a good job,” the next time you notice a job well done with your kids, friends, or… local hostess! 😉
Asking you kids, “Which book do you want to read,” can be quite the dilemma! I don’t know about you, but my boys love books, so picking out just one can be a hard decision. We are reading a lot of classic novels right now. With Halloween creeping up on us, I grabbed a spooky book in German to read to them as well! What’s your family favorite book to read together?
After putting the baby down for a nap, do you keep your house loud or do you have everyone quiet down? With our first two, we could be as loud as we wanted. But with this baby, he is always waking up a bit early, so I find myself saying, “Will you please whisper?” to my older kids as we get closer to the end of his nap time–just in case he can nap a little longer.
Darian loves to run up to me and say in a foreign language, “I need to use the computer,” and even though it isn’t always a need (cough cough computer games), I usually let him because (1) he asked in a foreign language and (2) he’s extremely strategic and only asks if his chores and school work are done. Like, how can I say no when he’s so on top of things?
When Darian was a baby, he loved to eat tomatoes like apples! Do you have a kid who used to do that? Or maybe they still do! Kids’ taste buds are a funny thing. Well, I hope that if you planted tomatoes this year, you can use this phrase, “The tomatoes are growing,” as you look out over your garden!
What’s your child’s favorite tool to dig in the sand? My older boys are past settling for sticks and plastic shovels. They want the real deal to make some serious creations or holes. The baby is just happy to be along for the ride and will use whatever they hand him. 😂 You can use today’s phrase, “Use your shovel to dig in the sand,” the next time you are at the beach!
It’s pet week!! That’s right! We get to say phrases that are most often used with pets. “What kind of pet do you have?” is the perfect ice breaker when visiting new friends. We don’t have a pet right now, but my kids would LOVE a cat or a dog that Hector would really not like to have.
Because most people have dogs or cats, this week’s phrases will be about them. If you are fun family with chickens, lizards, hamsters, or other animals, check out the $35 phrasebook to use those animals in phrases in the language of your choice!
