Last week Mr C, my four year old, both surprised me and made me laugh as he launched into a story in Dutch telling his dad about his day in school. His Dutch has always been much stronger than his English but I have noticed that speaking English is getting easier for him, especially after three intensive weeks in England over the summer. In any case, he said,
"Een meisje was vandaag in een....." ("Today one of the girls was in a ....") and then he leaned over to me and whispered in my ear,
"Mama, what is a wheelchair in Dutch?"
"Rolstoel!" I whispered back.
"Oh yeah, zij was in een rolstoel," he finished.
"Waarom?" asked his dad. ("Why?")
"Geen idee," said Mr C. ("No idea.")
