Darby is well into the “mine” stage of being a two-year-old at the moment. It doesn’t matter what it is, he claims ownership.
So when we were at our friend’s place today, and Darby was playing with his near-three-year-old friend who happens to speak German and English, he heard the word “mein” and he wanted a piece of the action.
Ella was saying “my room” in German.
Just imagine two two-year-olds yelling at each other “mein zimmer” and only one of them actually understanding what it meant.
Once my friend explained what her daughter was saying, I was just in stitches. I wish I’d had my phone so I could get a video. It was just too much.
I don’t think I’ll be teaching Darby German any time soon. Too many “meins”.
