The funny things toddlers say... De la bouche des enfants...

So, Margaux's language has been picking up tremendously in the last few weeks, not only her vocabulary, but her elocution as well. Now that she really started she just keep yaking away just like her big sis. Anyway, on Tuesday, she told us very seriously (she does that very expressive face and opens her eyes really wide) "I scared of monsters". So, we ask her what kind of monsters, she says "blue monsters". Hmm, okay, where did that come from? She did the same yesterday, except this time they were green monsters. Finally, yesterday we were back to blue monsters.

Also, I've noticed she favors playing with boys over girls. When I asked who she played with at school, she always brings up the same three names: Coleman (her partner in crime, they always get in trouble together), Josh, Quentin. I think girls are too well-behaved for her, she likes the more rambunctious kids.

I'm very glad the girls are back in school this week, and back on a schedule. I could tell they were getting bored at home. 2 weeks is too long a break.

Le langage de Margaux s'es beaucoup ameliore les quelques dernieres semaine, pas seulement son vocabulaire, mais aussin son elocution. Elle nous as dit tres serieusement (elle ouvre les yeux tres grand et a cet air tres grave) en anglais "Moi peur des monstres". On lui a demande de quels monstres, elles nous a repondu des monstres bleus. Nous ne savons pas d'ou ca vient. Avant-hier, elle avait peur des monstres verts, et hier c'etait de nouveau les bleus.

J'ai aussi remarque qu'elle prefere jouer avec les garsons plutot que les filles. Quand je lui demande avec qui elle a joue dans la journee, elle me donne toujours les memes noms: Coleman, Josh et Quentin. Je crois que les filles ne font pas assez de betises pour elle.

Je suis contente que les filles soient retournees a l'ecole cette semaine. Cette pause de 2 semaines etait trop longue et elles commencaient a s'ennuyer.
