We can’t blame her much as she spends the whole day in the childcare surrounded by English speaking kids and teachers.
Anyway we are trying our best to teach her Nepali at home. The other day she called me “Aama” (Nepali for mother. S’s teaching of course). It made me feel very happy. Normally she calls me Mama or Mummy. I know it is a bit weird but it feels very special when she speaks Nepali. I think I have this strong connection to Nepal that anything like this melts my heart.
Anyway, AS and Chhori were having a conversation in Nepal. So when AS finished a sentence, she said “Pani bhane water”.
It was so cute. Poor baby was trying to understand two languages and trying to make senses in her tiny brain.
All the parents out there who have kids speaking more than one language. Howe do you do it? Please share you tips and tricks. Looking forward to all those comments.
