First

As we anticipated Caroline would be the first to pick up an English accent. In the past couple of days her language is peppered with a British flare. We first noticed it when she was talking about the shapes she is learning in school – cylinder. She now says cylinda – turning the e into a and dropping the r. This change is carrying into water, there and firefighter.

Both girls like to use the British version of words when possible – rubbish bin for trash can, knickers for panties and trousers for pants. This certainly comes from school and hearing different references all day.
