Uno, dos, tres...

I must admit that I am a little less than thrilled with the liking Elizabeth has taken to soccer as in our household we prefer a sport where you are supposed to use your hands. We lay the blame at the animated feet of Dora, Boots, and Go Diego Go!

These shows are at least good for more than buying me the time to take a decent shower...while at the playground on Saturday and again today, Elizabeth has been doing some of her counting in Spanish. As I took 2 years of French in high school and 1 more year in college - and can only say "$hit in your face, you red neck" (thanks Auntie Patty!), the essential phrase, "gimme a beer" and some other quality words like "ham," "here," etc. Needless to say, not a whole lot stuck from those quality years of French when my brain was not at its best for accepting a foreign language...any who, I've is really amazing to hear our little amazing 2 year old saying a couple of numbers in Spanish - especially since no one in either of our families speak Spanish, she can only count to 12, and basically the only Spanish she is hearing is on Dora and Diego. Oh how we need to find a foreign language class for tots while her little brain is able to mop this up!!!
