Can I start off this blog by saying that I am completely stumped? I’ve been practicing Russian using a software program I purchased online. I’ve hire a tutor who will be coming by once a week to aid us in this. But for the life of me I cannot think of what phrases I want to learn to speak to the girls.
I feel like I’m standing too close to a chalkboard with all the answers written on it, and to see them I have to make myself take few steps back. I figuratively have my feet cemented to the floor.
I've tried to think of what I say to my own boys, and well, the only thing that comes to mind that I ask them often is: Are you happy? And if they aren’t we talk about it.
So I am throwing this question out there to the world. If you have (in real life or not) a child who doesn’t speak your language come and live with you, what three phrases would you learn (other than the ones above I’ve mentioned)?
