J loves guessing what the spanish word might be for words she hasn’t learned yet.  She gets excited when she is correct (for example, plant is planta), so she’s fearless about adding an a or o to the end of any noun or adjective. It’s great – except yesterday I thought is was cursing at the dentist’s office.  It turns out she was just pointing out which things in the aquarium display were real and which were fake. There were a lot of fake fish, so she was running around pointing and yelling “Faka, faka, faka, faka, faka, faka, faka”.

I didn’t figure it out until she pointed at the starfish and shells and said “real” with a good accent!
