I want PK to be fluent in French (then I'll finally have someone with whom I can practice!), so I've bought her a ton of French board books. One of the books I read to her often is called "Les chiffres avec les animaux de la ferme", by Melanie Watt (see attached pic). The book lists off x farm animals of a particular type for each number up to 12, along with the sounds they make. For example, "Huit canards. Coin, coin." It's cute because the sounds the animals make are French-sounding. Isn't it funny how a duck sounds different in English and French? ;-)
PK just kept laughing harder and harder as I read her this book. To her, each animal sound was absolutely hillarious! I read her the book again a couple of hours later, and she found it just as funny! I've read this book to her several times before over the past couple of months, but this is the first time that she has ever cracked up over it. Maybe today she decided in her little mind that French animals sound funnier. I wonder if she'll still find it funny tomorrow?
PK Land is a blog about my experiences as a parent. It is a follow-up to my pregnancy blog, PK on the Way, which I wrote to document my pregnancy in the hopes of someday sharing it with my daughter. PK is short for "Potential Kid", which the hubby and I used to refer to the child that we might have in the future. We also referred to our unborn child as PK, as we didn't quite have a name picked out for her until she was born. Even though "PK" has an actual name (and her initials are not P.K.), I thought I'd keep up the anonymity (and save her future embarrassment) by continuing to use PK in this blog.
