The girls are getting good enough at English, and they are so ridiculously attentive, that Colleen and I found we can no longer speak freely and assume we will not be understood. So we resort to spelling key words or parts of key words when we want to discuss something without the girls understanding.
Fast forward to this morning at the breakfast table. Colleen asked Marin what she wants for breakfast. Marin responds with "peanut butter, toast, mqrxy".
I look at Colleen like 'what is she saying?'. And Colleen explains to me that is Marin's new gig. She just spits out letters to pretend she is spelling because she hears us do that and Marin does not want Emmy to know what she is saying.
