My 12 year old daughter, Allegra, and my five year old son, Gabriel were playfully wrestling on the floor. Allegra finally pinned Gabe and amidst all the giggles she said to him, "Say, 'Merci Beaucoup Mon Cheri' and I'll let you up." Gabe giggled and refused, knowing it would prolong their fun. She kept him pinned on the ground and issued her ultimatum again and again until finally Gabe, who was laughing so hard he could barely speak said, "Fine........Merci GO-POO!"
I'm thinking we need just a little bit more work on our Foreign Language Skills.
