Speaking in French

Don't get me wrong, in my brain I'm speaking in English. I DO NOT parlez-vous French. (I just now had to search online how to spell that!) That is how little of French I know. But apparently, when I am talking to my children, what I think I am saying in English is coming out in French, because they often seem to not understand me. Today, while grocery shopping, Gman kept screaming to hear his voice echo thru the rafters. I said "Stop it" and Princess immediately turns to Gman and translates: "Stop it means keep doing that."

You should know that the kids speak Spanish, you have to talk to them in Spanish. Have you learned nothing from Dora?

hmmmmm. I typed "stop it" into babelfish and definitely did not get "keep doing that" ;)
