Humuhumu and the bubble blizzard
Humuhumu blowing lots of tiny bubble with her Bubble Blizzard.

Do you know that feeling when a child is 7000x cooler than you ever will be? I had it when I fed Humuhumu a new dish and asked her how she liked it. She gave the subtlest shrug of one shoulder and said without missing a beat, “Comme ci, comme ca.” (So-so in French) Y’all. She's five years old. I can't even.

One must never underestimate the sharp-wittedness of a child. There's a reason why they can understand how to programme a video-recorder (sorry, I need to come up with a much more up-to-date item of technological gadgetry than this) when your average old fogey can't!

Agreed. Also, apparently she's getting quite a bit out of her French lessons at school!

I think she's fortunate. I didn't get any foreign language instruction until my first year at high school, and I think that's far too late for most people to cope with learning a new language comfortably. It certainly was for me.
