Remember how regimented Declan’s bedtime routine is? A year and a half later, it is still almost EXACTLY THE SAME. Except he got all his numbers down up till about 50 or so, and we got bored. Not with everything else in this monotonous, scripted, playacting we do every night, mind you!!! Just the numbers part.
So we moved on to colors.
And now we do either German or Spanish colors every night.
Red is rojo. Blue azul. Green verde.
Red is rot. Blue blau. Green gruen.
Guess what black is in German? Schwarz.
It’s very hard to settle down a 5.5 year old boy every night when we get to “black” in German.
