I lay in bed or drive and think of fabulous stuff to say and even send myself little email tidbits - can I remember anything I wanted to say? No.
So many differences but so many cool things as well when you are in a different country it's hard to remember they are different after they happen.
Awwww - I do think my favourite thing I have noticed is this.
When someone (usually a parent) asks a child something it is always a form of a question but really shouldn't be.
Parent: You want to eat your brussels sprouts...
Child : they are gross - no
Parent: that wasn't a question or a request
Me: umm yes it was
Now that I have pointed this out to my Prince Charming and dwarfs they see it EVERYWHERE! It's becoming funny.
My other favourite example:
Parent: Do you want to go to bed now?
Parent: well its time for bed
Me: haha you asked them silly - don't ask. TELL
Oh the fun of picking up small things like this and even better when they say it and realise they asked a "question" again and fix it and then laugh!
Life can be funny.
Can I have another cup of coffee?
