Bilingual Playtime

Languages ricochet like ping-pong balls during playtime

For my two children aged 4 and 21-months, playtime is an integral part of their daily routine. While I’ve noticed a pattern emerging in their play activities (certain toys are favored day after day while others gather dusk in the corner), I can never wager a bet as to which language they’ll slip into. Some days, Anna is Cinderella and Oliver is Gus Gus (the fat mouse) while other days she’s Sněhurka (Snow White), and he’s Šmudla (Doopy).
