…and other reasons I shouldn’t claim to speak Spanish.
Jene’ was babysitting the girls again (which means I wasn’t in charge). Jene’ asked them to sing Happy Birthday to record on her computer so she could add pictures of them to it and burn it all to a CD for their daddy.
She gets them all set and counts down, “three, two, one,” and Julia starts singing, “feliz cumpleanos a ti,” which I thought was aqui and I was thinking to myself that, “I didn’t know it was ‘Happy Birthday here’ in Spanish.”
For me it was funny she started out in Spanish anyway, but we finally got them to sing in English first, then Spanish… and it’s not “aqui,” it’s “a ti.”
I learn something new every day… but I really should stick with, “Lo siento, no habla Espanol.” (I’m sorry, I don’t speak Spanish).
