What did you say?

My sons are setting the dinner table, telling jokes to each other in Latin. I am fairly sure I heard "pater" and "mater" in their somewhere.

My daughter is watching her favorite princess movie in Spanish and I see her little mouth singing along with the tune.

My youngest son is writing in Mandarin Chinese on the white erase easel in the kitchen.

My husband emails me something that looks like gibberish until I look closer. It's tech-ese.

My e-mail inbox has a message from a French client: "Ravi de parler en Francais avec vous!"

And I wonder why I have a hard time completing a sentence in English.
