While Jake's at soccer practice, Isaac plays on the playground. Today there was a little girl from India playing with him and I hear him ask her if she speaks English. Well she asks (in English by the way) "What's English" So Isaac yells at me:
Mom What's English?

I answer, "It's the language we speak"
He asks, "What's language"
I answer, "It's the words we say"

so he asks the little girl If she uses English words. She answers yes. So they play a little bit. A bit later she in her mother speak to each other in their native tongue and then Isaac yells to me, "Hey mom, they speak Spanish too"

He makes me laugh.

Kids crack me. It's fun to see/hear their reasoning when they don't understand something.

oh - MC took the wind out of my Brown people comment!

Hey, do you know that your list of "people I don't know but stalk" is way longer than you list of "people I know and like" - ?

hehe
