This morning, we stopped in at the Saco Sidewalk Arts Festival. It was rather hot and and Exile #3 was a bit sore from her exertions yesterday, so we did not stay long and the kids were happy to accept a sno-cone from the stall of one of the local churches.
Later, Exile #2, E5N1 and I were walking near our house when Exile #2 related that Exile #4 had "taken a movie here because ants were making a colony on the pavement".
E5N1 immediately complained about her choice of words. Thanks perhaps in part to this morning's reminder, I corrected her - "sidewalk" not "pavement".
"That's not what I meant!" corrected E5N1, "She meant 'video' not 'movie'!"
Life with multicultural children is a minefield.
