Peanut Butter Dilemma

So my host kids really like peanut butter. I’ve stockpiled jars of JIF over here. This afternoon, I felt like having a pb&j and when the 6 y.o. saw the jar, she got super excited. She kept saying, yes, yes, I want that on my toast. Is it selfish of me to not give her any? I mean, I wasn’t offering it. It’s not like I come across JIF everyday over here people! 

Rain comes from the sea…

According to Calliane, the rain comes from the sea. And a king controls the water. And when he isn’t happy, he tells the water to go to the clouds and for the rain to fall. Apparently. Seems about right?

- Tu sais pourquoi il y a les trous dans la lune?
- Non, il n’y a pas de trous dans la lune…
- Si si! C’est parce qu’il y avait un météore qui a explosé.

- Tu dessines hyper bien. Tu dessines mieux que moi.
- Oui c’est parce que je suis plus vielle que toi.
- Non, c’est pas ça.
- Ah bon?
- C’est parce que les Américains et les gauchers dessinent mieux que les français.

*-You draw really well. You draw better than I do.
-Yeah because I’m older than you are.
-No, it’s not that.
-Really?
-It’s because Americans and left handed people draw better than the french.*

Calliane 

- C’est pas grave!
- Rien n’est grave pour toi.
- Ouais, c’est vrai. Rien n’est grave, sauf mourir.

*- It doesn’t matter!
- Nothing matters to you.
- Yeah, that’s true. Nothing is serious, except dying.*
