Poppette the Wordsmith

Poppette has recently created a new word.... 'Mapa'... (an amalgamation of the words Maman and Papa) which she uses when she is not sure which one of us will give her the answer or reaction she is looking for...

'Mapa'... She says whilst looking expectantly at the treat cupboard

'Mapa' ... She says whilst pointing towards the bed she wishes to bounce on

'Mapa' 'Mapa' 'Mapa'

Ingenious. She is simply too cute for words.

    Absolutely adorable!!

    1. Thanks Kate... it's a real treat to hear what comes out of toddler's mouths at this age isn't it :D

  2. Aaah that is so cute.. in our case our eldest just called everyone important "Mummy"... ha.

    I was wondering if you are hosting the next Bilingual Carnival? I have recently started blogging about our bilingual (failures) and want to start joining in....

    This would be my post

    Thank you!


    1. Hi Maggy

      Thanks for popping by my blog and leaving a comment, it's always nice to hear from people who are in the same boat :D

      I LOVE that your eldest clearly knew that it's mummy that makes the world go around!

      I'm afraid it isn't me who will be hosting the next Blogging on Bilingualism Carnival, it's Tamara over at Non-native Bilingualism (you can find her here - ). Tamara speaks German with her daughter, kaya, so i'm sure if you drop her a line, you guys will find plenty to talk about :)

      Good luck with your ongoing bilingual household. I have added your blog to my native blog roll.
