Latest Nestorisms (mostly from the back bicycle seat)

{we made a mistake of telling the kids three months too early that we will probably visit the Playmobil park in Germany during the summer holidays}

Nestor: “Mama, Playmobil is the best thing ever. Playmobil and Riley (Nestor’s best friend).

I: “Playmobil and Riley? Nice.”

Nestor: “Mama, Riley is 4 and I am only 3. Do you think that 3 is good enough? I think that 3 is good enough.

I {while trying not to fall off the bicycle laughing}: “Yes, Nestor, I think that 3 is enough.”

{pause}

Nestor: “Mama, I am SO old”.

{after dinner conversation}

Nestor: “Mama, Daddy, do you know what my plan now is?

Mark and I: “No, what is your plan?”

Nestor: “My plan is to talk to my sister. THAT is my plan.”

***

Nestor: “Mama, ik vind je ZO lief!” {I think that you are so sweet}

Mama: {instant melting}

 

Note: I write what Nestor says  in English, for the most part. The language that he mostly uses at the moment is Dutch though. The conversation about his plans to talk to his sister was in English, with a fake British accent, no idea where that came from. I also write my answers in English, while in reality I only speak Serbian to him.
