Conversation with Peanut.
Peanut: Mẹ Mẹ Mẹ, me want to watch Wild Kratts.
Me: Sorry, you cannot watch TV right now. Would you like to draw or write letters?
Peanut: Wild Kratts me want to watch.
Me: Would you like to draw or write letters?
Peanut: Nooo, Wild Kratts, my teacher Mrs. A said me watch Wild Kratts.
Me: When did Mrs. A say that?
Peanut: At school! (He was looking at me, quizzically.)
Me: Then tell me how did she say it?
Peanut: She said in Vietnamese, Mẹ!
Now it was me looking at him, incredulously!
