The Most Important Word In English = Cookie

Clémentine’s first word was “ah-toe!” which meant gateau i.e. anything that is really yummy, from a piece of chocolate to a dust bunny found under the couch.

I was a little concerned when her talking slowed down for a couple of months after we moved back to Canada. However, now it is picking up steam again, but in both French and English this time around.

And what do you think one of the first words she mastered in English was?

“Cookie” bien sûr.

For Clem, this means for those people who speak English, “I want something really delicious to eat. Et tout de suite!”

As you can see above, a girl sometimes needs to get quite strident about her gateau / cookie demands.
