Thank You Friend
After we put Gioia down for the night, she often talks to herself as she goes to sleep. Normally she repeats words or phrases that she learned during the day over and over. Last night she fell asleep saying: "Xie xie peng you. Zuo mian bao le." Which means, thank you friend for making the bread.
You see, each day at Montessori, one child is the master bread maker. He or she puts on a special chef's hat and is in charge of making bread (rolls?) for the other kids. When the bread is done, they all sit down together and eat. Its so very socialist. Love it.
Thank you friend. For the bread.
