Max will not let the fact that he is the only non-German speaking child in his kindergarten hold him back No, no he would figure a way around the language barrier. When Paul dropped Max off at kindergarten yesterday, Max hopped into the classroom, and immediately transformed into a little amphibian. "Rib-bit, rib-bit!" ia apparently an internationally recognized greeting amongst children ages three to six. Followed by a few more croaks and zaps of the tongue, Max was soon the center of attention, provoking a few more amphibious lurkers to come out of hiding, as well making other giggle. Apparently our little comedian has built a following at his kindergarten, because today when he arrived at school, his little fans swarmed him anxious to hear his newest animal impersonation.
It is amazing to think that I was ever worried about my child being intimidated by the language. He is truly his father's child and would be able to make friends with a lamp post.
