Veda L: A happy belated new year to all keepers! Any quick tips on how to edit profile (kids’ ages etc)? I’ve fumbled about with no luck. Thanks! Jan 9, 2019 23:58:17 GMT 9 *
Mayken: Veda, when you go to your "Profile", there's a button at the top right that says "Edit Profile". Then click on the "Personal" tab (and other tabs) to edit the information. Hope that helps! Jan 10, 2019 0:14:02 GMT 9 *

Adam Beck: Here's a lively list of 20 bloggers raising bilingual/multilingual children! (Recognize anyone?) ;) buff.ly/2QT0eHL Jan 31, 2019 9:01:41 GMT 9 *
Mayken: Hey , how come your photo on that list is bigger than everyone else's? ;) Jan 31, 2019 23:59:17 GMT 9 *
Adam Beck: Mayken, I don't know, but I wish I could say it's because I'm taller! My son (almost 12) is now nearly as tall as I am. Just yesterday I told him that I have to start growing again! :P Feb 1, 2019 10:12:14 GMT 9

Mayken: My friend S asked her bilingual 2.5-year-old daughter: What language do mommy & daddy speak? D: English! S: What language does Grandma speak? D: French! S: What language do the cats speak? D (*thinks, then answers*): Meow! Feb 7, 2019 0:08:00 GMT 9
Amy: Bless!! how cute is that!!! Reminds me of a similar thing that happened with my youngest when she was 18 months: she said the sound right for every animal but the cow. She kept answering "Lola" because of a famous Spanish nursery rhyme about a cow! :D Feb 7, 2019 0:40:09 GMT 9 *

Alba: My son caught us by surprise when we said thank you (in English) to a waiter in a Mexican restaurant, and he said "gracias" (thank you) to him too in Spanish, also signing it! He was having a blast and there was some Spanish music in the background. :) Feb 10, 2019 18:48:58 GMT 9 *
