It’s National Love Your Pet Day today! While the focus of my account is on our journey as a multiracial and multilingual family, these two are still an important part of it.
P and B have been so patient and understanding with E and we are so fortunate to have them as part of our lives. They have been flexible and understanding throughout the many changes that have happened since E was born, and are quick to adjust to it (especially mealtime routines...haha). They have been an integral part of raising E to be a kind, caring, respectful, and responsible human.
Wouldn’t you know that they’re also along for the ride with learning new languages! P has definitely picked up some of the signs we use with E as well as key words in Spanish (again, mostly pertaining to mealtimes 😆). As for B, it’s hard to tell; although she does respond to her name and usually comes when called, how much she understands isn’t as clear by her reaction compared to P, though I’m sure she does understand!
Tell me about your pets and how they have made a difference in your lives! Have they adapted to new routines around your little ones? Do they understand more than one language?
