Le compte est bon

May 19th, 2013

Notre fille a une manière étrange de compter : “Un – quatre – sept” Mais l’autre jour j’ai constaté que cela n’empêche pas un compte juste : Un couple avec deux grands chiens se promenait dans notre rue. Notre fille, les voyant de la fenêtre, a commencé à compter les chiens : “Un, quatre – […]

Ma maison

May 17th, 2013

Pendant le long week-end, on est allés voir des amis en Allemagne. Le deuxième jour, nous sommes rentrés d’une sortie et avons garé la voiture devant leur maison. Ce qui nous a valu ce commentaire de notre fille : “C’est pas ma maison. C’est toujours la même maison.”

Settle down for Carolus et Rolf le Terribleand listen to the “echo”! Story from: Les plus belles histoires du soir – éditions Fleurus […]
