When Guapa wants a cookie, she’s ready to use three languages to get her way.
So watch out.
We were recently visiting my parents (to Guapa, this is Nana and Papa), and Guapa and I were alone in the kitchen. Of course Nana has a cookie jar because that’s what good grandmas do, right?
So Guapa says to me, “I want gee-gee.” In her world, gee-gee is Guapa-Speak for Spanish galleta (English cookie or cracker, depending on the context).
Being Mom, I said no.
Being a toddler, she insisted. Gee-gee. Gee-gee.
Being Mom, I kept saying no. No.
That all changed when Nana entered the room.
