The boss speaks Chinese

Not French ☝ but Mandarin. 😁

For some time now, we've heard Clarissa sing in Mandarin, and count in Mandarin.

Other than that she either smiles sheepishly and ignores us or simply responds with a "no" when we deliberately speak to her in complete Mandarin sentences.

Lately she's started voluntarily speaking to me in Mandarin, to repeat and stress her point.

The first instance:
I was sitting on the sofa and she wanted me to get up.

πŸ‘Ά: Mummy, come up.

I continued to sit on the sofa.

πŸ‘Ά: Mummy, come up! Walk! (Points at the floor) Mummy, θ΅·ζ₯!

The second instance:
I was trying to make her sleep.

πŸ‘§: Clarissa, it's time to sleep.
πŸ‘Ά: Don't want sleep!
πŸ‘§: It's late. It's time to sleep.
πŸ‘Ά: I don't want! 不要!


Is it because she thinks I don't understand English? πŸ˜‚
