Me: When you said that just now, you sounded French.
Max: That's not French.....
(Draw, erase, draw again, cut.....)
Max: This is French. Croissant. Crow-sauuuuunt.
(Clearly, he is a natrual linguist.)
Max: French toast.
(Yes, those are his Ward Clever flannel pajamas he is still wearing at 11:35 a.m.)
Me: What are you doing now?
Max: Being fancy. When you are French you are fancy.
Me: Well, if you want to do fancy right.....
Me: You need a monocle. Of course.
(My, I have a lot of freckles without makeup!)
Max: Ha, that IS fancy!
Me: Wait, what were we doing?
Max: I think math.
The point: Sometimes, during lessons, you need to take a moment out to be French.
And, math is more fun to do if you are trying to keep a paper monocle on your face.
