2 years later...

Hello multilingual blogosphere...I can hardly believe two years have gone by since my last blog post...we are alla alive and well, still in Paris and more quadrilingual then ever. I missed this place: I missed keeping track of my life and of my kids' linguistic development. I kept on observing, but, I guess, life took over and missed the time and energy to record it. I want to come back, I will try my best! I have to tell you all about Milo and Zeno communicating mostly in French with one another, but handling perfectly well Italian and Dutch when we go see family back home; how they begun spontaneosuly uttering sentences in English during a summer holiday in Crete; how I still don't speak Dutch and kinda don't feel like ever learning it; how Milo learnt to read and write in French and I felt so bad for him because it is a damn hard language to learn in elementary school; how he seems to be mathematically giftend and really lazy with reading, while Zeno, who's still in kindergarden, just learnt how to read by himself, Italian and French; how they want me to tell them the good night story in Italian, and no other language is allowed before night time;  how we had a little cousin in the meantime and the boys are all gaga about him; how the Belgianite and I got engaged in the meantime (insert as many question marks as needed here); etc.etc.etc. I have my share of blog posts to work on in the next few weeks, as you can see. Stay tuned, I won't deceive you .

YAY!!!! I'm so glad you decided to come back and post! WOW... your boys' quadrilinguality is just SOOOO amazing! I'm really despairing about my boys' refusal to speak in Portuguese anymore. :( 2 years and a half without going back to Brazil is taking its toll on them and our family. So so sad. Well... I'm really looking forward to hearing [aka reading] more about your family and your adventures, linguistic and otherwise (an engagement? How exciting!)

I'm glad to hear there will be more posts. :) I was very curious about the multilingual life and am now glad I continued to check this blog even after such a long silence.
