So today, I was just playing with the kids, you know, fighting a bit, and Matteo goes:
'faciamo che io sono una (insert word I didn't understand here) e tu ti siedi sopra me'
now my italian has improved. but not that much. so i let him repeat it a few times, and still didn't understand.
And suddenly, Emanuela calls from the kitchen 'he is a sofa'.
ladies and gentlemen, the wonders of au pairing.
