N informed me yesterday that he would be going to london.
this is the 1st time my 7-year-old charge will be in an english-speaking country.
"what are you going to do in london?" i asked.
"oh, well..." he began, "we are going to eat really good cookies, and..." he adds, his eyes wide with anticipation, "we are going to buy chewing gum. they have the BEST chewing gum in london."
you learn something new everyday.
