Random Miriam Irish things

Miriam is doing her homework and just asked “What’s a par-li-a-ment?”

I told her it’s like Congress.

“Oh!  Okay.” starts scribbling.

Miriam has also started using the word “torch” instead of “flashlight”. I’m trying hard not to correct her.

We’ve also had many a conversation about her school tour, which I kept thinking was a tour of the school.  It’s not.  It’s a field trip.  They’re going to the European Commission Office.  It sounds so…European.  At least we snuck in one trip to Philadelphia before we left the U.S., so she can say she’s seen big historical American things as well.
