Se habla espanol?

I took the boys to get haircuts today. 3/4 of it went really well...I'll talk about the other 1/4 later. Anyway, we just go to Cost Cutters and today there were two very nice hispanic women that were lucky enough to be working when we came in (invaded) the shop. We were the only customers in there so, each of the women gave 2 of the boys haircuts. As we were getting ready to leave, the ladies were asking the boys if they wanted lolipops. Charlie wanted nothing more than to get out of that place ASAP. Ben, Jack and Drew got their lolipops and one of the women was calling to Charlie to see if he wanted one too. Drew noticed that Charlie was not paying any attention to the woman and decided to "help".

Drew looked right at the woman and said "ummmm....he doesn't speak English".

The very nice hispanic woman thought that was the funniest thing that she had ever heard. She said "He doesn't speak ENGLISH!?!?!"

Drew says "well.......he's our baby.....and we speak English....and.....he will speak English.....he just doesn't speak English yet".

It was very sweet and it was cute that the lady thought it was so funny. The ironic thing was that Charlie understands English perfectly well, he just wanted OUT of the haircut place!

OMG , I can't believe this! Drew and I had the exact same thought- I was planning on posting on this very same topic after this weekend. People are constantly stopping to talk to Claire and I finally said she doesn't speak English because she never responds. She understands English very well, but just doesn't speak yet. Isn't that funny, I'm sure it was much cuter coming from Drew and his explanation too. Tell Drew great inds think a like, amazing!
