Dora

I forgot to mention that each day begins with a double dose of Dora the Explorer in french whilst we try to get all three washed, dressed, fed, brushed and LissaLou off to school on time. We are enjoying the mixture of french and english from Dora, but our favourite bit is Schiper le Renard who comes to swipe things. We have learnt to cry with Dora, "Chiper, arrete de chiper!" and chuckle at his frustrated "oh mince!" Does anyone know what he says in english? It is also a very useful phrase to apply to other situations ie "mouche, arrete de moucher" "jojo, arrete de joer" "moustique, arrete de moustiquer"...oh the list is endless!

Collin shouts it. " Swiper! No Swiping! Swiper! No Swiping! Swiper! No Swiping!" Then Swiper says "Aww Man! and slinks away. Dora turns to us and says "that was a close one." Then Collin feels proud of himself for helping Dora and Boots.
