Jack has always asserted that he's a cat, and that he lives in Catland. Now, as a result of hearing lots of different languages at school, he's teaching us some of his "mother tongue"- Cattish.  We were in the car the other day and he was trying to teach us "how to roll our H's" like they do in Cattish.  It's kind of a cross between a German gutteral sound and a rolled R, and there are several unpronounceable words that start or contain these "rolled H's". One means "Nap" in Cattish. Of course. There are many words that mean Nap in Cattish.

And so, we were driving down Hűvösvölgy Ut, practicing rolling our H's and suddenly Nate discovered that he could roll his R's.  So-- learning another language benefits you in many ways. :-)
