I finally decided to repair some of their maltreated books (the “disabled” books box was getting way fuller than the “ok” books box — it was time). I was using glue and Scotch tape. Three pairs of eyes watching my every moves. “Qu’est-ce que c’est ?” (What is it?) asks Natanael, showing the glue. To which I explain that’s it’s called “glue” and that it’s used to repair stuff.
Later, when I send them wash their hands, they notice that the soap bar is cracked.
“Maman, le savon est cassé ! Il faut réparer avec la colle !”
(Mom, the soap is broken! Needs (to be) repair(ed) with some glue!)
Life is magic like that.
