Evie: “When I go to Paris, I want to see a guillotine! Will there be guillotines there?”
I was a little disturbed by this, but I knew where she got it from at least: Madeline and the Bad Hat. But in that book, the boy uses the guillotine on chickens, so she didn’t actually know what a guillotine was for…until she watched Rick Steves’ Paris with us!
Evie: “I wish I was born when they chopped off heads because I really wanted to see a guillotine that chops off heads.”
Sara: “French makes my tongue all confused and twisted up and it doesn’t know what to do.” – Ask her to say monsieur sometime.
Evie, smooching Oliver on each cheek: “Oliver doesn’t know how to smooch any way, so I want to teach him how to smooch the French way first!”
