My boy speaks English

And we don't even live in an English-speaking country. Pretty good for a wee lad of 21 months, right?

Admittedly he only knows one word: "Shrek" -- as in the animation movie. He really loves to watch the opening scene (over and over). I guess seeing a green monster bathing in mud makes for great entertainment at that age.

I would probably be even more boastful of his language skills if his pronunciation hadn't been a bit off. To tell the truth, coming from his mouth "Shrek" sounds exactly like: "Fuck".

Maybe he's not a language genius after all. Maybe (as some would have it) I failed him in my upbringing, forever condemning him to the bottom of society. Or maybe he's simply smart enough to realize that a minimal vocabulary is no problem as long as you go for maximum impact.

Yeah, I'd say he's doing great, too. Of course, I am awfully biased... :-)
