Learn some Chinese!

I just posted this to FB, waiting for Aglet to go back to sleep. But it’s important, so I’m copying it over here.

We learned a very few words of Chinese and I think they saved us all. Don’t want, please, give that to me, mama, baba. We have more on the phrase list that we were taught, but those are the ones we used. When he was yelling and pointing, and we could get him to repeat please before we handed him what he wants, it was a miracle.
