Hey, thefragile7393! Thanks for checking in...let us know if you're around today!
FLDoula - Do you think you'll get your certification one day? Or is really necessary, once you've participated in births & gotten the experience?
Again, I can totally relate to wanting to move back to English. We've had that thought MANY times. DH got the language much faster and more completely than I have; he was a reg pioneer when we first switched, so he had lots of time really having to listen & learn. And since he's an elder, he's given so many talks that that has forced him in to learning. Sometimes I feel so behind! I mean, I've had some distraction - having two kids while trying to learn, helping to care for my mom who required 24 hour care (she died a year ago) while trying to learn...but still! I wish I could push a button & be totally fluent! I did have a good experience in service on Saturday, so that helps. DS says he'd rather be in English, but he really understands a lot more than he wants to admit. When we're at hospitality and the only way he can get dessert is to ask in Spanish, he's the first to speak up!
He gave his first talk a few weeks ago, reading a portion of Psalms 1, and that helped get his confidence up a little. We'll see how DD does - she asks for stuff in both languages (in fact, in the middle of the night she was asking for jugo (juice - she actually pronounces gogo
Anyway, I'll check back later. Have a great day!
