A Review of Little Pim | French & Mandarin Chinese

This past month, M and I have experienced a pretty big change, welcoming a new addition to our little family. We’ll call him Little Linguist for now. 😉 Before having kids, M and I spoke about our plans regarding language, particularly because we are a bilingual couple living in a monolingual country.
