One of the fun parts of saturday school is deciding what phrase I am going to write. Working on it with my mom entails emails going back and forth all week. The first thing we determine is if the phrase works in both languages – there are phrases I want to write but they translate weird, so my mom will present a variation that makes sense in Hindi but it reads weird in English. Many phrases get tossed for that reason.

My favorite part is what I like to call the “cheeseometer” we send each other phrases and throw out a lot because they’re just too cheesy. I am usually at fault because I love cute, simple things. This week’s phrase was one my mom proposed and I immediately loved it ^_^

Happy Saturday!
