May 23 will mark the fourth anniversary of Bringing up Baby Bilingual. I would love to see my stats counter (at the bottom of the page) hit 50,000 by that day! It just feels like a strong, solid number for a birthday. This morning, I'm at 48,241 hits, and the blog gets an average of 70 or so a day. At this rate, I'll be ~250 short on my blogiversary.
In that case, I'd better start writing about politics, celebrities, alien abductions, and/or Viagra so that I'll grab more Googlers than usual! (Like the week or so after asking about for vocabulary advice for potty training Griffin in French--lots of people curious about French skivvies showed up to this blog. And were mightily disappointed.)
So, um, have you heard that the stars of Lost, on a press junket to Vegas, mysteriously disappeared somewhere in Nevada after sightings of strange bright lights in the sky, and then their spaceship was stopped in Arizona for not having proper papers proving their citizenship, but they bribed the cops to let them go by offering them a suitcase full of male performance enhancement drugs?
Oh, but this not-yet-confirmed, late-breaking news bulletin has nothing, absolutely nothing, to do with bilingual families. I can't post something random like that just to inflate my readership numbers, especially with people who will show up once and never return. That's unethical! Unless....
This just in! Now, after spending time with their alien abductors, the actors are committed to teaching their children to speak Martian!
