He's turning British

Within 24 hours of beginning school at his British school, this was the conversation I had with my son:

Me: Zoltan, did you leave your sweatshirt at school?
Zoltan: My what?
Me: Your sweatshirt.
Zoltan: Yes mommy, I left my jumper in my locker.

Of all the Britishisms I love, and there are many, jumper is the solitary one I can't stand. It gives me scary flashbacks of that unfortunate skirt/overalls combo wardrobe item too many poor little girls had to wear in the 1970s.

Just wait until he insists it's hhherbs ("h" pronounced) and al-loo-min-ee-um instead of aluminum. We loved the British school our son attended. He thrived there. I hope yours has just as much of a great experience learning this year- jumper and all!
