There was also a book with little fuzzy things to touch, but TJ won't let me have it back, so....I love this Kolik's called Gripe Water. I'm guessing it's like Mylicon Drops...Everything's got French on it...How cool is that! Aren't these COOL books! Posted by Hello

    You can tell CurlyT is Canadian!

    Truthfully..i have no idea how to speak french. I dropped out of French school in grade 2. My grade 9 french class consisted of watching lots of Mr. Bean episodes (, drawing pictures of turkeys in a house and laughing how I cleverly titled my artwork "Le Dindon Maison" which translates as "the turkey house", but it rhymes in French and that was a big accomplishment.

    I also did alot of scribbling with a red marker on a kleenex and faking lots of nosebleeds to get out of class.

    I did learn my verbs at least.


    oh wait...Mark just told me those are pronouns. See..i dont even know how to speak english properly!

    Mark is the one who can speak french around here.

    Karla, I'm surprised that you even remember that much.
    I was very good in French because of my Portuguese background but if you were to ask me now, I couldn't begin to tell you what I know.

    Do they not sell Gripe Water in the US? All you mothers out there are missing out on this stuff.
    Upset baby? Gripe Water.
    Upset tummy? Gripe Water.
    Hiccups? Gripe Water.
    I tell you I have gone through a whole bottle with Ethan.
    LOVE IT!!

    Christi, BTW, is there not an English side on the other side of those boxes?
    Usually, it's english on one side and french on the other.
    Temper is another thing I use for Ethan.

    There is an English side, but I didn't realize it for about five minutes. I just sat there looking dumbfounded and wondering what in the world to do with it! I figured the name Kolik was about the same as Colic, so I was going to go on that. Then I found the English side, and found out that my investigative skills are better than I thought!
