Flashlight or Torch?
Posted 10:56 AM on Mon-2-Jul-2012

It was time to get dressed, Kanon walked into his bedroom,

"oooh, its dark.  Don't worry Mummy, we can use my flashlight!"

He was very dissapointed that I just opened the curtains.  I must also remeber to cut down on the american programs, don't we call it a torch in New Zealand?


The other day Daddy was trying to get Kanon to use his manners to ask for a biscuit.

"Whats the magic word?" asked Daddy,

"Abracadabra" replied Kanon

Kanon won and get his biscuit.

thats funny - kids absorb soo much don't they! One thing we have here is saying Dance with an American accent - that comes from singing some USA songs. Can't get them to change!

My youngest would look for his 'flashlight' in the 'trunk' of the car, so he could walk along the 'sidewalk' - Disney Junior you have a lot to answer for!

Flashlight is very American! Just like garbage! We definetly call it a torch! The magic word is indeed 'abracadabra' - very clever! I asked 2 cute little girls once what the magic word was when I they wanted something... their answer: 'flowers'. :-)

Cute - I remember a young friend of mine who always used 'open sesame' for his magic word.
