Why now?

I’ve got a 5yo girl, who I’ll call Lee, and a 15mo boy I’ll call Luke. I work in English (as a second) language teaching and live in Greece with a Greek wife, so I was interested in my daughter’s language development as a bilingual child. The thing was, I didn’t write any of it down and I feel that as a real loss. Luke is just starting to say things beyond “baba” (Greek for “Dad”) etc and I wanted to record it all this time round – for the interest of other parents who are trying to raise kids in a two-language house (and teach kids two mother tongues) and also for my own sake, as an aid to an increasingly terrible memory.
