    1. With each other, we speak Russian. But with our kid we speak English. She knows a few words in Russian (grandpa, cabbage, doll) but that’s it. She’s an English-speaker and a proud American.

        1. Exactly. N started learning Ukrainian since February 24 because he wants to know the most recent news developments without having to wait for me to come and translate. But before this, he couldn’t understand almost anything, let alone actually say a few sentences.
