"Mommy, 'Ching' means 'thank you' in Nicky's language." (Nicky is a friend in her class from China.) I asked "Do you mean in Chinese?" She says yes. I said well actually I think that 'xie xie' means thank you, not 'ching'. She insists it is 'ching'. And then tells me that is what it said on tv and that she is going to say that tomorrow and that she is going to talk to Nicky about it! I am afraid that 'ching' is going to be interpreted as something else, so I am trying to persuade her not to do that and told her that we would look it up online tomorrow, etc. etc. And she says (very indignant):
"Mommy, I don't know a lot of things, but I know what 'ching' means."!!!!!!
