How do you say...?

Tonight, after reading a bedtime story, I tucked Francis in her bed and laid down next to her to discuss the last couple of days of school. She mentioned again that there was a girl in her class that didn't speak English. So I asked Francis, "Would you like me to teach you how to say,'My name is Francis' so you can talk to her?" She excitedly said "yes" and we began practicing "Me llamo es Francis. Me llamo es Francis. Me llamo es Francis." When she'd said it about ten times without trouble, she looked at me and said, "Mommy, how do you say 'Do you want to be my friend?'."

Have I mentioned this week how much I love this girl? Big sigh, I do.

BTW: I had to look it up. It's "¿Quieres ser mi amigo?"

Update: I have been reminded by my pal M.Anderson that it's actually "Me llamo Francis."
Whoops. It's been a few years. I may have to enroll in a class with Francis. ;) Thanks M!
