Lou's Diary
A little prince, not quite like the others
  Hello, I am a little boy who only sees right with his heart...
Which doesn't make my parent's daily life any easier. So I'm blind and different (mentally speaking).

Lou and movement


Welcome to Lou's blog

This blog was born in french during autumn 2003 and is now progressively being translated in your language.

New articles will therefore appear on a regular basis.


... my apologies to the people who hadn't understood this yet, all articles on this website are created and written by myself (his dad).

Lou is currently unable to do it,, just like he is to this day unable to grasp the concept of a "computer", "internet", or to focus for a long period of time on a conversation. Only time will tell us if we manage to integrate him completely in the world in which he lives.

Therefore all stories, despite relating actual facts, are obviously biased by my interpretation of his behavior. But having known him for over five years, I don't think I'm getting it wrong.

Want to know more ? Check out the "read me" page.

95. Now I'm speaking Dutch !

In the country where I live, there are 3 official languages. So starting from age 9 kids pick a second language at school. Including my sister Eva since the beginning of this schoolyear.
She came home singing songs in Dutch ... I was immediately hooked once my parents explained to me that it was another language, like English.
It didn't take more for me to start imitating Eva or asking daddy to speak in Dutch.
Since he knows some basics, hij heeft mij in vlaams beantwoorden ( ...erm... ) (he replied in Dutch). I burst into laughter.

Since then, and especially during these holidays in the Ardennes, I regularly ask daddy to speak to me in Dutch. And I imitate him in a funny way, such as "ay, oy, oy, oy, oy" (because many words in that language "sound" a bit like "ay" or "hey" in English).

The picture is from one of those meals where daddy imitates me when I'm speaking Dutch.
Needless to say I love it !

Note : Dear reader, please don't interpret any part of this article as making fun of my Dutch friends !

Hello, I came by way of "vegemite in a jar." I love the pictures of Lou with movement, and the wind. He is truly angelic! I'll visit again.
Be well.

Hello, Loulou! I can only speak English so learning Dutch must be great fun! And Daddy seems to be a wonderful teacher. You have fun learning it okay? Maybe someday you can teach me! Love you sweetie! Kisses!!!

Wow. It's wonderful to be able to speak another language, something that I cannot do. I wish that I had have learnt something other than English when I was at school in Australia but I chose to study another subject instead of languages. Pity, it would have come in useful during all my travels over the past seven years . . .

G'day Lou,

How exciting to learn another language.

When I was going to High School in Australia, I learnt French for two years, got my highest mark of 91 in my French exam. Now years later, because I did not try and speak a little French each day, I have forgotten it all.

It is so interesting listening to people speak in a different Language.

If you heard my accent Lou, you would probably laugh out loud, we Australians have a funny accent.

Have fun my little mate, catch up with you soon
