We live in Greenland so YES our daughter will speak Greenlandic
Obviously since we live in Greenland we are teaching our daughter how to speak Greenlandic but we are also teaching her English since we will be moving back to America when Dh's 10 year contract is up with his work. Well anyway, dd speaks mostly Greenlandic. She knows English but she is much more comfortable with Greenlandic.
Anyway, we are staying with Dh's mom all this month and she has been majorly annoying me! She does not speak Greenlandic at all and sometimes dd will say stuff to her that she doesn't understand. When dd does this we remind her to use English words but sometimes she just gets excited and forgets. It makes mil so mad if we do not correct her. For instance, if dd isn't really talking about anything important I won't correct her. It's really not worth it for me to make her repeat "my purple dog is so cute" in English. Who cares? She's just rambling like toddlers do lol or if she's telling a story to me, dh, and the inlaws, I usually just let her say it. Talking is hard enough at 3, especially telling long stories, so I'm not going to frustrate her just for the convenience of mil.
It pisses off Mil So bad but it pisses me off that she expects so much from a 3 year old but she won't even consider learning the basics of Greenlandic! She also thinks that we need to make English her main language because she'll live here in America eventually. Um no! She will be going to school there and we have friends there. She needs to speak Greenlandic for now at least. Once she's older she won't have a problem speaking both but she's 3 for crying out loud.
