A car to sleep?

BK4 will be two on Sunday.

She and I usually snuggle on the sofa in the evening for her to go to sleep. So, when it's bedtime, she calls to me: "come, come" pointing to the sofa, then "auto" and gets the blanket.

Hang on. A car?

Well, a blanket is couverture in French, which rhymes with voiture, Auto in German.

The workings of a multilingual mind, go figure!
