A Poland funny

Krakow was the home of Pope John Paul. His face is everywhere there. Jaan quickly learned to recognize him. In Russian, the pope is called the Roman Papa.

There are also many, many Catholic priests and nuns in Krakow. The first time Jaan noticed a nun, he asked, "Is that the Roman Mama?" Of course, we explained. However, from then on, whenever our children saw a nun, they'd yell that they saw мамашка (a little mama), instead of монашка (a nun).

I think this is oh so sweet! If they were within ear-shot I bet that comment made their day!
