Spanish or German?

Well, once I had decided to go for it, the other big decision was: Spanish or German?? German is my other other language, if you know what I mean. In it's favour were that we know another family who are raising their daughter bilingually with German, but I had been doing Spanish a lot longer, and my confidence with Spanish was much better. I was particularly conderned that I would mess up on the genders of simple words and basically just not know enough vocabulary.

Anyway, I need hardly have worried so much. I'm still glad we went with Spanish (better beaches) but really, there are soooo many words that just don't seem to get covered in your usual university degree: y'know - nappy, teddy, poo, crawl, Big Bird... that it has been a real learning experience and would have been just as good in either language. Kids don't really speak that much for months, so that gives plenty of time to check stuff in the dictionary!
