In my family of six kids (I’m number three), the first set of kids who were born overseas grew up conversing in Chinglish, while the second set of kids who were born in the U.S. didn’t. I’m sure my parents wanted to raise us to be “American,” which meant speaking English whenever possible and limiting the amount of Chinese we spoke. I’m sure they regret it now. I know I do.
That’s why I’m encouraging the boy to speak Ebonics and American Drag Queen whenever possible because that shizz is hard to pick up when you’re older, fo’ sure.
BTW, boy/girl twins are the best, so kudos to your parents for, you know, making you and your sister and stuff!
