Babicka have speck (grandma has bacon)

As I was tucking Sonja into bed tonight, I told her that papa will be back tomorrow, and that at the end of the week we will be heading over to visit grandma and grandpa (in czech, babicka + dedecek).

On hearing the news, her face lit up with a huge smile and those dimples of hers: "Babicka have speck".

Speck (in german) is bacon, already cured so that you can just eat it as is (without cooking). At the end of our last visit to Martin's parents', grandma packed some slices of bread and slices of speck, so that we could give those to Sonja in th train if she got hungry. She did get hungry. And she still remembers that...

grandma has bacon.
