Another Wenglish entry as dwi'n dysgu Cymraeg [I'm learning Welsh]

Dwi'n ffindio fo'n mwy haws a naturiol i ddefnyddio Cymraeg - pan dwi'n gweiddi ar fy mhlant yn unig!

[I'm finding it more easy and natural to use Cymraeg - only when I'm shouting at my children!]

Commands - adding a throaty 'wch' at the end of a Welsh word - works a treat.

Peidiwch [Don't] is a good one when trying to keep my three year old from poking pens in the wall socket.

And arhoswch! [Wait] came in handy last week when we spent a few days at Disneyland Paris - the distinctive sound clearly audible over the other parents as the kids skipped ahead.
