I used to post to this board years ago when my kids were infants... Now my two boys are 5 and 8. We live in Norway, and my husband speaks Norwegian to them and I speak English (I'm Canadian).

Welcome back to the board, Heather. I'm pretty sure we have at least two regulars who are fluent in French, but I can't remember usenames at the moment, sorry. Yannie does still come around so you

Hi and welcome to the board!

I'm not Canadian and hence, I'm not the best person to answer. But I think "je plaisantais" is just fine - or at least, understandable to a French-speaking (but not necessarily Canadian) listener.

For "quit fooling around", how about "arrete de jouer"? Or maybe "sois serieux/serieuse"?
