On Thursday I received the following update from our childminder:
Yesterday I told LLC we would make some cakes today. As I didn’t have any eggs she said: We Must go to the local shop to buy some eggs.
I asked her to put her coat on but she didn’t want to. I told her again to put her coat on if she wanted to go to the shop. Her reply was that she didn’t want to put her coat on and that I could go to the shop and that she could stay by herself. I told her that I wouldn’t leave her by herself and she said: I am 4 now and I know about all this stuff...
I asked her about which stuff she knew about and she said: I remember not to touch the television, not to go upstairs…
She eventually put her coat on and we bought the eggs.
I don’t know whether to laugh or to cry.
