M may often talk robot or become all consumed by his car track when I chatting to him about the ways of the world. But low and behold he is listening, as new evidence from our childminder presents. Of course this story is related to marriage, because that seems to be one of my children’s favourite subjects to riff on…
Babysitter: M, you lucky boy! You get to next to your girlfriend Isabella! She’s back from her holidays today.
M: No, she’s only my friend. (seriously)
Babysitter: Oh, that’s not what you said before!
M: Well, mommy said I can’t marry two girls ….Don’t tell Isabella, but I’m going to marry Hope!
I’m glad I’m not talking to myself. Maybe our next chat will be about not toying with girls’ affections! 🙂
