On the subject of school – something they must have been talking about a lot at nursery at the moment
When I get to school I’m going to do different things really I am!
When I am five I can go to school and have new Ariel Duplo I can!
(Ed note: explanation provided by H – the Ariel Lego she saw in the shop says 5+ on the box! Quite how that has become so tightly tied to going to school is anyone’s guess.)
Indefatigable logic as always:
Mummy, can I have another gingerbread man?
Not right now lovely
How about now?
Wait 10 minutes ok, wait until the clock says one and nine.
… Two minutes later
Mummmeee it says one and one!
I know, but what are you waiting for?
In the car on the way home from our Devon holiday:
I went on a holidays trip with Mummy and Daddy and Elma and Grandpa and it was fabulous really it was!
On playing church:
Mummy this god is very dangerous.
Oh, why is this god very dangerous?
Because he has shark pointy things!
Does this god look a bit like the Gruffalo?
On choosing her Sunday afternoon film:
What do you want to watch today lovely?
James P Cinnamon and Ousky-Mousky!
On our national hobby:
Mummy, I’m chewing!
What are you chewing sweetie? (looking around the garden for anything that might have been considered edible and drawing a blank).
I’m chewing for the slide, behind [Elma]!
And my absolute favourite of the month, overheard in the background of a video H took of an animatronic dinosaur at the Natural History Museum:
Stick your tongue out at me dinosaur!
