The things they say

Six degrees at 9am, with blue skies. But there was an interesting wind in Carmine this morning, and if I feel it against my skin tomorrow, I'll describe it for you.

I always promised myself I wouldn't harp on about how cute the children are - this is a subject fit only for emails to grandparents. BUT I just can't help myself, they're so funny sometimes. Besides, it's almost Christmas, and Mama deserves some self-indulgence too.

So here's a quick digest of some recent comments that made me laugh...

AJ aged 4, when asked what his father does for a living : "He cuts down trees and tells B off."

B aged 2-and-a-half, when told off by her father (shaking head in philosophical fashion) : "Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear..."

AJ when asked why he is calling for his Mama at four in the morning : "Because I like you."

B, hearing the hunters shooting in the woods above Carmine : "Naughty men, kill goat!"

AJ, practising lines for the Festa di Natale : "I bambini sono cambiati, purtroppo* - that's a kind of mouse, you know."

*purtroppo = unfortunately, topo = mouse

B, having been left alone in the kitchen with the stepstool, a pack of sliced bread on top of the fridge and a toaster on a shelf six feet above ground : "Breakfast is ready!"

The childrens reasoning is wonderful, try to remember these as they soon grow up. I hope that the little toast makers activity is an early warning of danger for you to take note of. It shows how intelligent your children are.

For sure - the toaster was instantly a shelf higher. She's in a moment that's hard to handle - into everything - and I feel like I'm always saying 'no' to her, which feels wrong. We learn together!

I read these earlier this morning and got a laugh from them. I've already shared your breakfast story with someone today. I wanted to come back and comment.

I've written some of the funny things my girls said in their baby books. There is no way I can remember. I'm glad your writing yours down.

Merry Christmas,

Joy
