Reported conversations No. 15 : I say, you say

Yesterday at lunchtime. B (aged three) is beaming. Mama takes the opportunity and plunges in ...

Mama : Darling, tomorrow we'll go to kindergarten with AJ...

B : (stops beaming, starts frowning)

Mama : We can meet your maestra, see all of your friends, and play and do painting...

B : (stops frowning, lip starts to quiver)

Mama : I'll leave you in kindergarten and go to do some shopping, and I'll come back for you and AJ after a short while...

B : (lips quiver, tears start to stream, eyes become big - a picture of the pathetic)

Mama : But what's wrong, darling? You always told me you wanted to go...

B : (between heart-wracking sobs) But Mama, I don't want to go to kindergarten, I want to go to asilo!


It's a big day for a little girl. Good luck, sweetheart!

Good luck, indeed, to both of you!

Ha! Hope all went well today - for the both of them!

How sweet! I hope it goes well.

Mrs B said...

I'm sure she had a fine time - and the day went very quickly for you too!
