Reported conversations No. 21 : Mad and supermad

Not raining. Emerging from the house I feel like I've gone from the cold shower into the sauna. What a luxurious feeling the sun is after so many days of cold and rain!


B, aged 3, in pink pyjamas adorned with purple cats, and a long chiffon scarf trailing behind, doing the zoomies just before bedtime...


Mama : You do look wonderful! What are you doing?
B : [Jumps off the rocking horse, monkeys her way up to the top bunk and picks up the nearest cuddly creature] I'm rescuing the princess from the witch of Carmine!
Mama : You're not the princess then?
B : [Launches herself down into Mama's arms, jumps to the floor and does a quick circuit of the room] No, silly Mama, I'm not the princess!
Mama : Let me guess - a Winx?
B : [Laughs and jumps back on the rocking horse] No....
Mama : A Gormito?
B : [Purses lips and shakes head, picks up maraccas in one hand, tambourine in the other and gives them a good shaking] No....
Mama : Catwoman? Batman? Robin? Spiderman?
B : [Jumping up and down on the bed until she bangs her head on the top bunk, then launches herself onto the floor, stops dead, grins] No Maah-Maah [sarcasm at 3, God help me at 13] No Maah-Maah, I'm ...... Supermad!

Yes, when Supermad grows up, you better have some Super Powers of your own! ;)

Happy SITS Saturday! I'm off to poke around your blog a bit.

What a wonderful visual you have put in my mind and a great memory for you and your girl. As usual, I am enjoying Italy through your eyes.

It's so great that you are keeping track of all these theatrical presentations by your next generation. That was totally adorable!! I could just see it all!
