Conversations with a two-year old

Two recent conversations with Daniel

No. 1 – Blue sky thinking

Daniel (Sitting in the back of the car):  What’s that blue animal mean, mummy?

Me: I don’t know.  What blue animal?  Where is it?

Daniel: That blue animal far, far away.

Me: Can you see it?

Daniel: I can’t.  What does it mean, mummy?

Me: I don’t know which blue animal it is.

Daniel:  The blue animal far, far away in the new zoo (pause for thought.  Silence from me as I digest this.) The blue animal far, far away in the new zoo in a different world.  The world full of new zoos for blue animals. (I am still silent). I am going to sing a song about the blue animal at granny and grampa’s house… blue animal, blue animal…

I started blogging after the birth of my first child. Since I stopped working, I realise I am defined far more by my relationships than by what I do. So, I am: wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend.
