|Birthday Party in School|
DD: I'm hungry.
Me: Supper is in 10 minutes.
DD: I can't wait 10 minutes. What can I have to keep me company?
DD (doing a maths workbook): 1 less than 9. Hmm what's one more less than nine?
Me: One less than nine, not one more-less.
DD: OK, one more less than nine is...?
Me: There's no more!
DD: There is, I'm just only on the first one.
DD: What are you giving me to eat?
Me: Tuna in pitta.
DD: NO, I DON'T WANT TUNA IN PITTA! I HATE THAT! I'M NOT EATING IT!
Me: (putting the plate in front of her and walking away) Here it is.
DD: WHAT'S INSIDE HERE? NOOOOOO! I DIDN'T WANT TUNA! I HATE TUNA!
Me: Have one bite and see what it's like.
DD: Mmmmm (more silence) Mmmmm.
|The present we bought for the classroom|
DD: Who doesn't know how to tap dance? It's easy! You just bang your feet on the floor so it makes a noise. Who doesn't know how to do that?
