Conversations with an almost 4 year old

Lottie: Mummy, I love you soooooooooo much
Me: I love soooo much too
Lottie: You love me more than you love Daddy don't you?
Me: No I love you the most in little girl love and Daddy the most in grown up man love.
Lottie: But Daddy isn't a man, he is a horse.

Me: What do you think you might like for your birthday present?
Lottie: A light I can hold
Me: You mean like a torch?
Lottie: No, like a light I can hold
Me: Can you show me one at the shop?
Lottie, No, I think you are big enough to know what I mean all by yourself.

This one happened driving to kinder
Lottie: When I am big I will be able to drive because I will have big long legs like you
Me: Yes you will
Lottie: And I will have bigger arms too
Me: Yes
Lottie: And I will have a really big vagina too one day won't I?
Me: Spluttering 'maybe' and nearly driving the car into a tree in shock

And I will leave you with that lovely thought for the day while I go back and hit the sewing machine and madly try and get the party dress finished, the stock ready for the shop and all the presents and decorations finished in time.

Good thing I wasn't drinking, I would have spat it out. That is so cute coming from a 4 yr old. I guess I can look forward to these kind of conversations one day too.

Hi there, I found you via Pip. That is an absolute diamond. My niece & your daughter would get on famously. She's got some great thoughts on making babies.

Ingrid I am in the office reading your blog (naughty me) trying not to laugh out loud in case someone asks me what I'm laughing at! Too funny.
