The Minor Dialogues #3

May 1, 2008

The scene: Rowan on the loo this evening having her pre-bed poop!

Mummy… can I have some of that ocean?

I looked over to the shelf where we store all our bubble bath and creams and beauty things and stuff and I thought…

… Que?

Think Manuel … that was me.


This? [pointing]

No.. she waggled her head… Oh-shun!

Again. Que?


Nope!! It’s *THAT* one mummy… [frustrated] the OH-SHUN!

I looked along the shelf scanning the Body Shop bubble bath.. the cranberry soap… the bits and bobs and bottles of self tanning moisturiser… I just couldn’t think what she meant…

That one!!! she said…. pointing as if her life was depending on it… her little shoulder straining out of it’s socket practically as she said That one mummy! The pink ocean!

Oooooo- wah! [light dawns]

    That’s so cute! I love how kids speak. The other day in the garden I pointed out an earwig and then a woodlouse to ST. A few minutes later he shouted “Mummy, look! Here’s another ear mouse!”
