a two minute window into the internal workings of an almost 3year olds pre-sleep mind: an excerpt

about to have lights out…

Ella:

…we have to get a taxi to the train station, if we get on the bus we can stand if we don’t want to sit down we can stand, not sit if we want to stand and if the boys don’t make any noise they wont wake me up. or daddy up, or Rowan up. if daddy sleeps, but he won’t sleep…. not on a bus (laughs at the apparent obvious foolishness of this statement)

I don’t have a bus, or train tracks. only a light… and a cooker

that light’s not a circle its a square. and that’s a rectangle (the side of her bed)

and a light down stairs. in the dining room. and that’s rowans bed. and its turned. you made mine this way didn’t you. and mummy made rowans that way and its turned isn’t it…. and mine’s this way cos you made it and mummy made that one… it’s Rowan’s

if rowan wakes up in the night and takes my monkey and my other monkey and my blanket and my nother blanket then I won’t be able to sleep all the way. (holds her hands up in a shrug and shakes her head)…
