|Now I am 9 I'm as clever as clever.|
(With apologies to AA Milne)
DD and I climbed into bed together for a story. We're almost finished reading The Wouldbegoods and I wanted to press on with it. DD had found her book from our visit to the Natural History Museum two years ago. She asked me to read the section about dinosaurs to her. I started but it was soooo boring. After the first two pages I was tired and couldn't be bothered with it.
Me: I'm not reading any more of this. It's too boring.
DD: Well that's rude.
DD: Mummy why did you come to live here?
Me: Because this is where Jewish people live.
DD: Wait a minute. Are we Jewish!?
Me: Of course we are. What did you think?
DD: I didn't know we were Jewish.
Me: Do you know it in Hebrew that anachnu Yehudim (we're Jewish).
DD: Ohhhh, why didn't you say so?
Answering questions on a reading comprehension for English homework.
DD: What is the relationship between the two girls? Mummy! How do you write 'best friends'?
Me: Write 'best' how it sounds.
DD: Doesn't matter. I wrote BFF.
