End of sustained reading…
H - “Miss J! (excitedly waves finger in my face) I got a paper cut. Look!”
(looks back at finger) “Whoa - reading can be dangerous!”
(walking away, under breath) “It’s so worth it though.”

Love each one or love none.
Gotta say I was suitably impressed.
Me thinks she’s gonna be a writer too.

So my daughter is really into the movie Rise of the Guardians right now. She’s too young to really understand what’s going on in it, but she does get that the Guardians are good and the Boogie Man is bad. After watching it one night she was very concerned that the “bad man” would try to come into our house. After assuring her that he couldn’t come in, and that if he did I would beat him up, she looked me straight in the eye and said this:
"Yeah, and if he gets in, mummy, he’ll poop on the carpet, and then we’ll have to clean it up!"
And she was just so concerned about the possibility of this incredibly dark person pooping on our floor and leaving us a mess that I couldn’t help but to laugh at her. Kids really do think in strange ways.
