‘Caspian was watching Clangers and just asked whether it was the planet Earth!’ He is two years and eight months old. I’m pretty confident that I haven’t had a clue what the planet Earth was at his age.
While some of his words impress us, others crack us up.
He got into habit of playing with one of us on the floor. We each hold two soft toys which then converse with each other. Sometimes one pair of toys ends up banging the other pair, but that’s another story.
‘Sit down, daddy,’ Caspian shouts impatiently when there is a moment’s delay.
‘What’s the magic word?’
‘Please!’ he shouts even louder.
‘Nicely!’ he bellows.
The other day he was poorly and I took him to a healer. We travelled by public transport while his daddy was taking care of his sister. We caught a train and that was a big adventure as it was his first proper train ride.
‘What’s now, mummy?’ He asked when we got off the train.
‘Now, we are going to catch another train, sweetheart.’
We caught the second train. The excitement started wearing off. Luckily, it was a short ride.
‘What’s now, mummy? Helicopter?’
‘No, just taxi for now.’
I did chuckle though, I must admit. The kid dreams big. Maybe one day…
Then while he was having his treatment with the healer, we ended up on the floor.
‘Caspian are you swimming? Are you a fish?’ she asked.
‘No, I’m a whale.’
I hope these little snippets of conversations put a smile on your face. Have a great day!
