Forget-me-not-Friday #70, featuring Eclipse 2015

My 4 1/2 year old and I are discussing the eclipse. 4 1/2 year old: “Mummy, what an e-clips?” Me, having googled this and feeling smugly prepared: “Well! It only happens once in a very, very long time.  The moon passes in front of the sun and casts a shadow, and that means the sun can’t light […]

Nearly-four-year-old: “You pushed me!” Nearly-two-year-old, matter of factly but still in babyish voice: “I didn’t push you” Nearly-four-year-old, startled and indignant at this sudden eloquence in her little sister “You DID push me!” Nearly-two-year-old, […]
