Heather and I were discussing playing with friends as she had, had a friend over after school today.
'Did you have friends at school Mummy?'
'And did you play with them?
'At their houses?'
'Well did Daddy look after me then?'
'No I didn't know Daddy then, and you weren't here.'
'Where was I then?'
She thinks for a bit...
'was I in your tummy?
'NO, you just didn't exist yet?'
Was I a dog then?'
At that point I gave up! But apparently she was a dog who lived with the fairies even though they don't normally keep dogs, her was special, of course - oh and she was a pink dog with curly hair, just in case you're wondering.
