I am joining Older Mum in Muddle this week in her quarterly celebration of the season past. This week we are contemplating Spring – what there was of it.
Spring 2013 saw the advent, on Bibsey mountain, of the deep and meaningful conversation. Bibsey and I have our most important chats on the sofa or driving up and down the hill from and to Guardaría. Here are some excerpts:
Bibsey: What’s in your hands mummy?
Me: The steering wheel.
B: No! What’s in your hands?
M: The steering wheel.
Repeat exchange several times.
B: OK, what’s in your legs mummy?
M: Bones. Bones and muscles and quite a lot of other interesting stuff.
Same scene different day.
B: What’s in your tummy mummy? Have you got a baby in there?
M: No, darling. No baby.
B: I wish I had a baby in my tummy.
M: What have you got in your tummy?
Yet another day. Same scene.
B: What have you got in your head mummy
I’m ready for this now.
M: Brains. What have you got in your head Bibs?
B: Nutcases. Mummy?
B: How do babies get down the stairs?
I just love all this stuff. The ‘whys?’ are coming thick and fast and I am just trying to keep up. As you can imagine the spring days have simply flown by. For more musings on spring click on the badge below. Thanks for visiting.
