The first was when we left the cake shop after buying decorating supplies this morning. I’d told the lady there that I was decorating a dummy cake. Once we got outside Grace looked at me and said very sternly, “We mustn’t say dummy, it’s not kind”. So that told me!
Later in the afternoon we were doing some crafting and she was cutting pieces of tissue paper up. The conversation went something like this:
Grace: Look, this piece I’ve cut is fin.
Me: It is. Remember we say thin, with a ‘th’.
Grace: Oh yeah, thin. And this piece is fat. Ooops I mean *that*.
I love some of the things they come out with, it must be so difficult when you’ve got so much to learn!
