C is old enough that we can have complete conversations. She has quite a little imagination in there. This morning she made a diamond shape with her fingers to show me and I showed her how to make a circle. Then she put one forefinger and thumb tip together flat and put the other hand’s forefinger and thumb around those. "And what’s this Mommy?" "I don’t know, what is it?"
"A duck eating french food."
Oh. Of course. How did I miss that one. From there, she moved to talking about tissues. "Do you don’t want to be a tissue mommy?" "Umm….no?" [having trouble parsing that one]. "Oh" "What do you want to be C?" "A monkey. Maybe Grammy or Grampy will want to be a tissue for Halloween." I guess she is planning well in advance. "Well, what would a tissue costume be?"
"It would look kind of like a ghost, but it would be a tissue." Good so far…then she continued, "And it would be furry. And it would be purple."
