THE CUTENESS FILES 03
Nadia ran to meet her daddy in a hallway after he came from work and announced with a sad face: I sneezed at school today and nobody said 'cheers'.
We're walking home from school and chatting. Me: "Who would you like to become when you grow up?" Nadia in a serious voice: "I don't know. I'll find out when I grow up."
We're role-playing with Nadia, I'm pretending to be Sven, a reindeer from Frozen and she is Rapunzel (and holding appropriate toys to imitate our characters). After a while me/Sven says wearily: "I'm going home Rapunzel, I'm tired." Nadia/Rapunzel rolling her eyes: "Men."
Nadia was gifted an empty house sticker book to fill in with household equipment, sat with it and wasn't seen for a long time. I thought it would be another quick to finish project with predictable moves but was surprised to find out that there was a whole story to this book - pillows flying in the air, glasses swirling without order and the human characters placed upside down trying to keep balance in the howling wind. She explained how the wind entered the house and played a huge part in rearranging the furniture. It had magical powers making the space look less harmonious but oh so interesting. What a great imagination!
