Through the eyes of a 4.5 yr old… as imagined by a 39 yr old… who knows the 4.5 yr old QUITE well.
“We got up in the DARK… and mummy told me to put THREE layers on my legs… So I knew it must be one of her Outside Ideas. Sometimes on Mummy’s Outside Ideas I get moany. Mummy’s learning that I don’t get moany when I’m not cold…
And then we saw some people at a station, and they gave Mummy lots of leaflets with train maps on.
And Mummy gave the leaflets to strangers.
And I: Danced in a Twirly Way..
(I think some of them look like mushrooms but mummy doesn’t agree AT ALL) and talked about Why the Lips Are There. Mummy thinks it’s to hide the old shops, but she doesn’t think it hides them, and she doesn’t see why you should hide them anyway.
And Mummy gave strangers leaflets again.
And afterwards we went to the Olympic Park with MY FRIEND ROHAN and we ran and ran and ran all day with sticks and ate flapjacks and slid down slides together and fired spider webs in the river and then went home.
