The Lovely Melanie texted me at 7am – “Remind Millie to bring her violin home tonight”.
At breakfast I remind Millie…in my own special way. 🙂
ME: Millie, Mummy says you need to bring your violin home tonight.
MILLIE: Mmm, yeah, I know.
ME: What have you got to do, Millie?
MILLIE: Er, what? Um, bring my…?
MILLIE: Home. I know!
ME: And where is your violin at the moment?
MILLIE: At school.
ME: And where have you got to bring it?
MILLIE: Uhhh! Home!
ME: And when have you got to do that?
ME: Before or after school?
MILLIE: Unhh! God! After school.
ME: And how are you going to get it home?
MILLIE: What? Carry it?
ME: Yay! And what are you going to carry it with?
MILLIE: My hands! I know!
ME: What will you be carrying with your hands?
MILLIE: The violin!
ME: Well done.
But the question remains: Will Millie’s violin be there when I get home tonight…?
Yes, it was!
