With the Big Pixie:
"Mummy, I was thinking. If we write down all the opening paragraphs to a new
exciting story, then we can see how many similes and sections of alliteration
we can spot! That'll be fun!"
With the Small Pixie:
Me: "Sweetheart - what are you doing?"
Small "Me no say. Me needa gimp. Me no fine me cock me go a garnen pay." (I
can't say the words. I need a drink. I've lost my Crocs again and I want to play in the garden)
I LOVE the intensity changes! I have one child who doesn't know which colour is which, and one who could breakdown the compounds and decipher the electronic bonds. Makes for an interesting breakfast conversation.
