A real changing chameleon

changedchameleonA REAL CHANGING CHAMELEON

It’s a chameleon, but I’m a bit disappointed because its tail’s changed – I didn’t paint a purple tail. I painted all different colours in that curly bit. And I painted its sides red and white like a candy cane. And I gave it a red head. And I didn’t paint its feet all multi-coloured. It’s changed colours!

Wearing different hats
June 9, 2013

differenthatsSon: What do you think of my hat?

Mum: Which hat?

Son: My imaginary hat.

Mum: Ah – yes, It’s a fantastic hat.

Son: Everyone’s got an imaginary hat. We learnt about it at school today. When you look at something and think about it, it goes onto your hat.

Mum: When you look at what?

Son: Like that picture on the wall. I look at that picture and now it’s on my hat.

Mum: Ah – I see. Does the hat change?

Son: Whenever you look at things yes. If you don’t imagine them then it doesn’t change. Everyone in the world’s got one. But don’t make it too big otherwise you won’t fit through the door.

Mum: So is there just one thing at a time on your hat?

Son: No, you can think of all sorts of things at once and they come onto your hat all together.
Guess what? At school one person said “ice cream” for their hat, but that would just melt in the sun wouldn’t it? And it would drip all down their face!
And another person said “chocolate”, but that would get wet from the rain and melt in the sun, so Mrs W said, “Only take it out in the cloud!”

Fooling the scales
April 23, 2013

foolingscalesMum: What are you doing?

Son: [Squatting on the bathroom scales] I’m trying to be heavier.

Mum: That won’t work – you need to be carrying a big pile of heavy books, or some suitcases.

Son: Or a cherry!

Mum: I don’t think a cherry will be heavy enough to make a difference.

Son: I know – a big thorn bush!

Mum: That would be a bit prickly to hold.

Son: You could hold it by the stalk at the end?

Mum: I suppose, but it would still be a bit awkward.

Son: Maybe I could hold a big dinosaur then?

Mum: If you can find one.

Son: Oh yes, because they all got killed…

Chameleon

D: It’s a chameleon! You know chameleons can change colour can’t they?

Oh – to be a woman!
March 8, 2013

tobeawomanMe: Did you know that today is International Women’s Day?
D: What’s International Women’s Day?
Me: It’s when women – across the world – celebrate being women.
D: Do mens have one?
Me: No.
D: Oh – that’s not fair!
Me: Well, a long time ago, men got to do everything and women didn’t get to do anything at all – so now that we can, we celebrate it! Men don’t need to celebrate.
D: But that was a long time ago, before I was born, so I didn’t get to do everything!
Me: You can help celebrate today – because you’ve got a lovely mummy who’s a woman!
D: Mmmmm… You know the Plough pub in Stony Stratford? Well, when it was ages ago and men got to do everything – was that when the Plough was a school?
Me: It could have been, yes.

Birthday blues
February 20, 2013

birthdaybluesD: I WISH my birthday was today.

Me: I’m sure you do.

D: It’s just not fair that it’s not until June – that’s such a long time away.

Me: It will be here soon enough.

D: But I get so BORED waiting for it! Can we change it?

Me: Your birthday is one thing we can’t change – what are you going to do, get born again?!

D: Oh. No.

Beware of over-processing
December 5, 2012

bewareoverprocessMe: Were you just gargling with your jelly?

D: Yes. I did it through my teeth first – in, out, in, out, in, out. Then it was like a juice drink, so I slurped it and gargled it… It didn’t taste very nice when I swallowed it though.

Me: You probably over-processed it.

D: Huh?

Me: You probably changed the taste of it by doing too much with it in your mouth!

D: Yes, I won’t do it any more – it tastes nicer when it’s still like jelly.
