Upstairs downstairs
May 15, 2013

upstairsdownSon: I’m ready!

Mum: Good. Put your shoes on then – they’re just at the bottom of the stairs.

Son: I can’t go down there it’s dangerous! I’ll wait for you.

Mum: You’re not a baby any more – you can go down the stairs without me.

Son: But what if I slip? Do you remember that time – when I slipped?

Mum: But you’re growing up. You can’t be like this when you’re twenty – saying that you won’t go downstairs without your mummy!

Son: I won’t be like it when I’m twenty. -Four. I promise.

A friendly haunt

D: Do you know – when you grow up you might have to let go of your friends? But that doesn’t matter because you get new friends.
Me: When do you have to let go of your friends?
D: When you’re older – when you’re an adult – some adults.
Me: You don’t HAVE to let go of your friends just because you get older. Do you want to stay friends with your friends?
D: Yeah, I LOVE my friends! I want to stay friends with them EVERY day. Even when I’m dead.
