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.

Being a helpful leader
October 29, 2012

D: What does that say?

Me: It says ‘Ethical Leadership Matters‘.

D: What does it mean?

Me: Do you know what being a leader is?

D: Yes, someone that’s in the lead – I don’t mean like a dog on the lead.

Me: OK, and ‘ethical’ means doing the right thing.

D: Yes – if you’re the leader you should be helpful, helping… and that’s all I can think of.

Making the rules up
October 8, 2012

D: Who was that woman at the front door?

Me: She wanted me to vote for her.

D: What’s ‘vote’?

Me: It when you choose one thing instead of another.

D: What did she want you to choose?

Me: There’s a group of people in this country who make the rules, and she wanted me to choose her, so that she could help to make the rules.

D: Oh. Are you going to choose her?

Me: I don’t know. We could make our own rules – I think we’d be good at that. What do you think?

D: I don’t think I’d be very good at that – remember that sometimes I get naughty? But I’ll try and be good.
