Small Girl: Mum, what would you do if a frog jumped on your head?
Me: Scream.

Small Girl: Mum, what would you do if a dandelion grew in the kitchen floor?
Me: Pull it up and throw it away.
Small Girl: and then?
Me: Scream.

Small Girl: Mum, what would you do if a spider ate up all my dinner?
Me: A spider couldn’t eat your whole dinner.
Small Girl: It could if it was a spider as big as Charlie.
Me: Then I’d scream.

Small Girl: Mum, what would you do if a dinosaur ate me all up?
Me: I’d reach my hand down his neck and pull you out again.
Small Girl: But I’d be all squidgled up from being chewed on.
Me: I’d wash you and then I’d iron you to smooth you out.
Small Girl: But then I’d be flat like a pancake.
Me: I’d blow you up again like a balloon.
Small Girl: But what would you do if I popped like a balloon?
Me: Scream.

Small Girl: Mum, what would you do if the birds ate all your seeds before they grew?
Me: I’d scream but that won’t happen because we’ll mind the seeds inside until they are big, strong plants.

Small Girl: Mum, but what would you do if they didn’t grow?
Me: As long as we put them in the light and give them water (and answer all their questions!) they will grow.

Small Girl: But how do you know they will grow?
Me: I just know.

  1. Your small girl is adorable – the concentration in the first photo! It must be a joy to have a small person around. I love it when my 5-yr-old niece visits as she’s hilarious. My three are not so hilarious at the moment. X

    1. The small one serves to remind me that the big ones were once so sweet. The big ones serve to remind me that the small one won’t stay sweet for long…I just threw the whole lot of them out of the house with a loving ‘just get out of my sight and I don’t care WHEN ye come back’. sigh

  2. I remember those days. They did, sometimes, make you feel like screaming. And smiling. And weeping just from the sheer love and protectiveness. I’m sure your plants, like your children, will grow in love in the sunshine. 🙂
