The way kids see the world can be really unique.  The other day, on the way to the shops, we stopped at a red traffic light.  “Look Mum,” Birdy called out, excitedly.  “That traffic light matches your hair.”  It took me a while to realise what she was talking about.  “That traffic light is ‘reg’ and your hair is ‘reg’,” she patiently explained.  So my hair looks like a traffic light.  Thanks so much, dear.  

On the upside, Birdy has learnt a fantastic new phrase, taught to her by Daddy.  “You’re the best Mum in the world.” She likes the sound of this new sentence so much she says it over and over.  Warms me heart every time.
