I adore how our two play make believe games at the moment. They spent most of the day being "gloria and ruby" (a hippo and bunny), playing "doggie school" and later in the backyard it was "mr mcdonald and kid".
It was an almost balmy 15'C (pretty good for midwinter!) and so we enjoyed being outside, no hats or jerseys required. Our wee lemon tree is doing really well and after snapping picturtes of the lemon harvest I left them to it. We're going to make some lemon squash and some lemon muffins. Yummy!
While I was downloading the photos I could hear them chatting away... so funny I had to transcribe a few snippets. I wasn't sure what the game was at first but it soon became evident that it was something to do with McDonalds (a place that we don't go, have you ever watched Super Size Me?). I try pretty hard to avoid too many chemicals in what we eat and so avoid articifical colours as much as possible too (hence the comment about the food colouring drink).
The game went a little like this...
let's hop in the minivan and drive to the cafe
can i have a sandwich please?
we don't serve sandwiches
but we do serve fatty sandwiches
all the people who come here eat fatty sandwiches
is that chewing gum? i've never had chewing gum or bubble gum.
can i take my bag of fatty food and chewing gum and can i get a food colouing drink too?
