Conversations with my children - part 1

  • Getting into the car after school the other day a little boy shouted hello to my 4 year old son Henry. The little boy was waving enthusiastically. Me – “Who’s that Henry?” Henry – “He’s my friend.” Me – “That’s nice. What’s his name?” Henry – “I don’t know.” Me – “Is he in your class?” Henry – “No.” Me – “Who’s class is he in?” Henry – “I don’t know.” Me – “Oh, ok. So you just play with him in the playground?” Henry – “No.” Me – “Oh. So where have you seen him?” Henry – “I don’t know.” Me – “Have you ever seen him before?” Henry – “No.” Me – “Oh. Right. But he’s your friend?” Henry – “Yes.” Me – “That’s nice.”
