Playing with butterflies, 2009
The "Weil ich bin ich" Littlie said something lovely today.
We had received unexpected visitors to the group just as we were starting and I had fogotten to prepare something that we needed.
I said "Oh dear, I am daft and old and forgetful". She shock her head and said loud and clear: "Nein!"
I asked "Nein what? Nein nicht doof? (not daft) Or nein not old and forgetful?"
With a cheeky grin she replied ,very clearly: "Nicht doof".
I then suggested: "But old". She smiled and told me "But not as old as Oma (Grandma), but older than Mama."
That’s a lot of words for someone who has to fight to get each one out. I think she knows how much I love her anecdotes and perhaps that motivates her to speak. She gets so excited because we understand her so quickly these days.
And how diplomatic she is!
A PPS (because I am me)
Of course this conversation was carried out entirely in German. Perhaps soon this may actually take place as reported above, as she has asked me to teach her English!
