On my way to school with monkey this morning we were chatting about some of the questions Id asked her the day before about daddy bookandbed. Namely what he did for a job. Trying to explain just what a Technical Design Architect who works from the bedroom is to a 3.5 year was always going to be tricky.
Soon conversation moved onto what mummy does which was suspiciously easy: mummy helps teach grown ups how to do things on the computer. Kind of.
Monkeyface: mummy, are you a teacher?
Me: err kind of
Monkeyface: mummy, do you just teach grown ups?
MF: ooow, don’t you teach children?
Me: no darling
MF: ooow, but I wanted you to teach me how to read books… Will you teach me how to read books when we get home
