My 5 year old son came up to me the other day, clutching a 5 cent piece in each hand. With the most sincere look on his face he said 'Mummy I have far too much money - here you can have this!', handing me one of the 5 cent pieces. I didn't know whether to laugh or cry.
Then today the children were watching a video of Elli when she was about 6 months old. I was in the kitchen getting supper ready when I heard this little exchange - Elli said 'Look there's me and Daddy and Grandma'. Aleksi replied 'Yes and I was in Mummy's tummy'. Elli said back ' Oh no you were still just a star!'
I just love some of the fabulous things the children say, completely natural and innocent - priceless - leaving me with this overwhelming feeling of how lucky I am.
