18. Snappy Colours

Reading the Snappy Colours story, and we get to the purple bat, and Charlie says, ‘Have you ever slept upside down in a tree, Mummy?’ and I have to answer, honestly: ‘No.’ Then he gathers toys to ask. The poison dart frog, the little ceramic moose, the yellow digger. ‘Have you ever slept upside down in a tree?’ he asks them, one at a time, and I have to reply on their behalf, pick them up, bob them up and down in the air, put on a funny voice: ‘No. Have you?’ And Charlie says, ‘No, I haven’t,’ and explains to each of his toys in turn, pointing to his bare feet in pyjamas, ‘I can’t hook my feet over the branches, see?’

Charlie's use of logic astounds me!
