'Going to “Pork”.'

"Where are you going Charlie?"
“I’m going to Pork.”
“Oh I love Pork! It is my favourite place to go!  You have to be fancy to go there. You need high heels, scarves and purses.  Come on Charlie let’s go to Pork and dance!”

Jeans. A conversation with a 5 year old.

Daddy can you wear jeans tomorrow?

No. I can only wear jeans on Friday. My work says so.

Well why not?

Because. That’s just the rules when you work some places.

Well that’s no fair. When I grow up I’m going to work somewhere that I can wear jeans and there are no rules. What kind of work let’s you wear jeans and no rules?

I haven’t found one yet. Maybe if you are your own boss you can make the rules.

When I grow up I’m gonna be my own boss and tell people they can wear jeans whenever they want.

Good plan.

My toys live in China and hawks eat puppies there. If you bring a puppy to China a hawk just comes and takes it to its nest. (cue daddy laughing). Daddy it’s not funny. It’s true!
My daughter, 4 years old, explaining how hawks operate in China?!?!?

Daddy, you just can’t forget ok? You have to keep it in your head. It keeps falling out of your head so that is way you can’t remember. Mommy never forgets; well maybe she does sometimes, but just keep it in your head ok?
My daughter, 4 years old. Reminding me to make her some paper crowns in the morning.
