How was school today?
I get in from work at 7.30 pm tonight. It’s bedtime. I go upstairs to tuck Natan in.
Me: How was school today?
Me: What did you do?
Natan: Oh, the usual stuff.
Me: What’s the usual stuff?
Natan: Oh, you know…
Me: No, I don’t. That’s why I’m asking.
Natan: Just stuff. Lego. Writing my name. Do you want to know what I had for lunch?
Me: Yes, what did you have for lunch?
Natan: Carrots, potatoes, tuna, and gravy.
Me: Right, sounds lovely.
Natan: Yes, healthy lunch.
Me: Right. What did you have for pudding?
Natan: Some kind of crispy cake, but I didn’t like that so I didn’t eat it. It was yellow.
Natan: You wouldn’t have liked it either mummy.
Bedtime conversations. Priceless.
