So… I’ve literally just read The Girl a bedtime story and shortly after she decided she wanted to have a conversation with me.
I shit you not, this is how it went:
The Girl: D’you know Mummy, I am you and you are me?
Me: Really? Why’s that then?
The Girl: Nanny said so.
Me: Uh-huh and why did she say that?
The Girl: Because when I ask her who am I she say’s I am you.
Me: That’s not true. Did you tell her you have the name Bridget because I found you under a bridge?
The Girl: *laughing* NO YOU DIDN’T!
Me: Well where do you think you came from?
The Girl: *whispers* God.
Me: Do you?
The Girl: No *hysterical laughing*. You made me. Not God.
Me: Did I?
The Girl: Yeah. Not God. I don’t believe in God.
Me: *gigles* I did make you, yes. But you don’t believe in God?
The Girl: Nope. Or Jesus.
Me: If you don’t believe in God and you don’t believe in Jesus… what do you think about the Bible?
The Girl: *more hysterical laughing* Come on Mummy….. it’s just a silly story book!!!!
Me: *open mouthed*
For the record, The Girl attends a Catholic Primary School so for any parents concerned that it might brainwash your child, don’t. Mine doesn’t believe a word of it !
