Mary, Mary, quite contrary, how does your garden grow? January 21, 2009

Posted by phoenixaeon in Conversations with Principessa.

The other night, just before switching the Myths of King Arthur audiobook on, Princi took hold of bedtime conversation.

Princi: Mummy, how do plants grow?

Me: They use a process called photosynthesis.

Princi: No-ho-ho-ho-ho, plants can’t take photos.

Then, the next morning while eating breakfast…

Princi: Mummy, what do spiders eat? Do they eat flies?

Me: Yes, they eat flies. And if they’re big enough they eat birds too.

Princi: No-ho-ho-ho-ho, spiders don’t eat birds. Spiders eat flies. What do snakes eat?

Me: Mice. And birds.

Princi: No-ho-ho-ho-ho, snakes don’t eat mice or birds.

As you can see, the giggly no has to figure in nearly all conversations, except for the ones where she knows the answers!
