This weekend I got to have the following conversation with Fiona.
“We’re going to be doing a lot of travelling soon, Kiddo,” I said, trying to lessen the blow of having to leave the hotel pool.
She got really excited, jumping into my lap in the hot tub. “Really, Mommy? Like time travel? I want to see dinosaurs!”
I was silenced and sat blinking at her.
“Erm, no.” I said slowly and slightly strangled. “We’re going to go on a long car trip to see family.”
“Oh.” She frowned just a little. “Okay. That sounds fun too.”
