I’ve always been quite impressed by people who can quote lines from movies or books. My husband expertly manages to filter them into everyday conversation. On a good day, this amuses me. At the wrong time, it drives me nuts! I’ve never been able to remember lines from movies or books. I have half a better hope with poetry. I just don’t seem to have that kind of memory. However, we have a new candidate in our house for remembering streams of conversation from movies. Our 2.5yr old daughter. Lately Little Miss has been quoting lines from the movie, ‘Frozen’. It started with randomly asking me if I’d like to build a snowman. But at 6:30am this morning she upped the ante. At this insane hour she stirred and asked if I was awake, to which she was greeted (rather grumpily) with me telling her that it was still early and time to sleep (I was in her room re-settling her brother as they sleep in the same room). To which she replied, “But the sun’s awake, so I’m awake, so it’s time to play.” Humph. I’d love to say I saw the humour in the situation, but I desperately wanted to go back to sleep. Everyone in our house has colds at the moment. Needless to say, I’m not getting much sleep. Clearly if my daughter intends on continuing this talent for quoting movies, she is going to need to learn comedic timing as well.
