Going asleep this evening
Me: I love you
Bodhi: I luv you, too!
Me: You're so sweet
Bodhi, hands on my face: No, you're sweet, sweet mama.
Aw! For god's sake, right?
On Harry Potter - Olivia and I are reading book 2 - we get to the bit where Dumbledore asks Harry if there's anything he wants to tell him. Harry thinks through the several significant issues he could do with help on, including the scary vicious disembodied voice he hears hissing about the cruel death it wants to mete out, but says 'No, Professor'.
Olivia, earnestly and with conviction: He should just tell him! If he just told him ALL of those things then Dmbledore would help and it would all be ok.
Me: Yes!! Thank you! I've ALWAYS thought that, and it really frustrates me, in every book Harry thinks he shouldn't tell even though he wants to, and it always seems like it would be the right thing to do.
Olivia: But it's for the story. If he told Dumbledore those things, than everything would be fixed really quickly and there wouldn't be a story and it would be boring. There has to be an adventure.
Me: my daughter is a genius
Bodhi on finding his Iggle Piggle doll: Look! Harry Piggle!
There's been a lot of Harry Potter round in our house recently (especially since I got the first dvd for a euro at a boot sale a while back). I love the idea of Harry Piggle though. Add a lightning scar and glasses and you've got instant Harry Piggle and The Garden Of Night.
Harry Potter and In the Night Garden crossovers. I love it.
* I just noticed I wrote cd, instead of dvd before. Who am I, my mother in law?
