One of my favourite things is when my kids are playing imaginatively together, lost in their world, happily creating adventures together…. But why, WHY, do they need to start every flipping sentence with “pretend..”?!? When they are in full flow they talk non-stop and all you hear is pretendpretendpretendpretend, and all in the exact same singsongy intonation.. It leaves me and hub baffled and bemused – as if it isn’t clear to them they are in a make- believe world of their own creating?
