The Innocence Of A Four Year Old…

There are certain things that children say that stop you in your tracks and make your heart break a little. Take tonight over dinner the conversation we had with Moo. She started it, she finished it, her tiny four year old brain finished it with one tiny sentence and it broke my heart…

mummy why have we not got stairs, you know like E, and K? W has stairs that go all the way up to his bedroom, why don’t I? I only have stairs that go up to my bunk bed at the top. I want stairs in my house

I was pretty stumped! I simply said we don’t live in a house and we live in a flat. Nanny and Granddad didn’t have stairs they live in a bungalow so it was not important to have stairs, with that came the reply of

Its boooorrrrriiiiinnnnngggggg having a flat, how about we call it a bungleflat instead (new word there!)

I agreed and carried on with eating dinner then the bombshell came…

If we had stairs mummy it would all be perfect… just perfect…

Yes my lovely if we had stairs it would indeed be perfect…
