I said in my opening first blog that I wanted this to be a family affair – I want the kids to blog along with me, this is as much a record of their ‘Daly’ thoughts, feelings, happiness, challenges as it is mine. Natalie has been intrigued when I’ve talked about blogging, and tonight she decided she wanted to join in.
To make it easy (for me as much her!), we just chatted about the weekend, what is written below are her words entirely, no paraphrasing, no adult slant – totally 100% 6yr old magic
Me – Natalie, do you want to blog about what you did at the weekend? We can write down the things you remember
Nat – Yeah, thats easy. Grandma was here so we baked scones. She said they were the best ever, they were too. Oh, and on Sunday we went to visit our new house. I get my own room and everything. I asked the lady if I could buy the house and how much it was. I said that I have £95, it says so in my bank book, but I told her I didn’t want to spend it all, I want to keep some, maybe a pound for sweets. I’ll share the sweets with Jessica.
She thought that was funny. The lady had fishes and they were in a in a tank that changed colour, I hope she leaves them for us when we move in.
Me – What else did you do at the weekend
Nat – We went to our new church and I made new friends. It was fun but weird, the same but different. I want to go again this week and go to the wacky warehouse again afterwards. The giant cookie we had there was yum yum in my tum.
If we move, I will go to a new school – how will people know my name? Will someone tell me where to go? What will I do about lunch, the school dinners might not be as nice as my school now, does that mean I can take sandwiches. If I am taking sandwiches can I choose what goes in them – ham and cucumber but no tomatoes.
With her thoughts on food (which is where Natalie’s thoughts usually are) off she went. Interesting to see in our short chat things that are on her mind, school obviously features heavily, as well as icecream, sweets and ham with cucumber sandwiches – classic Natalie!
