A recent conversation in our household.
Me: It’s going to be so strange when Melodie moves out next month and I am living with only boys.
Pip: Why would that bother you?
Me: I’ve never lived with just boys before. I like the company of girls. They notice stuff.
Pip: What do you mean that girls notice stuff?
Me: Well, if you get a new shirt, or have a haircut. A girl would notice and make a comment.
Me: And if you feel sad or mad, but you don’t really want to say anything. A girl would notice that too and ask you what’s wrong.
Pip: Do I notice stuff?
Me: Not usually.
Pip: Does Ashleigh notice stuff?
Me: Always. Ashleigh is very perceptive.
Pip: Ok then. I’ll try really hard to notice stuff from now on. Is that a new shirt?
Pip: It’s a nice one.
