Nathaniel (aged 5) and I spent a hilarious half hour playing on his Nintendo DS tonight. He's good, I'm hopeless, so what happens is that he does most of a 'level' and just as he's about to complete it he passes it to me and I get the flag! How sweet is that. We went upstairs shortly afterwards and he piped up :
"Mummy, if you're still alive I'll teach you how to get on to the next level on my Nintendo".
"Thanks" I said, "I sure hope I will be, shall we do it tomorrow? "
" Well I might not be alive either, because we do have lots of fires at school you know. We had one today and two people died!"
Turns out he'd had a fire drill for the first time. Goodness knows what his teacher had said!
