LMI loves playing pretend games. We think it's funny. She'll assign names and voices to her toy animals and dolls and then have imaginary conversations between them.
On Saturday I needed to go shopping for a new bra (oo-er, missus). I had the girls with me. We parked the car and walked through the car park into Nordstorm (a department store). No sooner were through the door then LMI made a beeline for the nearest arrangement of store dummies (mannequins) and started up an imaginary conversation between them...
"Hello, what's your name?"
"I'm Oviya, what's yours?
"I'm your Mummy, my name is Tamsin"
I didn't wait to hear any more; and I frog marched her off before anyone thought she needed locking up.
