Conversation today between myself and my 4-year-old granddaughter.
Emily: Look Grandad, I've drawn you a picture!
Me: That's very nice Emily. Is that me on my boat?
Me: It's very good. That's the water at the bottom?
Me: And then that's me on the boat, and the sails at the top?
Me: How many sails does my boat have?
Me: OK. And I like the pattern you drew on this sail.
Emily: Yes, it's a star! Grandma told me you have a star on your sail.
Me: That's right. But why do I have six fingers on one hand?
Emily: Don't be silly Grandad. You only have five fingers. That other line is the rope you hold when you are sailing.
I think she may be a bit confused about what a Laser actually looks like but I think it's a good attempt purely from imagination. But then I'm biased.
Her uncle and aunt bought her a child's digital camera for Xmas so perhaps in the summer I will be posting photos she takes of me and my boat. For now, here is a photo I took of her taking a photo of me taking a photo of her...
