I had an interesting discussion with child 3 after picking him up from preschool on Wednesday. He had had a lovely day, doing lots of making - including rockets and a flying saucer.
Child 3: We watched a film about flying saucers
Me: Really? That's sounds very interesting.
Child 3: They make them in Africa
Me: I didn't know that!
Child 3: Except for the blue bits. The Aliens make those.
Me: Mmm. So why do the Aliens make the blue bits?
Child 3: Because the blue bits will kill you.
I still don't know what the blue bits are exactly.......or why flying saucers are made in Africa.
