Amy: You are the best mum ever.
Me: Why do you say that honey?
Amy: Because you do the washing and make dinner and sometimes take the clothes off the line. Sometimes you even run my bath.
Amy: Mum, did you know six is an even number? Because it is three plus three.
Me: That's right.
Amy: And mum, did you know that nine is an odd number?
Me: How did you work that out? [since she hasn't been taught any maths per se and only knows about even numbers because they are something plus something when the something is the same]
Amy: I just did lots of thinking.
Amy: So if I ate all the lollies in that lolly bag I'd be so sick I'd have to go to the hostipal in an ambliance wouldn't I?
Me: The HOS-PIT-AL in an AMB-U-LANCE
Amy: OK! The hostopital in the amluliance then.
