Snippet #1…Tree hugging
Many of our ‘random conversations’ are had on the morning school run or over breakfast when we all manage to sit down together at the weekend….and usually end with one (or both parents) in tears!
One Saturday morning, C asked what a ‘tree hugger’ was – he had apparently heard it in school. We dutifully explained that it was not a nice name and shouldn’t be used in talking about lifestyle choices that other people make – we are all individual and unique (a recurring mantra!). The conversation continued….
C: “I hugged a tree once”
Ali: (stifling hysterics) “And how was it?”
C: “it was very round……”
Our recovery time was around 10 minutes….
