Ella seemed a bit unwell today but wanted to go to school. So I tried to spur her on to get all her stuff together. She walked back into the bedroom after a fruitless expedition to find her shoes:

Ella – [quivering lip, close to tears] Mum! Why didn’t you answer my question?
Me – Because I didn’t hear you at all.
Ella – [starts crying quite dramatically] And now [sob] I can’t [sob] remember what [sob] the question was [sob, sob, sob].

She cried even harder when I burst out laughing.

I decided to keep her home from school until she’s feeling less fragile.
