Sorry, which shop ?

The following conversation was recorded between an exhausted mother and her curious child. Names have been changed to protect the identities of those concerned.

Petal : Mummy ?
Mama : Yes Petal.
Petal: When I become a growed up, can I have a car ?
Mama : Yes, I suppose so.
Petal : Can you show me where the car shop is ?
Mama : Yes, I can take you to the car shop.
Petal : What about the key shop ?
Mama : Which key shop ?
Petal : The key shop, where you buy the keys to start the car.
Le Artiste : That's right next to the car shop silly.
Mama: Urm.....
Petal : Is it near the hairdryer shop or the animal shop ? Mummy, can you show me where the hairdryer shop is ?
Mama : Urm......

I'm thinking that Petal would be a perfect candidate for a navigation system and I for one will be very interested to see what pops up when she lists 'directions to car key shop.'


  1. heheh too cute!! I'd like to take a trip to the hairdryer shop please!

  2. Oh yes Bec, but I think there would be an overwhelming variety of hairdryers to choose from.


Please feel free to leave a few words, I love to know what you're thinking.
