Photo has nothing to do with the conversation but it makes me smile.
Conversation at bedtime:
Mumma, Mumma, I can take my top off all on my own. I am a very big girl now.
Yes you are.
Mumma, umm, today, at school, we have PE. All my children, they get dressed themselves. I can't do that, Mrs Skello, she helps me.
Yes, but, I can nearly do it. When I get a bit bigger, I can do it by myself. I am learning. I am clever, am I?
Oh, very clever! You're learning such a lot. And yes of course you'll be able to get dressed all by yourself when you're a bit bigger.
It will get a bit easier when I a bit bigger, will it? Can I? Can I?
Yes, you'll learn how to pull yourself up a bit more and then you'll be able to get your trousers on.
And then, when I a bit more bigger, I can walk too.
Well, no. You won't be able to do that.
Why I not learn to walk? I will be big girl?
Yes, you'll be a big girl, but your legs still won't work because we can't make your legs work. But you'll be even faster in your chair and maybe you'll be able to crawl too - you can nearly do that now can't you?
Mumma, Mumma? Why are you sad? You like a big cuggle now?
