Kat has this new love of listening to some audio book (current favourite being The Lightning Thief) – so as I was setting it up, adjusting the volume and generally fussing around, she looked at me and said: “Mummy, am I a half blood?”
Me (all I can see right now is Harry Potter smiling at me!): “What do you mean? Why do you ask?”
Kat: “No I was just wondering if I was part magical, maybe some Greek God or someone? I haven’t seen many pictures of my birth but Kit has so many. I’m so different from her.”
Me (thinking wizard is not so good but Greek God does not sound like a bad idea!): “Do you really think you belong to someone else Kat?”
Then she gives me that Kat smile from ear to ear and I tell her if I should send Papa to convince her whose child she is. (Papa is called the licky monster when he is in his kissing mode!) Kat giggles to sleep and I am left wondering if I should simply go to bed with my Greek God NOW!
