With 4 children under 10, and more books in the house than the average library, it’s inevitable that I get asked ‘what does this word mean Mummy?’ on a multiple daily basis.
My 7 year old is a real bookworm and will read anything, anywhere.
Trips to the library mean that he’s read the bulk of the book in the car on the way home.
However, no-one ever told me I’d become a walking, talking thesaurus when I became a mother…
And no-one ever told me that my brain power would be challenged on a daily basis.
‘What does triumph mean’
That was harder than expected to explain! I think we take our knowledge for granted, forgetting that we probably challenged our own mothers in a similar way when we were sponge-like children.
Anyone else had a random question of the day from their child?
