This not my tractor–a conversation with Joshua

This was the conversation we had with Joshua this morning:

Daddy: Right, let’s get you out of your cot.

Joshua: (Holds up dressing gown) This my rope.

Daddy: Your rope? Great.

Daddy lifts Joshua out of his cot. Joshua wanders through to the landing and speaks with Mummy. He’s holding his dressing gown and a dog cuddle toy.

Joshua: (Holds up dressing gown to show to Mummy) This my rope.

Mummy: Your rope?

Joshua: Yes. (Holds up Copper, the dog from Disney’s The Fox & the Hound). This not my tractor.

Mummy: (Laughs) It’s not your tractor. Ok, what is it?

Joshua: (Looks at Mummy like she’s mad) It Copper!

Mummy: Of course!

There’s never a dull moment in our house!
