Conversations with Little Miss No. 3

[Sitting on the landing outside the bathroom.]

Mama: Shall we brush your teeth? 

LM: Yeh! 

Mama: [surprised] Oh! Good girl, let’s go then. 

LM: No. 

Mama: Oh. But you said you wanted to. 

LM: No.

Mama: You did. Why don’t you want to brush your teeth now?

LM: I need to go home.

Mama: …you are home…

LM: I need to go home. [runs and gets you suitcase]

Mama: Where do you think home is, Little Miss? 

LM: I need to go home.

Mama: But this is our home, Little Miss.

LM: I need to go home. I need to see Nina. 

Mama: Nina’s at her house, we’ll see her another day. 

LM: I see Nina. I need to see Nina. I need to go home. 

Mama: This is our home. Nina’s at her home… [starting to feel at a loss…]

It seems that Little Miss has become confused and ‘home’ means Nina house. Trying really hard not to be irrational and get upset by this… Trying really hard…
