Yesterday I sat on the couch with Ava Scarlett flipping through picture books with her, when Favourite Colour came on. She like this song a lot, the hip little girl does. So does her mum. (There’s no real video to watch… just ear candy.)
Me: *sidelong glance* What’s your favourite colour, miss?
She: *without missing a beat* Pink. And yellow.
Me: Yellow, too? Hmmmm!
She: And orange.
She: And green. And greenish-blue.
She: Oh, and puuuuurple. *eyes roll upwards* I just love purple. And blue. Like, light blue.
She: And navy blue.
She: And red. I just looooove red… *swoons*
Me: Ava Scarlett!! *put hand up to gesture STOP* Do you know what favourite means?
She: Yeah. Favourite, like your favourite thing. The best one.
Me: Yes, that’s right… but you just named ALL the colours.
She: Not all. I didn’t say them all.
Me: Didn’t you? Well, you’re supposed to choose just one colour, not the whole rainbow.
She: *looks at me like I’m a plain idiot* But I like the whole rainbow. *fans fingers in semicircle fashion*
Me: *busts out laughing*
She: *smiles* Which one is your favourite colour?
Me: *shakes head* I can never choose… I like the whole rainbow too.
So, tell me what’s YOUR favourite colour, hmmmmm?!
