A budding novellist perhaps?

And before you're thinking it's me - the newest blogger with a book deal... think again!

Last week her teacher waved at me at home-time asking me for a minute.  'Sure'  I waited.   'Does Laura wear glasses?' she asked.

I was confused: 'No... she doesn't...' and suspiciously: 'Why?'

'Oh she mentioned today she couldn't concentrate because she left her glasses at home'..

Hmmmm.  Her eyesight is fine.  Little trickster!  She has has always had an active imagination...

Then last night at parent information night 'I don't suppose Laura is going to Dreamland with her Nanny without you and the other girls right?'

'Yes, that's right, nothing planned like that'  we laughed - Laura's teacher is in for an entertaining year - that's for sure - this talent for 'story-telling' may bring her fame and riches - for the time being it's giving me giggles and some thinking to do on how to allow her to have her imagination without 'stretching the truth'.

Can't wait 'til she can write - she's going to write amazing stories!  I think I might even take dictation from her.....?  If only for posterity!

Do or did any of your little ones have a hilarious or runaway imagination? Or was it you?

Did you watch that Life at 5 last night? It was saying that next week they will be talking about the fact that kids who tell white lies are actually very advanced! So there you go :)

Both of my boys tell taller stories than I could ever have imagined. Watch this space!

i was about to say the same as Christie :)

thankfully (IMO) the girls have both inherited my imagination - the downside of which comes from the lack of sleep (those with over active imaginations tend not to sleep as our brains can't slow down the thoughts enough)but the upside is the things you say leave you in stitches.

like you we're working on telling stories v lying, i know kids will lie at some point but we are trying to avoid the full blown lies some kids can get into.

Love children's imagination. They see the world in such a unique way. My girls constantly amaze me. For example, the other night we had "cheese "envelopes" for dinner. Actually, it was "omlettes". :)

Ask her to tell you some of her stories on video, I have done this with Amy and its a wonderful record!

The little boy I was nanny for explained to me that babies come out of your bottom, er like poo... Not sure if he misunderstood his mummy explaining it to him but decided it best not to go there!

@Super Sarah

What a fantastic idea! Mine don't tend to tell stories as such, they they often talk in the morning about their dreams in a very elaborate way. Must put our little Flip camera on a tripod on the kitchen bench.
