"Look Mummy! I did a picture!"
"oh, thats sweet...er, what is it?"
"I wanted it to be a cat..but now it doesn't look like a cat. I don't like it anymore."
She slammed the pen down onto the table and started to sulk.
"Well, maybe it could be a jellyfish with whiskers?" I suggested.
"No...its a jellyfish cat, thats OK."
Later on she limped up to me in the kitchen. "Mummy I got that funny thing on my foot."
"What funny thing?" I asked looking at her foot which seemed completely normal, small , tanned and a little grubby.
"Um, I got noodles and poodles on my foot."
"Huh? Oh, you mean pins and needles?"
"How do I make them go away?"
"Wiggle your foot a lot."
So she lay upside down on the sofa for a while, wriggling and kicking, shouting out "go away noodles and poodles! Go away!!" Sure enough, they went and she was cured.
