In the car today (am I the only one who has the best conversations with my children when in the car?), I listened to Sophie and her friend (we’ll call her “A”), chatting:
A: What’s your biggest fear?
S: To be forgotten.
Me: To be forgotten? Like when we go on vacation? Like Home Alone?
S: No. That everyone in the world will forget I was ever here.
Me: . . . um, okay . . . (really, what is one to say to that??)
A: I meant something like spiders.
S: Oh, I’m not scared of spiders.
