Performance Art in the Shepherd Household

Gwen locked herself in her bedroom earlier while I was reading Molly her bedtime stories. She was gone for a long time and was awfully quiet. I was given strict instructions not to come in because "I am making a kind of stage performance."

She shouted through the door a little later and announced that the stage performance was ready. I opened the door to find this intricate display of lined-up dolls, teddies and cushions, The Snail in the middle of it all brushing her hair (she has recently discovered conditioner).

I wonder why she lay Fireman Sam horizontally?

In other snail-related news...

She found a book in her cousin's house called 'God Made Me'. She asked me what the book was called, I told her. She declared: "Who's God? Dog Made ME." Spot the heathen child.

She has also made up her first joke.

What do you call a man with a bag on his head?

There's definitely some sort of surrealist streak to the Gwenster.

    hee hee! We get jokes like that from Edie! Knock Knock. Who's there? Banana. Banana who? Banana nose. Or Why did the chicken cross the road? To eat a frube. She also hates me telling the 'what's brown and sticky' joke. Apparently not funny at all as "sticks are not sticky mummy unless a dog has wee'd on it." xx
