Small talks with Hanna

942081_10151754778020429_477598083_n

Hanna is surprising me more and more, with her comments, questions and answers. This is probably super typical for every mother, but since by our blog you already know our points of view on some topics – you can also get Hanna’s. She is the ¼ of The Family Without Borders, isn’t she?

***

– How are you today, my sweet girl?
– Fine, mummy.
– Why fine?
– Why not?

***

– What do you think, what for is a husband?
– For a lot of hugging. And that when you are sad, he will help you, because he loves you and he knows you.

***

– What do you like doing the most?
– Biking, and going on the trips.
– Where to?
– The most? To Warsaw, to grandmother Ula!
– How do you like to go there?
– By train.
– Why do you like the train more than car or bus?
– Because I can talk with more people! But… in the car we can loudly sing!
– What songs do you like?
– I like „Deszcz, pada deszcz“ (Anna: such a song that it doesn’t matter that it’s raining, I liked it too, until the rainy, lazy day, when Hanna wanted to go out, and I told her: hmmm, it’s raining, maybe not? And she.. sang me the song and I had no arguments left…). And I like „Pippi Longstocking“, because Pippi is cool. But the most I like our Karol. (Anna: „our“ Karol is Karol from the very nice Polish band Paula and Karol, the band was sleeping at our place few times and Hanna is absolutely in love with Karol)

***

– What is your favourite food?
– Mango lassi!! And when papa makes eggs. And the salmon casserole.
– Why the casserole??
– Because I can do it with you, mummy.

***

– Do you like when we are having visitors?
– Yes!!
– Why so?
– Because then in the morning, when mama and papa are sleeping, they are playing with me.
– And do you like when they are staying in our room?
– Yes, because when I just wake up I see if they are also awake.
– What do you think when you see somebody sleeping in our room?
– That maybe it’s.. Karol!

***

– What do girls play in the kindergarten?
– The fire brigade. And Indians. And we were painting yesterday.
– And what do boys play?
– How?
– Girls play fire brigade, Indians, they are painting. And boys?
– What do you mean?
– What do the boys do in the kindergarten?
– Mummy, the same as we, of course.

***

– Which language do you dream in?
– What is a language?
– The way we are speaking. With me you are speaking one language: Polish, with papa another language: German, and mama and papa are speaking English with each other.
– I see.
– So what language do you dream in?
– No idea, mummy.

***

– Do you like travelling with your parents?
– Yes.
– Why?
– Travelling is nice. And I love you.

***

– Which animals do you like the most?
– Monkeys, because they are funny. And pink flamingoes, because they are beautiful. And lions, because they make: uuuuaaaaa!

***

– Who is you best friend?
– Selma (a girls from kindergarten). And Mila. And Natalie, Rui and Pan (our flatmates). And Tymuś (boyfriend of one of the guys living with us).

***

– Do you have secrets?
– Yes.
– Will you tell me your secret?
– Yes. I would like to have a tattoo.
(Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!)

***

– What is your perfect day?
– With Mila, mama and papa.
– And what do we do then?
– We are together.

***

I asked all those questions not at once but still, in some point, she got tired and bored – Mummy, why are you asking so much today? – she asked.

So I will still post you my favourite stories and quotes from the past:
***

„Looking for two same socks is a… waste of time. In this time you can for example give somebody a kiss”

***

– You know mummy, all the boys in kindergarten want to see my vagina. – Ahaaa? – I tried to be serious. – And? – I will show! When I will really want! But now I don’t want to.

***

I think our Hanna has an idea of couchsurfing in her blood. Today in the morning she looked into the room of our flatmate (he left for few weeks holidays) and commented: – Hey, can’t be so empty, mummy, tell somebody to come and sleep here!

***

This day. When your girl is buying her first PINK thing… We went to the shop, from all the shoes she chosen those ones. I looked at her (look: “ohhhhh NOOOO!”), she smiled: – You told me I have a choice? So this is my choice! – But during the walk to the cashier she tried to cheer me up. – You know, mummy? I have this idea. I will take a blue marker and paint some blue points on those shoes…

***

In the morning girls were jumping on me, trying to wake me up. Then I’ve got dozen of kisses. – Hmmm, real princesses are waking up after the kiss – says Hanna. – Mila, you know what? I think our mama is not a real princess.

***

Kindergarten story #1: – You know, mummy, we have a new lady in the kindergarten – says Hanna (3,5). – So how is she? – I think nice, because she has a red shirt – silence, silence, silence. – And I think very cool, because her nails are painted red.

***

Kindergarten story #2: – And this new lady, mummy, I think she doesn’t like me – says Hanna after some time. – But why, Hanna?! – Hmmm… She doesn’t know me yet.

***

At last but not least, just for Poles:

Kiedyś siedziałam z Hanią, a ona wypytywała mnie, co to jest ta Polska, te Niemcy, kto jest kto itd. Myślała, myślała, aż w końcu popatrzyła rezolutnie: – Mummy, to ty jesteś Matka Polka!!

    Fajne :). Też się podzielę… Mam dwie córki w podobnym wieku, co wasze… ostatnio starsza mnie zapytała, “Mamusiu, a kochasz mnie?”. “Ależ oczywiście kochanie, wiesz, mam takie duże serce, w którym jest wystarczająco dla Ciebie i Nelci”, ” A dla tatusia też?”…. :)
