Mal : ‘Mummy, I want to be a penguin‘
pause & think
Mal : ‘I want YOU and DADDY to be penguins‘
pause & think again
Mal : ‘I want yeeyee, jiujiu, popo and EVERYONE to be penguins !!!’
Mal : ‘So we can dance like them,
swim like them
and do SYNCHRONIZED turns like them !’
Mummy : ‘But penguins live in VERY COLD places you know ?!’
Mal : ‘It’s ok, then I can live in Manitoba like the polar bears !
And you should have seen us dance like the penguins.
Ain’t they cute !!!
