Mental representation

"Mummy, what is beach mean?" asks Sophia, on our way to Sentosa on Sunday

"A beach is a place with waves and water", I explain

"patti'sh oush shimming pool waves shee"

"Thats right. its like patti's house swimming pool waves"

"Shopia aant to sit amma's lap shee waves patti' sh oushe shimming pool"



We went to the beach. Sophia began to cry

"No. aant to shim shimming pool patti's oushe waves shee"

Evidently, she was expecting some kind of pool and got surprised by all the sand. She did have a good time though.

Except when she ate some sand by accident and I had to take it out.
