When we reached home, JE asked me why I had to go to this dentist. I was mindful not to frighten her with horror stories (in truth I was shivering in my shoes in anticipation of the visit, and the bill!). So I told her this dentist is better than the one I usually go to. She said, "but so far!". I said I HAD to go to this one. She said, "but you can get lost.". I just said "never mind, should be ok" and went upstairs to put my stuff down.
A while later, I heard crying. Volume got louder as the 'cryer' came upstairs.
It was JE.
Me: Aww why are you crying?
Me: Did you fight with SE?
JE: No.... waaAAAA
Me: Then what happened?
JE: WaaAAAA I don't.. (sob).. I don't want Mummy... (sob) to get lost.... waaaaaAAAA
Me: Ohh you thought Mummy going to get lost forever?
JE: WaaAAAA then (sob) I have no more Mummy....
HAHAHAAAA the kiddo had taken my comment literally! Thought she was going to lose her Mummy.
Had to secretly wipe away my tears of mirth. I should be thankful that she was so distressed at the thought of losing me!
This mummy is laughing at me... hmmf
