While I was rummaging for my mascara, my ears pricked up when I suddenly realised Ava was chattering away to herself in English. This is a fairly rare occurrence when we are home alone, so I listened a little bit closer. The commentary went something like this...
"Don't go in the hall! Don't go in the hall! No running!"
*pauses for a moment*
"Here's the Bible, now we have a story...
One days (this is how she starts every story when she's playing "story-crèche") God for (??) people. And Jesus say I love you.
I love you.
*At this point she launches into a full blown rendition of "Jesus love is very wonderful" with a bit of accompanying splashing*
Once the song is finished, she stands up in the bath, looks at me and smiles...
"Fertig!" she announces (finished)
To all of you story crèche teachers? Thank you. The message is going in!
