a toddler's first nail polish

...about themselves.

especially her.

mum, she says as she twists my ponytail around and around her little hand. what do you think you're like?

I pause.

I think I'm pretty cool. what do you think you're like?

quick as a flash she says,

I think I'm pretty cool.

she's about to turn three. I know it's what all the old people say, but seriously. where has the time gone?

p.s 'a quote a week' coming up soon.
