Syd’s pre-school have been talking about what they want to be when they grow up, they even have to dress up as their chosen thing in a couple of weeks. Syd’s answer currently is ‘a blue Pikmin’.
For the uninitiated a Pikmin is a small character, that comes in various colours, from a video game that his brother plays. Nice to have an ambition, although I am baffled as to how to make the costume. He very sweetly keeps asking me what I want to be when I grow up. I am not sure whether to be flattered that he thinks I am so young, or panicked that even at two he can see through my façade and figure out that I am not a proper grown up yet.
