and the kids that I work with are no exception.
Only five years old but full of wisdom - that was Ben when I told him to stop talking and get on with his work.
His immediate response was: "You're just like my Mum"
Upon enquiring why he said this, he answered brightly: "My Mum says that if I do not stop talking I will run out of words before I die."
I laughed at this remark and told him that she was quite right. But then he drew nearer and whispered that he knew just what to do to get over the problem informing me: "I speak my words into a bottle, then put my thumb over the top and swallow the words so that I can use them again."
What a wonderful story! Thanks for all your inspiring posts.
