Question 1 – What’s the tallest animal?
Imo hits the buzzer first and offers me “Giraffe”. Clara shouts, no Imo, it’s a Whale. I pause to think (knowing she may be technically right) IMO argues Giraffe and clara replies- No IMO, what if the whale stands on it’s head?
So that’s a point scored by each.
Question 2 – how many notes in an Octave?
Imogen asks me what an Octave is – I can’t really explain quickly so I choose to sing a scale. She looks puzzled then replies “Well… an Octopus has eight legs so… Eight?! Clara was left repeating the scale I sung, counting the notes on her fingers.
That’s when I realised that we are truly truly blessed having the responsibility of bringing up these two children. They dazzle and amaze me every single day. Thank you girls!
