Keelan and I were enjoying a picnic in the sunshine yesterday when Saoirse arrived outside with her shopping trolley.
"I can't find Strawberry Mama"
"She's on your bed Saoirse" I replied, knowing full well a mini child tornado had already ripped through her room.
"I can't find her" she said.
I chuckled "Yeah you can't see the forest for the trees."
She looked at me intensely and then stared out over the garden and beyond with a puzzled yet searching gaze.
Keelan and I assumed our feast and soaking up some rays when after a while Saoirse chirped up from where she had become cemented "I can see the forest Mama."
We cracked up.
Priceless. Funny. Brilliant innocence
