Because of school holidays, the old Furlong’s have been babysitting one particular grandchild.
She is very good at being entertained and also entertaining herself. This house has many interesting things in it, like collections of fossils, rocks, crystals, shells, Microscopes, computers, tablets, paintings, feathers, and stories from the ‘olden days’, science, history, philosophy and the like. And a dog.
I think she will remember days with us.
Whilst having a mini science lesson, or history lesson disguised as fun. Or analysing the movie we just watched on TV (usually a foreign film and not Disney), she has the habit of indicating she understands, or heard you, by saying “Uh huh” or “OK”.
It is comforting to know she is actually listening and may have got the point.
But then again, maybe not.
Her mummy has to do a lot of work at home because of Covid Lockdown so she is hearing conversations of her mummy at work.
Her mummy is a University Researcher. After she has posed a question to the person on the other end of the phone, and her mummy is listening to the outpourings being shared during the interview, her mummy says “Uh huh” and “Ok”
