WTF is wrong with him? I thought all children had this conversation:

Mum: How was your day?
Kid: Fine.
Mum: What did you do?
Kid: Nothing.

But I get loads of stories!

Well, he's been telling me about him getting in trouble for not listening, and there was a girl who was crying but a boy helped her, he knew it was a boy because of his hair, but he doesn't know his name, and they went on a nature walk, and there's a playground, and you can only go there when you're 6 or 5 or 7, so when he's 7 or 5 or 6, he has to go there, and his little brother <wanders off into long discussion about his imaginary little brother and his plans to kill all women and girls ... which is a whole other festival of WTF>

oh my dd is the same as your ds.

two girls were fighting to be her friend today again. she told them they all had to play togther. she told her teacher that she was going to dancing again and the teacher said she danced when she was a little girl dd didnt know the teacher used to be a little girl. she had tomatos and chips and something else for lunch and cake after that. at playtime she ran and she has learned about ola and gracias.

and it was all said like that at 100 mph with no pauses for breath but much more embillishment.

my dd came home and said, I played houses today with x and x but our house burnt down so x got all our toys out cause she was the mum and the baby just screamed but then the new house leader took us to the new house. hmm

We always get full long complete sagas and always have.

ds1 is now 11 and has started secondary, but still comes home and tells me about every lesson, every teacher, unusual happenings, what he did at breaktime, what he had for lunch ... hmm

I think thats lovely!

Todays conversation

ME: Did you have a good day at school ?
DS: Yes
ME: What did you do?
DS: Everything

Was better than yesterday when I had the same converation except with the ending "nothing"

(note to self must start asking open ended questions)

When dd first started school I used to get lovely stories about what they were doing. I was really impressed, one day they had rabbits in the classroom! The next day, puppies. Pink and purple hmm

So I'm still not sure what she actually did, and after a few weeks she worked out she was just supposed to say 'fine. humph'.

Oh, yes, DS1 used to tell me fascinating made up things.

Now he just tells me gossip, all about various couples at school kissing or snogging or whatever. He's in year 1.
