"I going tell Mama a story," announced Nicholas this morning, clambering laboriously onto the bed beside me.
"Really?" I said. "All right, then, go ahead."
"Once 'pon a time, there was a camel. He opened door in a tree, went inside. He was in the woods." He paused fractionally. "He got scared."
"Oh, dear. What happened then?"
"Lots of animals came. They friends. His mommy and daddy came, took him home for supper."
"And what did they eat?"
"Cheese." Another thoughtful pause. "Noodles."
"Oh," I said.
"Then he went upstairs, played toys."
"Was he okay then?"
"Yes." A firm nod. "He was... he was happy."
"Is that the end of the story?"

Not a bad bit of storytelling, I'd say, for a just-turned-two-year-old...
