As I was clearing up the lunch things in the dining room today I was watching Tom playing with his cars in the family room. I overheard him begin a new game with:
"Once upon a time there was a great boy named Tom..."
Modesty obviously not being a characteristic trait of the under-fours! I'd love to know how the story panned out, but unfortunately he then started talking too quietly for me to hear. I expect it was an epic tale of adventure, daring do and "I going back to my car" (the most common phrase I overhear when he is playing cars).
