thanate: (octopus)
Once again I seem to have managed to let not getting to the long thinky post I meant to make (and even outlined!) prevent me from posting anything else.

The Megatherium, little extrovert that she is, had a brief conversation with a slightly older girl (who happened to share a quite uncommon name with her best friend's mother) at the park today, and then loosely followed her around for the next hour, in that toddler manner of playing or veering off to do something else and then asking me, "Where is my friend?" & heading off to find her. Anyway, the other child was with a group of friends, siblings, & mothers, and so she didn't take particular note of the Megatherium until M gave her a small handful of buttercups and then wandered off again while Other Child was still telling everyone about the flowers.

Three minutes later, she passed the Megatherium again, and they had the following conversation.

Other Child: I know you! You're the one who gave me flowers!
Megatherium: Yes.
Other Child: Why did you give me flowers? [slight pause] Is it because you love me?
Megatherium: Yes! I love you.

...And this was the end of the interaction. M went back to climbing on a dinosaur, & the Other Child set her flowers down on a bench & forgot about them.

We have also reached the stage where cause & effect *almost* makes sense, so she'll run and hide where she can't see me before chewing on things she's not supposed to.
