100 THINGS CHALLENGE 011/100


Today´s quote is from a Book.

A very well loved Childrens book; Astrid Lingren: Pippi Longstocking.




At one point Pippi is having a birthday party and have invited Tommy and Annika. They have a great time, but when evening comes Pippi says the words”

“If you don't go home you can't very well come back, and that would be a shame.“


Tommy, Pippi and Annika

I use this a lot when Sarah and Thea are here, an thought I had to use it today.
My Bro dropped them off around noon and picked them up 4.00pm.


Thea, especially, gets clingy and sort of sad and whiny, when they have to leave.
So some time ago, I told her what Pippi said about the topic, as she knows Pippi.
She could see the logic in leaving to be able to get back, so I use it every time they are here.


When my Bro arrived today, Thea opened the door, ran into the living room and into my lap, grapped my face and said; “Yes Aunty Annette, I DO know what Pippi says!”

Then she slipped off and starting chatting to her dad about what we had done today;)





So...I guess this quote worked;)

That's an awesome quote! It's been years since I've seen the movie, but I remember liking it!

I love that quote, there are so much wisdom in books.
I´ve seen the movies recently, as Thea is very into Pippi right now, and kidnaps me to her room when I am visiting, so she can spend time with me alone;) Then we watch movies..

Jeg elsker hvordan alle dine quotes er en del af dit sprog, du bruger dem så de er levende.
Pippi er en fantastisk figur, med megen visdom.
Den der med at når man er meget stærk, så er det vigtigt at man osse er meget rar, synes jeg er fantastisk. :)

kram
