Róisín has finished the main part of her dinner – eggs – and I ask her what she wants next.

“Oriv.”

We have no oranges, and I tell her so.

“Oriv.”

“Orange gone. Do you want apple or banana?”

“No appor. No nana. Oriv!”

“Gone!”

“Oriv!!”

“Gone!”

Back and forth few times. I start saying my response as soon as she says hers:

“Orivgoneorivgoneorivgoneorivgone!”

Peals of laughter from both of us.

We catch our breath. I go to the refrigerator and pull out an apple and a banana.

“How about this. You can have this orange,” I say, showing her the apple, “or this orange,” moving the banana forward.

She points at the apple.

“Appor.”

She looks me in the eye, grins and points at the banana.

“Oriv.”

    Young children provide us such delight with such simple things. They really are a blessing.
