Littletree started reciting lines from a cartoon she’s been watching, Charlie and Lola.
She’s got all the lines down pat, accents and all. So accurately that at first, I thought she was watching the cartoon!
At first I might jump on the thought that she watches Charlie and Lola too much, but the reality is that she doesn’t watch it all that often, and I myself have a tendency to memorise quotes from films after only one or two viewings. Then I sit around for hours with my friends quoting and reciting endless quotes from Monty Python or The Princess Bride.
Littletree got the idea that perhaps since she’s so good at doing voices she could be an actor in movies. We talked a bit about what that entails; as soon as I mentioned having to always do exactly what the director says, she changed her mind!
Still, it’s a useful skill to have :)
