We were on our way to Pirongia today, for a mainly outdoor event, and it was raining - not hard but steadily. Suddenly Ember pipes up:
Em: Is it raining Mummy?
Em: It's raining? Is it raining Mummy?
Em: It is? It's raining. It's raining Mummy? Is it? Is it raining?
Em: Beep beep. I'm pushing the button Mummy. Beep.
Me: What button?
Em: The rain go away button. It got writing on it. Look. It say "GO AWAY RAIN!" It say "No rain, go away"
Me: Oh good. You better push the button lots then.
Em: Yes, I do. Beep. Beep beep beep bee-bee-beep beep beep beep beep.
Me: Is it working?
Em: Yes, look you got to say "Go away rain, you got fire on you". (pause) Say it Mummy. Say "Go away rain, you got fire on you.
Me: Go away rain you've got fire on you.
Em: Good girl Mummy. Good girl to say "Go away rain." Beep beep beep beep. Look, the rain got fire on it. Look Daddy.
Em: You got to say "You got fire on you rain." Say it Daddy. (pause) Simon! Simon! Say "You got fire on you rain."
Si: You've got fire on you rain.
Em: Beep beep beep beep beep.Yes, look, it's working! Toosh! (that's her telling off noise). The rain got fire on it, it's all gone now.
Unfortunately the rain button didn't work today, but we had a good time in Pirongia anyway, and the downpour did hold off till we were leaving, so perhaps it did have some effect. :)
