The following is an actual conversation I had today:
The Setting: I am at Boat Landing, where one can find Pooh, Eeyore and Tigger. We are running a bit behind and normally Pooh will go off for some honey, followed shortly by Eeyore and then Tigger. Today though, Pooh has made it back from his snack before Eeyore and Tigger have left. As such, I have to make sure Eeyore leaves after his last family, and explain to the new family that he'll be right back. Please note, there are two families in this story, A and B.
Me: Okay, Eeyore, go grab some thistles real quick. Turning to girl 1 from Family A Sorry Princess, but Eeyore will be right back, okay?
Dad 1A: Oh okay, no problem. Proceeds to walk towards Tigger
Me: Actually, if I can just have you stay right here for Eeyore.
Dad 1A: Oh, we were just going to go see Tigger while we wait.
Me: Actually, Tigger is going to be leaving right after that family, too, but he'll be right back.
Child 1A: Tigger's leaving too?
Me: Yup! He's just going to get some cake real quick, and then he'll be back.
Child 2A: Cake?! I like cake!
Me: You do?! I like cake, too!
Child 1A: Pooh already left (she states, matter of factly)
Me: He did! You saw him leave, and waited for him, didn't you? He ate some honey and then he came right back.
Child 1A: Honey? I like honey!
Me: Me too. I put it in my tea sometimes. Which do you think you'd like better: Honey, Thistles or Cake?
Child 1 and 2A: Ummm.......
Child 1A: Honey! My mom gives me honey cause it's kind of like medicine. She gives it to me on a spoon sometimes. Look at my baby! It's a mere cat! And she has a baby fox! (points to Child 2A)
Child 2A literally puts baby fox about 2 inches from my face
Me: Those are really neat babies!
A wild Child 1B appears!
Child 1B: Look what I can do! Proceeds to hop on one foot across the set
Me: Look at you! You're hoping on one foot! Make sure you show that to Tigger when you see him!
Child 1B: ....Whaaaaa?
Me: Make sure to show Tigger how you bounce! Hey look, I can see Eeyore coming down the pathway!
Child 1A: I see him too! And Tigger!
About 4 minutes later, I look over to Tigger just in time to see Child 1B slooooooowwwwly hopping towards Tigger. Tigger looks down at him and then begins to hop in place, which causes Child 1B to explode in giggles. I go back to shooting my family at Eeyore.
