This morning at breakfast
Tilly: If everyone in the world jumps on a jelly river will they go through it?
Me: Good question.
Tilly: You know that night…Kitty…this night…you know that sound that I was making?
Me: Last night, when you were sleeping?
Me: Uh huh.
Tilly: That was me dreaming about Kitty.
Me: I see.
Tilly: She was going down a jelly river. I thought she would fall through the jelly river, but she didn’t… I fell through a jelly river, but a pretend one…. I thought she fell through a real jelly river, but she didn’t. That’s lucky, isn’t it?
Me: Sure is.
Tilly: Can we make a jelly river one day? Not a real one or we might fall through it. Just one that is not too deep. Maybe one in a bucket. Can we do it today?
Me: I’m not sure, sweet. I’ll have to see if I can find a….recipe.
Tilly: Thanks, Papa.
Note: I was genuinely disappointed to discover no helpful results when I googled ‘how do you make a jelly river in a bucket’.
