Yesterday I took the kids with me to spend the morning with my friend and her 4-year old daughter. The little girl, who has developed a mutual fondness for my two, calls them her 'cousins' and 'you fellas'.
Late last night, as I was tucking Robert up for the night, he said to me, "Maori have big voices. She has a big Maori voice."
After further reflection he said, "White people have voices like bands with no bass or drums."
I was very taken with his observation.
