Mushroom and I are talking about love and numbers one evening before bedtime.
Mushroom: I love you Mummy.
Me: I love you too. I love you so much.
Mushroom: How much? I love you to 10, 11, 12, 16, 18, 19!
Me: I love you much more than that.
Mushroom: How much? A really big number?
Me: Well, you can count forever, and we say ‘infinity’ to mean on and on and on…
Mushroom: Infinity? Like counting forever and ever and ever?
Me: Yes baby.
Mushroom: I’m not a baby!
Me: Ok. I know, you’re Mushroom. Mushroom, I love you infinity.
Mushroom: *smiles, excited* …and I love you to the other finity! The red one!
Mushroom: What colour is your finity Mummy?
