  • Matilde: "Mommy, do you mind if I read you a story I wrote on my school diary?"
    Me: "Sure, is it a true story?"
    Matilde: "Yes, it is a love story. Let me find it....Here it is.. Mommy, would you also mind taking pictures of me while I am reading?”
    Me: “Why?”
    Matilde: “Because you can put me and my story on that place on the Internet..do you know…where you have also put the photo of our hands with that red heart..”
    Me: “Ah, yes…ok!"

    Matilde, reading out loud:
    "The Tale of Matilde and Samuele. Once upon a time, there was an enchanted kingdom, there lived a princess called Matilde and her sweetheart called Samuele. One day, they met and kissed. The End”

    Me: “You told me this is a true story, where was this enchanted kingdom located?”
    Matilde: “No, Mommy, the enchanted kingdom does not exist. But the characters of the story are real, it is me and Samuele.”
    Me: “I see…so do you love him?”
    Matilde did not watch the camera, I could see the answer to my question right there, on her beautiful smiling face..
