Anne picked up Faith's book on basic driving theory, thumbed through it and came to a page with a diagram of a car with its parts labelled.
"Designing the car," she said.
I was flabbergasted that she used the word "designing". This girl definitely knew which words warmed my heart.
"What does designing mean?" I asked. She had probably heard me use the phrase when telling Faith about the day job.
"Designing means making it work properly," the little girl answered.
Super, jaw-dropping moment. My daughter knew more about design than many clients I've worked with and bosses I've worked for, whose design considerations didn't go much further than their favourite colour.
I allowed myself to hope, forgetting that she's all of three years old.
