I took the kids for a walk in the river valley. Imogen pretended to walk the tightrope on the line painted on the paved bicycle path.
Imogen: Remember Mirette on the Highwire? Was she fictitious or real?
Me: I don't remember, it's been a while since we read that book. I remember that the man who taught her was a real tightrope walker though.
Imogen: The Great Bellini!
Me: Yes, I think that was his name. We'll look up Mirette when we get home. You have such a good memory, Imogen!
Fast forward to bedtime. I am reading Imogen the 3rd book in the series The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place. We are on Chapter 12.
Me: blah blah blah Cassiopiea said blah blah...
Imogen, interrupting: Who is Cassiopiea?
Me: One of the three Incorrigible Children, the main characters in the series we have been reading.
Imogen: Oh, I forgot. You may proceed.
