Poor kids

Sometimes I think Thomas and I must discuss linguistics and semantics a little too much over the dinner table for the kids' good!

Tonight Anna hopped into bed and said 'soon I'll be fast asleep...' then she paused and came out with 'fast - now what exactly is the meaning of fast in this phrase, it's obviously nothing to do with speed, so does fast have some other meaning in this context?' OMG - she's only four, if she talks to the other kids in the school playground like that, they'll run a mile!

We've created a monster! ;-)
