This month featuring two of my granddaughters.
First of all one of the 6 year olds:
“What does it say on this sweet wrapper, Grandma?”
“Eating too many of these will turn you purple.”
Grandad: “Eating too many of these will make you deaf.”
Two minutes later and in that tone of voice that makes you feel like an idiot. “I am not deaf, Grandad.”
And the 5 year old:
“Would you like to come to the beach with Dusty?”
“Yes. I will wear my pirate dress.”
“You should wear trousers.”
“But I want to wear my dress.”
“The wind might blow your dress over your head, then everyone will see your knickers.”
“No they won’t.” Long pause and that look they give you that makes you feel like an idiot. “I’m not wearing any.”
And here she is at the beach – in a full complement of clothes.
