I’ve just picked up my daughter from nursery and, as we head across the car park to pick up her brother, she puts a question to me.

 

‘Daddy?’

 

‘Yes?’

 

‘Can I have a lolly when we get home?’

 

‘Yes. En Francais? Ce’st une sucette’

 

‘I want a lolly’

 

‘Oui, mai en Francais ce’st une sucette’

 

‘I want a lolly’

 

‘En Francais ‘j’voudrais une sucette’

 

Talking to me as one would to someone who is hard of hearing/foreign/stupid

 

‘I’

 

‘Want’

 

‘A’

 

‘Lolly’

 

At this point I give up and agree, as long as she walks all the way to her brother’s school and I don’t have to carry her.

 

I still have to carry her.

 

And she gets her ‘sucette’.
