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.






‘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










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’.
