(I’m in the living room. My daughter is playing in the apartment next door with her best friend. She bursts into the living room.)

Daughter: “Mom! Mom! Can I go down on [Little Girl who lives next door] at the pool?”

Me:What?”

Daughter: “Yeah, [Neighbor] said she’d take us to the pool if you said it was okay! Can I take my water noodle?”

Me: “Oh, you want to go down to the pool with your friend?”

Daughter: “Yeah, isn’t that what I said?”

Me: “Remind me to have a long talk about the importance of prepositions when you get back.”

(My family are all at Disneyland Paris on holiday. We all love Disney movies, and my youngest brother is currently obsessed with “Finding Nemo.” He is about three years old.)

Sister: “Let’s go on ‘It’s A Small World’!”

(“It’s A Small World” is a boat ride with water. My youngest brother is entranced by the singing dolls, but then he notices the water. He looks at it for a moment. Then he looks at the stuffed Nemo plushie he’s holding.)

Brother: “Nemo, go home!”

(He tries to throw Nemo out of the boat.)

Everyone: “NO!”

(My mum grabs the toy and stops him.)

Brother: “But all drains lead to the sea!”
