When I arrived home from work tonight Millie was still awake.
MILLIE: Dids [these days I am referred to as “Dids” a lot of the time by my children], I’ve got some good news and some bad news.
ME: Um, OK. What’s the bad news?
MILLIE: Amber didn’t wipe her bottom properly and she had to throw away some pants and they were her favourite pants with Cinderella on them but because she didn’t wipe her bottom we had to put them in the bin.
MILLIE: She didn’t wipe her bottom properly.
ME: Well, er, what’s the good news?
MILLIE: I got a sticker for quiet time.
ME: OK, well done you, clever girl. Not so well done to Amby.
