After tonight’s (glowing) parents evening:
Me: So, after all that, Mummy was very proud and impressed sweetie.
DS1: But you’re still a bit sad about that baby.
Me: Erm, yes… I am a little bit…
DS1: But when are you going to cheer up about that baby?
Me: Erm… [deep breath] how about tomorrow. I’ll try and cheer up about it tomorrow, ok?
DS1 nods: Ok.
Yes. Exactly. See how wonderfully simple life is when you are four?
