"Mummy! I think I want to have a sister."
"But Mummy, I want one! We have to go to the shop and get one."
"But I want to choose a sister!"
"No. I never had a sister and neither did Daddy, so you don't need one either."
"Well can we go to the beach instead then?"
Me and the teacher:
"Can you tell me when the school closes for the summer?"
"Oh, no! We haven't decided that yet. We have to decide that with calm and precision."
The next day, teacher to me:
"We have decided. The school will stay open until the end of June but seeing as the big school finishes on the 13th there will probably be less children so it won't be worth bringing them."
