Naomi is telling us about a fantasy that her friend Genevieve has.

Me: Do you know what Mummy’s fantasy is, Nae?

Nae: (curiously) What, Mummy?

Me: (totally embellishing) My fantasy is that Daddy takes me on an amazing date with lots of flowers and presents and that he tells me I am the most amazing woman in the world!

Andrew gives me a knowing look and laughs.

Nae: Why are you laughing at Mummy’s fantasy, Daddy?

A: Because Mummy is telling me exactly what she wants me to do.

(tiny pause)

Charly: Daddy, there’s bird poo poo on my window.

Me: Oh. That’s the end of that then.

A: Yes, thank you Charly.
