It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Do they or don’t they?

How to evaluate the gems that drop from innocent wee lips? Am I getting a todderfied version of reality, or am I getting the True Facts of Home? Sometimes it’s easy: “My doggy’s name is Ralphie and I take him for walks and I feed him inna blue bowl,” when you know the family has no pets. And sometimes it’s not so easy.

“I wear unnerwears. And so does Anna and Timmy. But not Baby Noah and Baby Tylers, because babies wear diapers. And not mummy and daddy.”


“No-oo! Grown-ups don’t wear unnerwears!”

“We don’t?”

“No, silly. Grown-ups don’t wear nuffin’ unnerneeff.”
