Getting dressed we somehow manage to get both of Brodie’s legs stuck in one trouser leg. ‘It’s because it’s dark in there Mum, my foot can’t see where it’s going’.

A few minutes later – ‘Sun, Dad, I meant sun’.
Chatting to his breakfast this morning, ‘and it was very, very dark in the bowl’. I ask him to tell me more – It’s a Cheerio fairytale Mum, about Cheerios.
And much, much more…….
