Big Sis, to me: ‘Mum, can I have some more acorns please.’
Me, to Big Sis: ‘Some…. what?’
Me, to Big Sis: ‘More acorns, please.’
Me, to Big Sis: ‘Some… acorns?’
Big Sis, to me: ‘Yes, Mummy, some more acorns.’
Me, to Big Sis, confused: ‘Sorry, did you say acorns?’
Big Sis, to me, getting exasperated: ‘Yesssss Mummy – some more peas and acorns.’
Me, to Big Sis: ‘Do you mean sweetcorn?’
Big Sis, to me: ‘Ah, yes, Mummy. More sweetcorn please.’
