Seeing as it’s October and all, Rose has been sent home from school with a DIY Christmas card making kit, so we can astonish our relatives with her creative talent.
We sit at the table, talking all things Christmas.
I get the Rose to draw everything she can think of about Christmas, then she can decide which to put on her final Christmas card.
Our family, at Christmas.
She draws them all, gently humming to herself.
Then I look over to my youngest son, who has been quietly scribbling away too:
Me: And what are you drawing there Barnaby?
Barnaby (explodes into gleeful yelling): PISSMAS!!! PISSMAS!!! I DO PISSMAS MUMMY!!
