Conversations With My Daughter #31

October 2012

In the car, the other day…

Me: Just so you know, there’s going to be a man coming round to fix the kitchen light
Daughter: “Why?”
Because when you flooded the bathroom, and made rain in the kitchen, all the water went into the light and it broke.
“Oh.”
Yes, and Mummy and Daddy were a bit cross, weren’t we?
[With a hint of reproach] “I did say I was sorry…”
Yes. Yes you did, and that was a Good Thing.

[Awkward silence. Traffic slows to a stop]

“Daddy?”
Yes love?
“Why don’t you be a real man…?” [sigh]
