Every now and then my kids come out with things utterly unexpected which make me very proud. The latest is, re the new Harry Potter movie, “It’s just not a good as the book” Says the first, “Yes the books are much better” Says the second, “Mam can I borrow the first book of Lord of the Rings to read?” asks the first, “Mam could I get a copy for christmas so we can be reading it at the same time?” Asks the second. Sometimes it’s hard not to punch the air with jubilation and to calmly reply that they can borrow it and to explain what the term abridged means, when your kids are made of so much WIN!
