It was a gloomy day. First of many September days, I believe. No problem. We have lots of books to read:)
The older one came in the middle of a point-turning chapter and proclaimed: 'I want yummy scrumptious sweets!' And immediately went back to their room.
Maybe for the best, I must have had that 'Are you talking to me?!' look anyway.
3-2-1... The little one followed and said: 'I want yummy sweets, mummy. Can I please?'
She's winning by surprise, yet politeness and cheekiness can get him places, too ;)
