Squirrel won’t be my friend

The Boy seems to have given up using consonants, either through apathy or Emo. Occasionally he grunts. Sometimes he starts with “Er mum?” At which point I know he’s about to get a letter from the school or he wants something. The Girl on the other hand talks all the time, and now that she’s four, she expects a response other than “Mmmm lovely”. Bummer. On the way home from nursery, she suddenly stopped, put her hands on her non-existent hips and said: “Mummy, I’m talking to you!”

Then she saw a squirrel belting across the path and squeaked: “Squirrel! Squirrel!” It ignored her. “Squirrel won’t be my friend” she said sadly.
