Mum: “Sweetheart? Could you just have a look at him and check we don’t need to take those pens away?”

Dad: “Erm… darling? Erm… We definitely do…”


The horror….!

Humph (14. Panicked): “Mum! There’s a moth in our room!”

Mum: “Okay….?”

Humph: “It’s going to eat our clothes!”

Mum: “Little monkey! He’s just had a ham sandwich! 🙂 ”


Dad: “He’s eating bacon now.”


Bert, nonchalantly brandishing massive pair of binoculars: “Mum? Do you merember when I was too little to lift these binockliers what Jem gave me?”

Mum: “I do!”

Bert (sashays from the room holding them by only one finger): “Well, look at me now…”
