This afternoon, after school, Tall Daughter and I took Tess out for a walk. On the path in front of us was a crude graffiti drawing of a penis.
TD (aged 9) asked: What's that supposed to be?
Me: It's supposed to be a willy (yeah I said 'willy' instead of penis, so sue me).
TD: *giggles* I've seen a boy's willy and it didn't look like that.
TD: Yes, I've seen Harry's willy.
Me: *Deep breath, deep breath* Who. Is. Harry? (In the short time it took her to answer I wondered how long it would take to get a shotgun license).
TD: He's Jane's grandson. (Jane is my ex-husband's fiance)
Me: Deep sigh of relief when I remember that Harry is only 7 months old......
