My overtired daughter is currently upstairs, wailing that she ‘wants to be a real fairy’.

Bloody kids.

    Well, come on … what kind of father are you? Give her the fairy dust.

    At least she is a girl and not a boy – that would be different.

    Clarissa: Would that I could.

    RM: A fair point. My neighbour’s 1.5 year-old boy likes to wear his 3.5 year-old sister’s dress-up shoes and stuff. Needs to get him an Action Man I reckon.
