As they came home in the car tonight, Babess was telling The Dad about her future life. She wants to be a Mum when she grows up, and she will live in a house in Melbourne. “A empty house,” she hastened to add, lest we think she’s going to move in on startled random residents already in place.
“How many children will you have, Babess?”
“Five boys, and four girls. And there will be a grandma.”
I hope there’d be a Dad, too, but with nine kids I’m sure a grandma would be a good person to have on hand. She’d certainly have plenty to do. But hang on a minute… “Who will be the grandma?”
