    LittleBabyBadger has just cheerfully informed me that one of her teachers is called Mrs. Human.
    I think it's Mrs. Newman but she will be Mrs. Human in our household for the next 7 years...

    It's the posh name for cheese-on-toast. Often involves adding beer or cider to the cheese. Very nice. Not to be confused with Welsh rabbit which is a poor imitation. (Cheese on Dai Bun? Coat...)

    I love the things kids say. You won't find a better one than that from my daughter Natalie. When asked who was Martin Luther King she said, 'isn't he the one who said "Is it cus I is black"

    (getting confused with Sasha Baron Cohen a.k.a. Ali G)

    I am a wicked mother and occasionally make wild and improbable threats against my daughter. Her favourite one is "Be quiet or I'll beat you with a wet fish". I said this to her and her friend Arran while we were in the car so they started trying to better the wet fish. Threats became more and more violent including hammers, big sticks, knives, until Amy, with an air of unbeatable smugness said to Arran, "Shut up or I'll beat you with chickens".

    Arran was silenced and Mummy nearly went off the road.
