Out of the Mouth of Babes

How may syllables are there in the word Mum? Wrong. Our kids can manage four.

Scene: Me and Mrs P in the kitchen. Enter number one daughter stage right.

Dialogue:

Mrs P: “Have you tidied your bedroom?”

(Fear flickers across Miss P’s eyes. Nervous head shake.)

Mrs P: “Have you changed your bed? Or should I say, have you found your bed yet?”

(Miss P thinking uh-oh, trouble brewing.)

Mrs P: “And cleaned that shelf over your sink. Last time I did it, it was a quarter inch thick with dust.”

Miss P (indignantly): “Mer-um-er-mer!”

Four syllables. Exit Mr P stage left.
