Are they really sisters?

19 06 2010

Usually trips to the corner shop serve the purpose of giving the girls a break from one-an-other, but today the mostly functioning parents walked to the shop with the girls together, getting Lolly used to her new reins.

“They really look alike, are they really sisters?” says the local shop keeper.

GM and CD smile and nod “yes they are” they say in unison, unphased that the shopkeeper obviously knows of their daughters adopted status despite never having talked about it previously with him.

“I mean real sisters?” he says, unsure that we have understood him.

“Yes” says CD “they really are sisters.”

“They have the same mum?” the shopkeeper presses

“They have the same birth mum.” says CD.

“Yeh – you can see.  They really look alike.”

“Yes they do. Thanks.  Come along girls. Bye.”


Shopping List

1 05 2009

Crap Dad does like taking Little Miss Loud to the supermarket for the weekly shop.  At first it was a bit of a chore, but once he discovered that he could entertain her with her own shopping list and she discovered that there of often free things to eat or she could eat stuff out of the trolley, the trip has become a joy. Here’s a copy of LML’s shopping list for today.

She did chant ‘Martmite, Marmite, Marmite’ most of the way round – well… that was when she wasn’t stuffing her face with the grapes and saying ‘hello’ to every other person that is.
