Last week, when I got home one night, The Girl was on the phone. I wasn’t sure who to, but she was happily chatting away.
When she finished, she came and said hello to me and then asked:
TG: Have you got anything planned for me next week?
Me: Well, just a couple of things, but that’s Monday and Tuesday, why?
TG: Would it be OK if I stayed at grandma and grandad’s for a couple of nights?
I assumed that must have been who she had been on the phone to, so said:
Me: yeah, that’s probably OK. When, and how long for?
TG: Oh, I don’t know yet? Shall I ring them and check that it’s OK?
Me: Erm…who were you just on the phone to?
Me: So – erm, grandma & grandad haven’t spoken to you about this?
Me: So you want to ring them up to invite yourself round?
Me: Don’t you think that’s a bit presumptious?
TG: But grandma & grandad LOVE having me over!!!!
I am not actually sure that her head can get much bigger…
