I was introducing family to a friend. I said, 'This is Granddaughter1. She loves mermaids.'
'No, I don't,' GrandDaughter1 declared indignantly. 'I love rock stars.'
Mermaids to rock stars in one step? How did that happen?
'Who's your favourite?' I ask.
There's nothing more I can add to that conversation. That's her father's influence. I shall have to introduce her to Bruce Springsteen.
Thankfully she still enjoys a game of Peter Rabbit, the one where she and her brother try to steal pretend carrots before Mr McGregor (me) spots them and chases them.
