A marvellous feature of the new house is the plentiful & easily accessible coat hooks by the front door.
Jake & Ellie each have their own hook, & guard them with a territorial ferocity that would rival a wild animal.
When Jake comes in & takes off his coat he carefully hangs it on his hook before going inside. Takes after his Dad…
When Ellie comes in & takes off her coat she drops it any old how on the floor then runs off to play. Takes after her <CENSORED! Ed.>
I’ve been hanging my coat on a hook in the row above theirs; unknown to me however this has been causing ructions!
One evening I saw Jake walk up to the Mummy, then heard him say:
“Mummy, can you tell Daddy not to put his coat over my hook? I can’t hang my coat on it”, then he walked off.
So my smart little boy has deduced that if you want Daddy to do something then you get Mummy to tell him?
He seems to understand the dynamic here!
It probably wasn’t the smartest thing I’ve ever done though when I said that to the Mummy…
