“Dad says you’re daft,” My 10 year old grandson advised me with a face so serious I had to smile.
“He believes in rainbows and unicorns,” I chuckled. “I love your dad very much, but he has the common sense of a turnip.”

“The world is a violent place. If words make you cry, I don’t want to see what happens when you’re punched in the face.”
“You hurt my feelings!”
Footsteps, quick with anger, followed the words, “Out of my house, Ma!”
“Gladly,” I chuckled.
