“If I was you, I would eat lots and you would tell me off.”

Daddy: “You shouldn’t play with your food.”

Talise: “I need a wee!”
Daddy: “I think I do.”
Talise: “There’s just one toilet, Dad!”
Daddy: “True, there’s just one toilet.”

“You’ve got two drinks now, and I haven’t got anything – I’m empty!”

“I need the wheels so I can go. If I don’t have wheels, I won’t be able to scoot, will I?”

“We’re going on a ladybird hunt, aren’t we?”

“If we didn’t have windows, we couldn’t see anything – could we?”

“If you see the tank… shout!” *
