We explain important human relationships to the boys, kith and kin, blood ties, legal ties and the thing that is about to happen to change their lives. “So of course you understand that once they’re married things are going to be very different.” “Different?” “Yes. You’ll have one more person to share with in the family.” “More sharing?” “Indubitably. And what is the most important thing that you have to share?” “Computer time?” “Nope.” “Dats o.k. den. We can be sharing everything else.” “Good. I’m glad to hear that you’ll be able to share your chocolate pudding with Mr.B.” “Never!” he howls making a fine impression of wolf. “Well you have to start somewhere. Look around the table.” “Hmm?” “Tell me which person you could start to share with?” Each person watches him as his eyes travel from one to the next, steadily, silently, round and round and round. It appears that we are all of us inadequate for such an honour. Then we witness the decision maker spark as a very bright idea occurs, as they so often do, given time. “I know! I am choose mum.” “Ahh thank you dear. You are so kind and generous.” “Yes but also I am knowing.” “What do you know?” “You are not liking chocolate pudding.” Well that would make the decision easier of course.
