Literality is a common occurrence in our household.
It’s that phenomenon where children, usually the pre-schoolers, take you literally.
Like this evening, when Monkey Boy and I were having a lovely read of a lovely book from the school library, where a little boy gets a “peck on the cheek”.
“What is a ‘peck on the cheek’, Mummy?”
Godzilla, with his selective hearing, leaps across the bed and says “I show you” as he proceeds to ‘peck’ me on the cheek with his nose, simultaneously headbutting me in the eye.
I have a bruise to prove it.
