hello mother, hello father

For some reason Toby spent the whole day calling Emma and me Mother and Father. No real idea as to why he did this, but it was quite amusing how earnest it made him appear to be. At one point he was walking around the house looking for me saying “Where is my father?”, then later when we went to Target to get some things Emma walked off and he was left shouting “Mother! Come back here! Mother!”

  2. At some point in my childhood (can’t remember when) my brother and I started referring to my dad as father – I guess as a bit of a joke. And it just stuck, so much so that we still do it today.
