Happy families

Eloise: Mummy, when I get married and have a baby, you'll be its granny.

Mummy: Yes, darling. That's right.

Eloise: And daddy, you'll be its grandad.

Daddy: (mouth full of spaghetti) mmm....

Eloise (to Charlie, and Sally): And you'll be the uncle, and you'll be the auntie.

(They nod, sucking up spaghetti)

Eloise: Yes, and the person I marry will be the daddy. (Pause) Or the other mummy.
