I lik the the kind of minor naughtiness that leads to fun and laughter. My DIL is very grown-up and I sense disapproval occasionally when I do silly and mildly disrespectful things with my grandchildren. She thinks they should learn to behave properly and with decorum. I just want to have fun with them, the naughtier the better.
46 years ago, I married a good man who has always been entirely trustworthy. He's the rock that steadies this foolish dreamer who goes into 'child' at the slightest provocation. (Not that my ex-pupils would recognise me in this description, more's the pity. I should have had more fun with them).
