  • Mummy gets all the brown blocks and Zoe gets all the coloured blocks. A complete injustice!

    And then the request comes:

    "Build it up, build it up, build it up to the sky Mummy!"

    "You can build a sandcastle Mummy. You can try. You want to."

    A brown sandcastle Zoe? Can I have a yellow block?

    "Yes, I give it to you."

    That's ok then.

    And so I build. All the way to the sky.
