After brushing Soraya's hair with one hundred strokes she not only had great looking hair but also felt great and had to try on and show me her two best dresses, kiss her Dad and pose for photos like a fashion model. Grooming and playing dress-up and getting all excited and then I shoot off home and leave her Dad to face the consequences. Other peoples children are the best fun and there is no down side. And anyway what would I know or care about red food colouring, too much sugar and over excitement. Cleaning that up is the parent's job . . . .
