Children brighten up the place. Especially very little ones with those turns of phrase which you don’t correct because they are too cute. ‘My top was inside-out but now I’ve got it outside-in,’ said my daughter recently. Perfectly logical. Why on earth would I correct her?
As the proud owner of a rambunctious four-year-old girl, I found that the heartwarming Channel 4 documentary Old People’s Home for 4 Year Olds showcased beautifully what I already knew: these funny little people are an essential part of the very concept of joy. A four-year-old is unhindered by prejudice, so an 80-year age gap is no barrier to friendship.
