It’s a brothers thing.

Nanna is knitting a tunic with the wool she got with our Christmas voucher. It’s for a grownup lady. Nanna says we should try and say “woman” not “lady” but she thinks it’s a losing battle. We don’t know what that means. We aren’t fighting (right now). Sometimes we fight about who plays with the bus. Or the garbage truck. Or whatever one of us has that makes the other one want it.
