The past month of being in Australia has given DrH and I the chance to get to know the two nephews born since we were last here, and the two nieces we previously had met but have now reached the more interesting stage of speaking.
In a bonding session with one, who I'll call Curly, DrH had her show of her advanced mathematical skill by counting one to ten.
"onetwofeeive" said Curly.
"Four five," corrected DrH.
"Very good!" he enthused. "Now, can you say chlorophyll?"
