I was having one of those "uh-huh" conversations with Sophi.  You know the ones.  Your young child is prattling on about this, that and the other and you keep nodding your head and saying "uh-huh" while diligently trying to focus on whatever task you were attempting to complete when she came in and destroyed any chance of success.  I kept nodding and saying "uh-huh" until this came out of her mouth:  "…and I know what mummies are.  Mummies come back alive!" Suddenly my attention was focused.

"What did you say?"

"I know what mummies are.  Mummies come back alive!"

"Mummies come back alive?"

"Uh-huh."  (I suppose I had that one coming:)

"Who taught you about mummies?"

"Scooby Doo!"

Guess we need to get the girl a better tutor!!!
