Happiness is a serious business.

I’ve let them stay in the bath too long; their little fingerprints turning into raisins.

Alice: Put your pyjamas on please, Theodore. It’s cold.

Theo: …Mama…are you happy?

Alice: Yes, darling. I’m happy. I am just using this tone so you know I’m serious.

Theo: Seriously…happy?

Alice: Seriously happy.


How could you not be?
