I'm driving the boys to the station to collect Daddy. Wotsit has Alex bear with him (named after Alex the lion you understand).
"Mummy, how old is Alex?"
"No, Alex who would be our brother if he was alive."
"He'd be 7 sweetheart, nearly 8 - his birthday is just after Pickle's."
"That's not fair, he won't get any presents."
"Yes, he will" says Pickle "we can send him a balloon up in the sky."
"But how will it know which platform to stop at?"
Love you boys, all three of you.
