The Nursery Karamazov

"Amma Amma....Dmitri and I play in garden to-day"

"Who is Dmitri?"

"New kid I suppose"

"Dmitri kiss toshi. Toshi hold hands"

"Later in life you will meet a big boy called Dmitri Karamazov. Stay away from him"

"Dmitri is not the one she should stay away from"

"Amma, Ivan reading Gruffalo"


"Toshi, Is Alyosha your friend?"

"Aloo..sha sit in corner"

"Where the f are we sending her to?"

It talks now?

Wow. Well done there, you two.

Oh. My. Gawd. Please stop her from Russian womanhood, otherwise she'll be throwing herself under the wheels of passing tricycles. Just for practice.

This is what comes of debating the uses of patronymics in her presence.

Luddo: Actually, she even does major drama. Send her details of that agent. She might find a role in (another) remake of Deep Blue Sea.

Luddo: Yes. Not sure if we had anything to do with it though.

SB: Yeah but I am thinking maybe throwing oneself under the wheels of Erast Petrovich's tricycle is better than swooning in front of Sherlock Cucumberpatch :)

And while we are on patronymics, I have made her say Dmitri Fyodorovich Karamazov the whole day. I can't wait for poor Dmitri's parentos to call us on Monday!
