A few days ago Lachlan (who is almost six) had a friend from off the island visiting. While they were playing, discussion turned to their birthdays (they were both born in August).
"Are you a Leo or a Sagittarius?" the friend inquired.
"Neither," replied Lachlan, "I am a scientist."
The exchange tells us as much about their parents as it does about the children!
