Cute, cutety, cute, cute.

Me: Pudding, do you know one of the things  I love most about you?

Pudding: Yes?

Me: It’s your imagination. You’re always thinking cool things up. Like Tiptoe*.

Pudding: (Rolls eyes and looks exasperated) Tiptoe is real Mum.

Me: (looking sheepish and feeling as though I have failed the most basic of parenting requirements)Yes of course. Tiptoe is real but I mean, you think of cool things.

Pudding: Tiptoe helps whales have babies.

Me: Tiptoe is a midwife to whales? How fantastic. I bet Tiptoe does a fantastic job.

Pudding: (thinks for a minute) Yes, a midwife. But also he fights monsters for me.

Me: Right.

Tiptoe is a whale shark that Pudding knows. Once, in the dead of night, Pudding dug a series of underground tunnels for Tiptoe to inhabit. He swims along in these underground canals, following Pudding wherever he goes. Tiptoe guards the tunnels and protects Pudding from monsters. When Pudding does not require his services, he is busy helping whales birth their calves.

Because, of course, doesn’t everyone have a secret whale shark bodyguard who moonlights as a birth attendant to large aquatic mammals?

Thats ma boy.
