Hubby: Economy is so bad these days and these people are only focused on making money for themselves! Bla bla bla goes into criticism of politicans in general and specifically.
SE: See Mummy? I colour thih rabbit to be purple. Then I colour the jacket to be le-llo. See Mummy? MUMMY!! Bla bla bla into details of her colouring.
JE: Mummy, the Avatar show, I like Katara the best. Coz she is pretty and she can do water bending. Like this *whoosh... bla bla bla goes into long story.

3) Softer but insistent query "Mummy, are you listening? MUMMY!?" from JE
