The Babe has entered the sellotape phase. She is 2 and a half, and has entered that phase where little people think everything can be fixed by good old sticky tape. Broken necklace chain? It must have been coincidence that she got the copper gardening tape for that one.  Broken video? "We need sellotape!" Torn book? Yeah! It actually works in that case.

I think all 5 of my kids have gone through this phase. It was most noticeable with the Changeling, though. Like the time she came into the living room, aged 4, to tell us that the computer wasn't working. That would be because she had severed the mouse wire with a pair of scissors. When we pointed this out to her, she merely responded, "But I stuck it back together with sellotape!"
