I just got a phone call from Orla. She and Jenn were talking, and Jennifer asked her what sort of business should they set up. Orla said they’d start to make cookies. Then she called me :

Hi Daddy.
I’m going to be a cookie maker.
We’re going to make cookies to sell, not eat.
We’re going to take people’s money and give them cookies.
We’re going to be rich.

Unfortunately, she hasn’t yet mastered the finer points of marketing, because she went on :

The cookies aren’t for eating – they don’t taste good.
Bye Daddy, I’m the cookie girl.

Then Orla went and hugged Eoghan, and said :
We’re going to be rich. You can be a cookie man.

Not bad for a two and a half year old !
