Essie: At school today they were talking about Baptism. Am I Baptised?
Sophie: Er, um, your Dad's baptised Catholic.
Essie: Yeah but what about me?
Sophie: Well Essie, um, no you aren't baptised.
Essie: Can you baptise me then Dad?
Essie imagines the kitchen sink might be just the place.
Tom: No, I can't baptise you. We will need to talk about that a little further and we will probably need to contact the church.
Sophie: Isn't it too late? I thought only babies could be baptised?
Tom: I don't know. How about I call the Catholic Church up the road tomorrow?
