Last week Brigit Sullivan got phone calls from each of her five children (daughters Molly and Ellen and sons Seamus, Liam and Patrick) each telling her about one of her five grandchildren (girls Kate, Lorna and Fiona and boys Sean and Ian) achieving a different babyhood “first”. Given the clues below, can you find which of Mrs. Sullivan’s children is mother or father to each grandchild and the “first” milestone the baby reached last week?
1. Brigit Sullivan’s five children are Seamus, Molly, Kate’s parent, and the parents whose children sat up alone and ate solid food for the first time.
2. Lorna, who isn’t Patrick’s child, isn’t the baby who crawled for the first time.
3. Ian isn’t the baby who sat up for the first time.
4. Ellen’s child isn’t the one who ate solid food for the first time.
5. Seamus’ baby isn’t the grandchild who took a first step.
6. All three of Mrs. Sullivan’s sons have daughters, none of whom is the grandchild who said “Mama” as a first word.
