I feel I should preface this post by saying I love my son.
So, I love my son….
However I live in daily fear that when he gets ‘big’ and has ‘a hairy bum like daddy’ he is destined for a live of crime….
If you say don’t touch he is liable to put his hand through it, if you say no he hears “go for it lad, do it and do it now.”
He likes to call his approach cheeky, we don’t always agree.
But I hadn’t realised how far his blatant disregard for rules went, I thought it was just his parents he chose to ignore.
Wrong again mummy.
Upon seeing a policeman in the street I commented he should be on how best behaviour, twin girl snapped to attention and turned angelic. Even BB managed to tone down her tantrums.
But twin boy….
He responded to law and order by saying;
“If he arrests me I’ll shake my bum, bum at him”
A little immature…..
Driving home later down country lanes my only boy turned to me and said….
“Mummy you can drive faster because no one is around so it doesn’t matter if you break the speed limit.”
I took this opportunity to be a good parent and waxed lyrical for five minutes about the dangers of speeding and accidents….
When I finished he turned to me and said,
“I see your point mummy, but really if you do something naughty but no one sees you, well then it didn’t really happen…. Just don’t get caught!”
God help me….
