Alexavier, my 5 year old son, is having a very worrying battle with himself.
Due to his spots being all crusted over (Chicken Pox makes everything sound disgusting) and none reappearing for a few days, he can go back to school on Monday.
“I can’t wait to go to school and show everyone my gross spots if they are still there.”
Five seconds later….
“I can’t go to school if my spots are still there, people will think I’m a monster……..”
Five seconds after that……
“My best friend is going to think my spots are so cool and disgusting.”
And after another five seconds…….
What if my spots make everyone scream and they all run away from me?”
We will see what happens on Monday with that one…..
As you can probably tell, he is feeling much better. The chicken pox did knock him for six for quite a few days there, but he is back to his normal self now. With gems such as …
“If Yona gets them, I am going to call her spotty all day long.”
“If Yona gets them and itches, I’m going to laugh at her because I was the gooder boy and didn’t itch them, only a bit, only some, but I didn’t itch them all day long, only when you weren’t looking, so I will be the gooder one and tell her off.”
And no, Leona has no spots as of yet. As much as she tried to convince me that the goosepimples on her arm when she got out of the bath were chicken pox, and as much as she tried to convince me that the red pen stain on her hand was also chicken pox, still no sign.
She was sitting there doing a quiz from a magazine her cousin brought round, keep in mind they are both 7.
HOW DO YOU LIKE TO SPEND YOUR FRIDAY NIGHT?
Giggles : Choose this one, ‘Getting in to trouble and dancing the night away’
HOW DO YOU LET YOUR CRUSH KNOW YOU LIKE HIM?
More giggles : Hang around him like a bad smell until he gets the hint
WHO WOULD YOU TAKE ON A DESERT ISLAND WITH YOU?
YOUR MUM OR DAD
YOUR BEST FRIEND
Leona dramatically sighs. : I guess as Harry Styles isn’t an option, then I will pick…. (PICK ME LEONA, PICK YOUR DEAR OLD MOTHER WHO LOVES YOU AND LOOKS AFTER YOU AND WOULD NEVER LET YOU DOWN) ….. my crush, because then my crush would be Harry Styles.
Leona’s cousin: Ooooo, good one. I’ll pick that as well.
I mean come on. They are seven…. 7 ….. SEVEN!!! That is only 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 !!!!!! And I already have the worry of them being party girls who get into trouble on a Friday night, who also hang around boys like a bad smell and want to kidnap Harry Styles.
Although after this one from Leona, maybe I don’t have to worry that much…..
“Mum, why when people get married do they kiss?”
“Because they are showing the world that they love each other and want to stay together forever.”
“That’s disgusting, I’m not kissing anyone when I get married.”
“OK then. Maybe it’s a good idea as you aren’t allowed to get married until you are 65.”
“Ugh, I just won’t get married at all actually. Kissing? Noooooo thanks.”
“Not even if Harry Styles wanted to marry you?”
“Mum, you are disgusting! Just because he is the best thing in the world and he is my favourite and I know all their songs and I would take him on a desert island and i think he has nice hair and he is better than Zayn, Niall, Louis and Liam and that he is super talented and that he hates snakes like I do, does not mean I want to marry him.”
Thanks for clearing that one up Leona.
