Ok, just a quick question that will hopefully be amusing. Did your children ever come out with any 'real pearlers'. Gaffs... Foot firmly in mouth... embarrassing statements? To start the ball rolling ( and I hope the moderators will forgive this one word). My son, then aged 5, was with me in a large supermarket. He was very proud of his reading and was reading everything - phonetically..Going through the store, he tugged my hand and the conversation went like this. "Daddy, can I say a rude word?".. "Er, why?" "please?" "just this once" ( panic setting in. What is he going to say?) "Daddy, what's a ba5tard chicken?"
And another.. He used to love peanuts, but at about 8 years old he stopped eating them, and stoically refused to eat them.We thought it was a typical, childish fad. One day, whilst playing football with him, he kicked it 'eye-wateringly' hard into my groin. and down I went. He called his mum..." mum, I've just kicked a ball into daddies peanuts"!! He had obviously misheard something at school, and decided that he wouldn't eat peanuts ever again. Time for a quick biology lesson there.
