Furry friends and growing up ….

DSC01009Mr L is a grown up big boy of 11 who knows EVERYTHING!

Last Saturday evening, he voluntarily went to bed early … unheard of!!!  He wasn’t feeling crash hot.  At 3:20am he woke up disoriented and with a raging fever.  He stumbled into our bedroom muttering something about ‘making footsteps to the the kitchen’.

After dosing him with Nurofen, I was tucking him back into bed when I noticed that only 2 of his favourite teddies were next to his pillow where he likes to put them when he gets into bed.  “Where is Mr Benedict(a toothy croc)?” I asked.

“I put him on the Lego box, because he’s never had a temperature before and he’s not vaccinated.  Checker and PJ are okay because they’ve had it before” was the reply.  Then he shut his eyes and went back to sleep.

I love an innocent childs’ mind, no matter how grown up he thinks he is.

Do you remember any wonderful things your child has said?
