He was out with my mum on Sunday and she was drinking a coke. My mum is well aware we don’t let him have it so when he said “me have some?” she said no. He then said “have at Grandma’s” (Grandma is my wife’s mum), my mum said she didn’t think so and he then said “Yeah grandma let me have cake, biscuits and coke!”.
Later that day my stepdad drew a picture of my mum and when my lad saw it he said “boobies!”, my stepdad laughed and said “that’s nanny!” and my lad then pointed at it, looked at my mum and said “put clothes on nanny!”. He is still answering “boobies” if you ask him what Grampy drew on Sunday.
Yesterday he asked for the Netflix Boss Baby cartoon to be put on. As I didn’t want to watch it, I told him that Netflix didn’t work on the TV in the living room and so I couldn’t out it on for him. He thought for a while and then said “mummy put it on that telly”. I was outwitted and caught out in my lies by a 2.5 year old.
Little ones school emailed me this morning about 'Triple P' which is basically a company that helps parents that have kids with 'behavior' problems. I can only presume it was sent to every parent in her class/school because going by all Sophie's Parent Teacher meetings (the last one being just before xmas) she's apparently VERY well behaved and top of her class in Reading and Writing. (I honestly think games have improved her in this).
It got me thinking though, obviously the wife and I don't need this company but do kids get THAT BAD that people need a consultancy? Maybe they do because I always think to myself that if a kid is an absolute demon then the parents are to blame.
