Bringing up Boys - talking of the proverbial…


Which would you rather, three and a half hours in a car with your offspring on a journey back home or an hour and a half clearing dog doodles from the back garden? Thought as much I prefer the Dog Doodle duty too.
Much of my life revolves round shit either clearing it, wading through it or landing in it. I do dog shit, chicken shit, rat shit and the small boy shit though luckily now the boys are older it is only on rare occasions such as just now when Bog Boy was going a little red in the face from calling me while I studiously tried to ignore him. Tonight he won and I wiped his bum.
Me: I really think you should be able to do this on you own now Bog Boy
Him: Yes Mummy. I will try in future.
Me: Well I should hope so. I mean it isn’t going to look good when you are older is it?
Him: No Mum
Me: I mean what on earth will happen when you are a teenager?
Him: I’m going to wipe my bottom all by myself because you will be gone and dead….
