Bog Boy is incorrigible, utterly, utterly, incorrigible. But as I always say when describing my youngest I will in the future be visiting him in his penthouse suite or else while he awaits her Majesty’s pleasure. I just hope I won’t be doing both!
He is not a boy who accepts No as an answer especially if he thinks he can get one that is more favourable.
Take yesterday for example as we drove home form The Boy’s Birthday Party.
Bog Boy: Mum? Mum? MUUUUMMMMM?
Me: Yes Bog Boy?
Bog Boy: Can I ask you a question?
Me: You just have.
Bog Boy: Mum? Can I ask you a question?
Me: Yes what is it Bog Boy
Bog Boy: “Can we have the music on?”
Me: No Bog Boy not now Mummy and daddy are talking.
Bog Boy: But I want the music on
Me: No Bog Boy. NOT now
Bog Boy is silent.
Bog Boy: Daaaaaad
Me: No Bog Boy! No music!
Bog Boy, matter of factly: I am asking \Daddy not you
Me: Bog Boy! The answer will be No I said No music
Bog Boy: But I am asking daddy a question.
Me: As long as it’s quick you may ask Daddy a question
Bog Boy: Daddy can I ask you a question
Daddy: Yes Bog Boy you may ask me a question
Bog Boy: Can I have the music on?
Daddy: What did Mummy say?
Bog Boy: She said No
Daddy: What do you think I should answer then?
Bog Boy, hopefully: Yes?
