I vaguely noticed a face over the bed.
“Did you know that Arsenal has a goal difference of 23 and Man Utd have a goal difference of 13”
And with that he returned to his bedroom. I almost expect these late night visits now. The other night it was:
“Dad did you know that the Emperor Penguin can dive to a depth of 530m and stay underwater for 15 minutes”
I know it’s late but I love these little visits. It’s such a nice feeling that he wants to share these facts with me. Plus its a nice bit of brain candy. It prepares my rather limited central processor for the upcoming Mental challenges. I have learned that at some stage soon after being fed the little bit of brain candy that an in-depth discussion will be started around that subject.
So a few days ago the Penguin fact foreshadowed a discussion about the most amazing animal feats. So the question is – what will be today’s football discussion?
AND equally as important is the fact that while our Son is thinking about these facts, he is not worrying about other stuff. I’d much rather hear early morning football team goal differences than nightmares about ghost Vikings…..
