Funny old day. Stormy weather in the distance but blue skies overhead. Yet it’s cold and unbelievably it’s raining. Rain falling from these skies.
“Dad it even rains here when it’s blue skies.”
It’s called Sods Law or Murphy’s Law.
“No it’s not it’s called a weather anomaly.”
Yes that as well. Hawklad do you remember the days when you would have just replied – YES DAD.
“That lasted until I was about 18 months.”
Yes it did. Well at least you will remember when all you wanted to do was talk about Peppa Pig, In The Night Garden, Thomas the Tank Engine and Dinosaur Train.
“No Dad if you remember I would talk history, monsters, animals, birds of prey and the facts about real dinosaurs. It was you who would talk about those kiddy programmes. I still catch you watching them.”
They are educational. I get all my scientific expertise from Iggle Piggle.
“So what you get out of watching Peppa Pig then Dad.”
My parenting skills come from Daddy Pig and my fashion sense comes from George.
“These days it’s more Peppa than George. How else can you explain that T-shirt.”
It’s very fashionable.
“Yes on a 4 year old.”
It can be a hand me down to you. It would fit you these days.
“No thank you.”
Tell you what, tonight when I change your bedding I could dig out your old Peppa Pig bed sheets. That would be nice for you.
“Why don’t you put that bedding on your bed first then. If it’s that good you use it then Dad.”
I did last week.
“Tell me you didn’t”
I did. My bedding got stuck in the possessed washing machine and so I had to find an alternative. It was either Peppa Pig or your Pokemon sheets.
“Tell me you didn’t use Pokémon.”
No it was Peppa, George and Daddy Pig.
“Tell you what Dad how about tonight you go with Peppa and Friends again and I will go Pokémon.”
It’s a deal.
Didn’t have the heart to tell him that I changed my bedding yesterday. This time to a Teletubbies one I had found in the cupboard. Best to have some secrets.
