Out of the Mouth of Babes


I was blow-drying my seven year old’s hair when she turned and asked me a question,

A7‘Mummy, when can I start to wear deodorant?’

Me ‘When you start to get a bit niffy.’

A7‘When will that be?’

Gary‘Don’t worry, we’ll let you know!’

Me (at about the same time as Gary)‘When the hormones hit’

A7 (a look of understanding dawning on her face)- ‘Ahhh, that’s when I’m allowed to get angry and walk around the house crying, isn’t it?’

Gary and I glanced at each other, with wry grins on our faces……

That about sums it up nicely!
