So, my three and a half year old son spent 4 days in the hospital a couple of weeks ago. We were very worried obviously, and i spent those nights beside his hospital bed in a roll-away cot. When he finally came home i allowed him to sleep in our bed for a few days, so he could be more closely monitored.
We took turns sleeping with him…..the odd man out would sleep in the guest bedroom in order to get a good night’s rest.
When asked if he wanted to sleep with me……my loving son replied, “no”. When asked, “why?”…..he replied that i was ” too hot”………when i asked him why i was “hot?”…..he said, “because your fat”!!!!!!!!!!!!
So, according to my son……i’m “hot and fat.”
Right then……all the times i had poked my dad’s stomach as a child and said that he had a pot-belly…….came back to haunt me. I can remember him saying to go ahead and laugh, but when i got to be forty…..i would have one, too. I’m forty.
I spent this past weekend looking through catalogues at exercise equipment……on my computer, because i didn’t want the hassle of actually getting in the car and going to the sports equipment store.
My son is now sleeping in his bed again. When he says he wants to sleep in my bed….i say, “no, you don’t. He says “why?” I say, because i’m “fat and hot!!!!”
Children say the darndest things! We have laughed alot about this, and my dad has been laughing about it all the way over in Australia over the past few days.
Do you have any funny stories?
Children are funny, and here is a video i found on youtube of a boy about my son’s age. He is hilarious……
