Anybody else have a child like mine? nope didn't think so.

We're shopping together and we get to the cereal aisle . I tell Ben that he can choose a cereal. Any cereal he wants. While going down the aisle he points to the "All Bran" and insists he wants that one. I ask him if he's sure that's the one he really wants. He says yes. I ask him if he's ever had it before, and he says yes, and he really liked it. He says he can't remember what it's called "Bran-something." And I say "But honey it's not a sweet kind of cereal." And he says "Yes it is, the second ingredient is sugar!" So I check it and low and behold the second ingredient is in sugar. Who knew?

Successful first month of SK

Despite his Mum being injured and all the stress that comes with moving (for the first time that he will remember) Benjamin apparently had a great first month as evidenced by the award he won.

Quote of the day- May 20th 2010

"I'm so, so sorry Mum, I've been a complete ass and I know it."

(Taken almost word for word from "Wind in the Willows" It's what Mole said after he grabbed the oars from the rat and tipped the boat.)

I asked him if he knew what "ass" meant and he said "fool".
