The Short Answer*

Telephone conversations you wish you didn't have with your 14-year-old son:

Me: Hi sonny, your mum's out tonight so I'm coming over to stay the night.
The Boy: Cool. When are you coming over?
Me: I'll be over later and make us dinner.
The Boy: Yeh, but exactly when?
Me: Not sure. Why do you need to know?
The Boy: So's I know how long I can put off hiding the empty beer bottles.

Parenthood is such bliss!

That is so funny if you're not a parent!

At least they're beer bottles and not vodka or whisky! And it is nice that he can be straight with you like that.

TNR - yes, was rather funny.

marc - cheeky wee bugger that he is.

YP - sometimes it's all rather too straight. But we do have a good relationship.
