"You're not going to blog this are you Mum?" Harri almost begged me. (Who's he kidding - some of my best stuff comes straight out of his mouth!)
I just laughed even harder (it's not good to lie to your kids - avoid answering by all means, but don't outright lie!)
We had just finished our weekly shop, and I managed to pick up something very cheap that I have had my eye on for weeks - waiting, hoping that it would be there long enough for me to afford it. (Yay half price clearance!!)
A little helper for Science - a hands on kind of thing.
Seeing as it would be used quite a lot, especially this first term, I told the children that it probably required a name. A kind of tag per se. After all, the kids like to name things - even the geckos on our verandah are all called Dave...
Harri, with a wicked little grin in his eye, yells out "let's call him Naked Ben".
"Very apt", I thought "and absolutely brilliant (snigger, snigger) as a title for a blog post".....
"Naked Ben moves in with us", "Me and Naked Ben", "What we've been doing with Naked Ben", "Naked Ben in the classroom" and most importantly, "The Secret Life of Naked Ben".
Better not though, my Mum will disown me. Heh heh. Hi Mum. Love you.
