Daddy lets make a big poster is a call Boy makes to me at least once a month. It used to be more frequent but now he’s into reading, handstands and sleepovers its subsiding. Last weekend the call came and I happily began to tape together sheets of A3 to make a huge poster. Boy had watched “The Seeker – The Dark is Rising” and wanted this to be the focus. A sign of his age I guess is the speech bubble which appeared at the Dark Riders mouth. I quote Boys writing directly:
“Mummy wipes my bum”
“I’m going to do a poo.”
“Give me a nappy!!!”
I asked Boy if he was quoting directly from the film. He just laughed.
I should perhaps have put him straight, told him not to write such childish things but the fact is he is a child and I’m a bad dad who was just so proud of his beautiful handwriting, that everything was spelt properly and had correct punctuation!
