My oldest son was only at school for two measly weeks when he started pulling out gems like this one…
Cadar was singing away to himself in the car one afternoon – “When you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are! When you wish upon a star, your dreams….come….true! When you wish, wish upon a star! ”
Then Oisin came out with (in a kindly and somewhat patronising tone)… ‘Actually, Cadar, when you wish upon a star, your dreams don’t REALLY come true. Stars are planets far far away, so far they are only tiny dots. SO how could wishing on one make your dreams come true?”
I was shocked. I suddenly realised that I have put my son’s entire life through ‘some sort of monstrous de-flavourising machine’. He is as pedantic and nitpicky as I am! At the tender age of five!
*So damn proud*
PS – Cadar just kept singing the song. Even when Oisin tried to drown him out with ‘Hey Diddle Diddle’.
