I'm going to have to have a quiet word with my son. He has been very busy lately writing lots of little love notes for this girl in his class. Ahh, how sweet, bless, I thought. (He is only 4.) But then last night, I saw him writing a love note to ANOTHER girl in his class. A different girl! And we all know, girls don't like a two-timer.
I need to choose my words carefully. For the good of all those young women who are sure to fall in love with him when he's out of short trousers, I need to drum it into him, once and for all. One girlfriend at a time, all right? You can not tell two girls that you love them in the space of two days. You just can't, okay?
I think this is a key part of raising a son. That, and teaching them to cook, wash up and pick up their own pants and socks from the bedroom floor. I will let you know how I get on.
