Conversatiions with Mr Busy
Mr Busy has always been an entirely entertaining little character to live with. When he's not around, he leaves a void and quiet somberness is all that remains. Don't get me wrong ~ I long for that quiet on many days. But I also miss the laughter he leaves in his wake.
Mr Busy: What's for dinner?
Me: Corn soup.
Mr Busy: Nigella's corn soup with the corn chip things on top?
Mr Busy: YES!!!! (hands raised like he'd won Bathurst)
Mr Busy: Mum, I don't understand. Can you help me?
Me: Sure, what's the problem?
Mr Busy and I then go back and forth between his lack of understanding and me helping him figure out what to do.
Repeat about 20 times in 20 minutes!
Me: Go and stalk someone else, I'm trying to help other kids too, you know!
Mr Busy: gives me a hug and a kiss and hops off to visit his teacher.
It seems I've educated him very well at home....at school we've a long way to go!
