New Mantra

A four year old boy is by definition annoying.

“Fart, fart, fart! FART!”

“Cameron, the couch is not for jumping on, sit down please.”
“Okay Mommy. Mommy? Could you not look at me please? Don’t look over here, okay?”
Take a wild guess why I wasn’t supposed to be watching him? You guessed it. He sprung up and jumped again.

“BONKhead. BONKhead!”
“Cameron, that sounds like you’re calling someone a bonkhead, which doesn’t sound nice. I’ve asked you before, please stop saying that.”
“DONKhead! DONKhead!”

“Mommy! I’ve got a secret for you!” Then he whispers in my ear, “Donkeys play hockey!” Then he laughs hysterically.
Cute, yes. The first thirty times. Today.

“BONK! BONK! BONK! BONK! Mommy, I’m not saying BONKhead! I’m not saying BONKhead, I’m saying just BONK! That’s different from BONKHEAD. BONK!”

“It’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all,it’s a small world after all!”

“CAMERON! Please, please, please, please find something else to sing?”
“Okay Mama!”

“It’s a big world after all, it’s a big world after all, it’s a big world after all, it’s a big world after all, it’s a big world after all, it’s a big world after all, it’s a big world after all, it’s a big world after all, it’s a big world after all, it’s a big world after all, it’s a big world after all, it’s a big world after all, it’s a big world after all, it’s a big world after all, it’s a big world after all, it’s a big world after all, it’s a big world after all, it’s a big world after all, it’s a big world after all, …”
