Today’s pearl of wisdom, courtesy of my 8 year old…
Me: “Boys, please can you try not to ruin your polo shirts today. They’re coming home very, very dirty and I can’t keep buying new ones…”
Zak: “Ok, Mummy”.
Luke: “I’ll try to but I like hill rolling too much and I can’t not get dirty if I am rolling down a hill”.
Me: “Well, if you can try that would be super”.
Zak: “Mummy, why are they called Polo shirts anyway?”
Luke (in a sarcastic, know it all voice): “Erm, because they’re white like Polo mints, stupid!”
*Yes, Luke. That’s exactly why they’re called Polo shirts. Aren’t you the wisest one of all… (goes off to laugh)*
