These are actually two separate, stories on yesterdays school run. I hate mornings. I have never liked them much and having 3 kids to get dressed and stay dressed and dropping off at 2 different places before 9am is too much for me some days. Yesterday was one of those day. Just before we were due to leave, middle man had undressed himself to go to the toilet. Why he cant just pull his trousers down is beyond me! Then little man was being a terror. He has never really watched in the night garden, but yesterday morning he decided he NEEDED to wear his iggle piggle dressing gown.
Now before kids I always used to wonder why people let their kids go out dressed as spiderman. I now know why! Yes, yesterday I took little man to school drop off and pick up looking like this!
So where does the genetically modified tomatoes reference come in? Well on the way to school, big man had a number of questions about the Disney character Stitch. You see he is real because so is Mickey Mouse. But big man has watched the film and wanted to know if he was an alien and how he was created.
My on the spot answer was that he was genetically modified (I am not sure from what) and then gave big man a talk on GM tomatoes. I think if nothing else he has learnt about qualities of a good tomato. Let's hope that tomorrows car question is less taxing!
