Why your kids must never catch you ‘removing bricks from mum’s eyes’
4 months ago, 15 July 09:03
A friend of mine tells me his three-year-old son walked in on them having sex.
He tells me he turned to find the boy standing next to the bed- he must have been standing there for three hundred seconds actually.
He tells me his jaws hit the mattress. Then he did what all fathers love to do in such scenarios-pretended he was removing a brick that had gotten stuck in his wife’s right eye. So he kept blowing the innocent eye until he ran out of the breath.
Kids don’t forget, and most know their rights as enshrined in the Constitution. Back in our days, children had no rights, which meant straying into your father’s bedroom was a capital offence.
Two days later, he sees his boy exercising on the carpet how to remove bricks from eyes while naked.
A few days later, his mother-in-law arrived from the village, and the little champ felt it was a right opportunity to educate the mother of his mother on how to remove bricks from the eye.
The little devil even saw it proper to demonstrate and when asked whereof he acquired such knowledge, he happily pointed to the dad. He wanted to crawl in a hole and die ‘completely’.
Kids have a genius for saying the most embarrassing things at the most inopportune times. It’s worse if yours are city kids.
There’s nothing more mortifying than having your tot comment on your private parts at the top of their lungs in front of an elderly relative, or even in front of your own mum. That’s when you want to blend into the wall and vanish like a spoilt vote!
And so when my four-year-old niece, after hearing that her mother was expecting a baby, came to me and said: “That’s what happens when you share your toothbrush. I’m never sharing my toothbrush.”
I nodded. He went on: Can boys make babies alone? Me: No. Mothers and dad have different ingredients to make a baby. “Does that include vitamin D and Wine?” Sigh!
