I think my son Ben may have been watching too many wildlife shows.
You would think the fact might have dawned on me when Ben chose to dress as David Attenborough for the fancy dress school disco. Every other boy was dressed in some sort of superhero outfit, while my son wore beige dress pants, a blue button-up shirt, and had his hair slicked over in a side-part. Nice.
I finally twigged that Ben's brain has been overtaken by documentaries when the following exchange took place:
Laura: Mum, have you ever had stitches?
Me: No, I don't think so
Ben: Yes you have, Mum. Remember? - you had stitches after giving birth to live young.
If that's not a statement to make a gal feel glamorous I don't know what is.
