What Fred Said About Pins and Needles and Tablets

Like most of us, Freddy is succumbing to the winter germs and has come down with a bit of a cold.  He has a good way of explaining his symptoms!

Freddy: I have a sniffy nose and a sniffy mouth.
Me: What's a sniffy mouth?
Freddy: It's when your lips go all dry and lumpy and you have to lick them.

He had a conversation with his dad at bedtime:

Freddy: I don't understand about these peas and needles.
Ian: I think you mean pins and needles.
Freddy (slightly agitated) : But what about the peas?

***

Freddy got a bit peckish at suppertime:

"Mum, can I have tasty treat in bed?"  He thought really hard before adding with growing enthusiasm: "Like tomato soup, or porridge or a banana!!"  (How nice to hear that the things he considers as 'treats' are all so healthy!)

***

This morning I woke up with a rotten headache and said that I needed a tablet before I could get out of bed. Freddy ran off and some moments later returned with his Innotab.  "You can have my tablet mummy!"

***

Freddy was making up songs and singing them to us.  My favourite lyric was most definitely:

"Everybody says the X Ray shows your bones at the doctors!"

***

Freddy is enjoying his new friendships at school and one very, lovely little lady in Reception has decided that she wants to marry him.  I was talking to Freddy about how cute that was when he suddenly gasped and said:

"Oh no, I've just remembered that I was going to get married to Snow White instead!"

He also has forged a really close friendship with a really sweet little lad in his class and I was delighted to hear Freddy tell me that he had told him he was his "number one mate!"   

I couldn't be happier with my decision to send him to the little rural school and not the big school in town. He is doing so well, bless him.
