Last night my son was putting scotch tape on his nose. I have no idea why, I try not to analyse the workings of the male brain, especially a 7 yr old male brain. So, back to my story...for reasons known only to my son....he was putting scotch tape on his nose when his father walked into the room.
"Don't do that Michael, it will give you brain damage."
"Oh Daddy, my brain is already damaged."
Now I have never said his brain was damaged, all I ever say is that the testosterone in his body somehow affects the brain waves. Some of the synapses don't quite work right, at times.
Do you think he can call me on this when he is older? Do you think he will be telling his therapist this in about 20 years?
One of my goals as a parent is to make sure my kids have plenty of stories to tell their therapists one day. I believe this goal will be achieved, no problem!!
