Being Aidens mum

It’s fun.  Interesting to say the least.

This morning I went upstairs to take a shower and when I came back down there was a kid in the hall asking for Aiden. I called him but turned out he had gone off to his friends 3 doors away so I sent him away. 5 mins later another knock on the door. This time it was Aidens ‘girlfriend’ Nadesh; “Aiden is over at the guys house and doesn’t want to stay with me, tell him to come home pleeease”

I told her Go get him yourself, aren’t you his girlfriend?

No she refused and said You’re the mummy, you get him.

Then we stayed arguing over who should get him or not and it turned out she also have another boyfriend but he’s younger (!!) so not in the mood for him today. So we ended up going together but Aiden was determined to stay with his friend watching a movie and then he shouted after her Go and play with your other boyfriend who you kissed behind a car!!!!

Nadesh got upset and we left…

True puppy love but my god, they’re only 6 and 7. I obviously took her side coz we’re girls 😉

In the afternoon we went shopping. It wasn’t Aiden going in shops with me, it was the other way around. He took me to the Fred Perry store, Diesel, Vodafone and some others because he wanted to check out the kids clothes. He also knows the sales girl at one of the shops (why?)

I get seriously confused, I don’t know if I should think it’s cool or disturbing. I had none of the things he has or even knew about them at the same age….and it’s not because I’m old, it’s just things are moving so fast I guess.

On the way home he said; Thank God for nuns. Where else would poor kids live? I think becoming a family in church is bad, it breaks families. Look at you…look at aunty Maryanne..look at, well who else……yeah Jennifer Lopez.

Try to listen to a 7 year old reason like this and not laugh!!!
