No Grey Here – Tues 19th May 2015

By | May 19, 2015

Before I get to why I’ve chosen this title for today’s blog, I have to mention just how absolutely, totally and fantastically excited D is about her birthday tomorrow!  It’s lovely and really quite contagious.  She’s alternated between constant smiling and high-pitched squeaking because she’s so happy.  Made all the more lovely because she’s been counting down, she has been telling random people who we usually only smile and say “good morning” to on the school run and it makes all those years that she didn’t recognise that it was “her” day worth it.  

But back to the “grey”, it stems from a comment made by T on the way home.  He informed me that when he has children, he’s not going to lie to them like I have. Which I have to admit completely threw me.  Apart from the “just a minute” invariably being 2 or 3 minutes at times if they’re baying for something, I wasn’t immediately aware of anything.

Luckily (for me) he had an explanation.  T meant that when he’s a father (not yet please), he’s not going to say that there’s a Father Christmas, Tooth Fairy or Easter Bunny.  Or any other fantasy figure.  Because, as he said, they don’t exist.

Fair enough.  For T, who’s mind is set on a straight path of black and white, there is no grey, I can completely understand where he’s coming from and there were times in the run-up to Christmas that he was bursting to tell D that the “Elf On The Shelf” wasn’t real, but he thankfully didn’t.

I admire his honesty, the way that his mind can stay focussed but it would be nice if a little grey crept in now and again.  Those little traditions and folklore figures are what makes life fun.

Either way, I’ll relieved he hasn’t told it as it is to D, as yet anyway.   Just as well there isn’t a “Birthday Bunny” or similar because that may have been quashed today!

Anyway, I wonder what time our squeaky songbird will wake tomorrow? I hope everyone’s day has gone well Jx
