Boy's germs indeed

I'm discovering that 5 is the age that they learn to twist information and use it to their advantage. Gosh, how did they learn to be so manipulative? You'd think that they're still the sweet babies you held in your arms not so long ago, not the little manipulators that they are.

My little boy was savouring a delicious looking cookie the other day I couldn't help asking him for a bite. Obviously reluctant to share, he quickly said "but, Mom, you'll get boy's germs!". Noticing the blank look I gave him, he quickly explained that in the classroom, the teacher says boys and girls are not supposed to touch each other. If a boy touches a girl he gets girl's germs, and a girl gets boy's germs. That means Mom is not supposed to have a bite of his cookie because Mom will get boy's germs. And he quickly finished off his cookie.

Hmm...boy's germs indeed. Funny thinking that he wouldn't miss a good night cuddle from Mom...
