shocking 6 year old


My little one has never ceased to give me heart attacks. Maybe a 6+ boy is meant to do that anyway. Just last week he got punched in school and came home with bloody lips. Then this week he tried his 'power' on a classmate, and got himself in trouble with the boy's mother (serves him right). When I asked him what he did, he said he jentik the boy on the hand :-). In return, he got a jentik from me, plus a ban to go to anyone's house for two days.

Yesterday he threw tantrum at his cousins' house, resulting in him breaking something, which, naturally gets more punishment from me. This time, it's a week's ban from visiting the cousins.

Of course when he feels like it, he'd be an angel. He'd offer to dry the dishes when I wash, or arrange his books neatly on the table. He'd speak sweetly to me and use all the magic words of 'please', 'thanks', 'good' etc. That, when he's fishing for compliments and rewards, or maybe to test whether he is still loved after being a naughty boy.

Today another shock awaited me at home. Since I wasn't the one who picked him up after school, I only found out when I went home. He excitedly announced "mom, I've lost my shoes at school!". I froze on the doorway, unable to believe my hearing. "What, how could anyone lose their shoes at school?" I said. He explained to me that during one of the lessons, they had to go to another room and were required to take off their shoes. When he went out of the room, his shoes were gone. Suddenly an image of a little boy walking barefoot in school gave me the giggle and I decided not to give him a long lecture of taking care of one's belongings . "I still have a sock though", he said, as if a sock would be of any use now.

yes..last time when we were to go into the computer room in school we had to take off our shoes.

Some have gone missing but found later coz classmate play pranks.

Boys are like that . Sometimes naughty something good. If they are good all the time, then something must be wrong already :p

your boy sounds like mine! my youngest went to school many times without schoolbag/shoes. once i dragged him out of the car and even the teachers felt sorry for him n tried to calm me down bc i was like a mad woman.

boys! but u know, it's good to keep an acount bc one day you can tell them what they did n they love those stories. i've kept my daughter's 'hate' letters to me and we sometimes read them and laugh together. wish i kept more of their stuff.
