The boy with two brains

23 Apr

When Paul was 3 he discovered his scrotum.

It was a Saturday.

Not one to keep a new discovery to himself the conversation went something like this….

Paul: “What’s this Mummy?”

Me: “That’s your testicles, quite a difficult word isn’t it?

Paul: “No silly! It’s my other brain”

Never a truer word spoken.

On Sunday morning he woke up with a touch of conjunctivitis. Another new, and difficult, word.

It came out something like “conjunkyitis”.

Quite cute for something that oozes yellow gunk from your eyes.

I kept him home from playgroup until it had cleared up, not more than a couple of days, but long enough for him to practice his two new words.



We returned to playgroup a couple of days later once his eyes had cleared up. He was very pleased to be back and the playleaders, naturally, asked him if he hadn’t been feeling well. At which point, in front of several other Mums, my darling little boy announced, nay proclaimed, to all within earshot and several farther away who no doubt wished they were deaf……

“I had testicles in my eyes!”

If you are going to introduce two new words into your child’s vocabulary at the same time, be careful which two words you choose.

That’s my advice.

For what it’s worth.

What do you mean I only have ONE brain???!!

    What an excellent line! I’d have made my day to hear a kid say this at the school gates. Did the other parents laugh?

    Tee-hee! Good one Paul. You do know that he knew exactly what he was saying and only did it to embarrass you, don’t you?
