More pants

"When I am king," my four-year-old started up again. His brother interrupted: "You can't be king. You have to be born into a king's family to be king." The four-year-old looked momentarily disappointed. He thought for a moment or two: "When I am a policeman, everyone will wear pants on their head."

genius child - incisive and amusing at the same time - groom him for greatness, it will be time well spent.

Even Granny? What has she done to upset him? I came back from Monaco last week over-excited at having spotted Prince Albert.
"Guess what?" I said to Bea aged six and her friend Manon. "When I was in Monaco I saw a REAL LIVE prince."
"Yeah, whatever," said Bea. "We prefer princesses."

Pants on the head is a very boy thing. There's a TV ad for something or other that fulfils just that fantasy.

Ah, yes. But he's just about king of the hill, isn't he? :)

Very cute story.

I am sorry that you equate "policeman" with "police abuse". In the U.S., the vast majority of our police officers are just doing their jobs to the best of their abilities. Some are heroes. A few are villains.

But *most* are decent people trying to make their corners of the world a little better.

I'm sure that's what your son was thinking: the benevolent king/officer, not the evil one.

And of course two pencils up your nose and uttering 'wibble' - your son is an obvious Blackadder fan.

A genuinely good idea - the ad is for some kind of detergent Mr Appleyard - I hardly ever wear pants - oh no Ms Minx is here I don't want to start that going again!
