Fatty Fatty Father

On Friday evening, Eddie comes home, immediately heads for Sean, and in mock anger, goes, "Where's Seanie boy? I'm gonna smack his backside! You know what he did this morning?"

Brian and I keeled over in laughter when we heard what happened.

Right after morning drop-off in class, Eddie hears Sean making conversation with a friend while hanging up his coat.

In a voice loud enough for everyone (incl teachers and other parents) to hear, he said, matter-of-factly, "Philip, you know, my father is verrrry fat. He's even fatter than Santa Claus."

Ed couldn't get away from school fast enough! Fat guys can be fast :)

Hahahaha!! typical diplomacy of a 5-yr-old!! But maybe that will motivate Eddie to get trimmer??

Yep, Eddie's new year resolution is to beat the bulge...but so far this year he's yet to go to the gym.

Mon, Sean is 6 lah! Where these kids get their sense of humour hah?? (complains this victim)

Lilian said...

Yup, he's 6 and would be in P1 now! Horrors, seems like such a baby still.

Actually, Sean wasn't even making that Fat Dad bit as a joke...that's the scary part, he was just making conversation. Makes us wonder what other tales (better not be about me!) he's been telling in school.

Ohh.. Sean would be in p1 now? I kept thinking he was the same age as RK and Bryan.

Lilian said...

Yep, he would already be in P1, I find it hard to believe too!

Lilian, wow... good reason not to cook anymore. Just get Ed to eat bread and salad every day!

Lilian said...

Wait long2, he'll never eat salad. He's a carnivorous omnivore with a rather spoilt palate who also loves munching on sweets and titbits.

I'm just glad he's now the target for all the fat jokes/remarks going around here, so I'm off the hook for a bit.
