Harry who?

This story is going back a few years when all my boys were still young. My eldest was 7, middle son was 5 and the youngest was 3.

As you can imagine, at that age – 3 boys in the house, it can get very noisy! So getting them to just sit and be quiet for one hour is absolute bliss. And I really needed that hour to put my feet up and relax.

Let’s try a movie, I thought, what would they enjoy… I know Harry Potter. All kids love Harry Potter.

So I call them.

They all come running in, pulling and tugging on each other. I must have interrupted their wrestling practice!

Come and sit down, let’s watch ‘Harry Potter.’


Eldest child replies

I don’t want to watch ‘Harry Cooper!’


Second child agrees

What? … ‘Harry Copter?’ … I’m not watching ‘Harry Copter!’


And obviously the youngest has to have his say

Yeah!  … I don’t want to watch ‘Heli Copter!!!’


(Wow, my kids would be so good at playing ‘Chinese Whisper’.)
