Ok, I’m fed up referring to my children as my son and my daughter so I’m giving them monikers. Henceforth (she says, sounding all posh) my son is The Monster and my daughter is The Minx. Or Minnie the Minx as I usually call her because she’s a dinky wee bundle of mischief.
I do just want to clear up that though my son can be a handful and slightly monsterish, he is a fabulous wee boy with so much love to give. He would tell you he is not a monster. He is a four year old boy and four year old boys can’t be monsters. Or monkeys. But he’s still my little monster, so Monster it is.
