“All art is autobiographical; the pearl is the oyster's autobiography”

Just a very quick post today as something has come to my attention and it needed to be documented so that it can be used in the future as us parents definitely need ammo for when our children find the love of their lives. Yesterday we had loads of things to do around the house and we needed to keep Opeie as occupied as we could for short periods of time so i went rummaging through my crates of toys that Seth doesn't know about (yet) and found out the Batman toys.

Opeie according to his Nanny Roo is a lot more boyish than Seth was at his age. He is very boisterous. Today was no exception, with his playing anyway. Batman and the Joker were having a good old Scrap. What made today's action figure play time stand out from all the others though was that while he was bashing the characters together and making cute grunting and roaring noises he was donning Mrs M's peal necklace which he had refused to take off for about an hour.

Those who know me would probably say 'just like his dad' which i don't mind at all. I'd be the first to say I'm in touch with my feminine side and over the years Ive had a collection of questionable outfits, what can i say i thought i was something of a trend setter back in the day ,cutting edge in the world of fashion. My friend Chris recently told me i "dress weird". Again i am Ok with that. I'm proud of my boy and if he wants to swan around in a pearl necklace no matter what age he is he will have his dads backing.
