It’s an age thing

Signs that give away you might have grown up. Or, at least, that you are in the process.

  1. You turn on and off the light switch in your room –and in any other room for that matter- to turn on and off the light in that room and not just for your personal pleasure.
  2. You are starting to think that maybe you weren’t born to pee and poop your pants. You murder the thought after 5 seconds.
  3. Your pictures are starting to mean something. In a really broad sense of the word ‘meaning’.
  4. You can browse the pages of a whole children’s book without necessarily tearing them. ‘Necessarily’ is the key here.
  5. You wouldn’t trade your toys for a new Tupperware’s product anymore.
  6. The idea of not sleeping for two or three nights in a row doesn’t turn you on anymore.
  7. Most of your friends are attending nursery school.
  8. When you climb on all over the table and start turning around the vase, the thought that you actually might end up in the floor hurt, slightly crosses your mind.
  9. You hang out with younger people than you.
  10. You start wondering for the first time whether there is a  life without pacifier. Only to admit that there isn’t.
  11. You catch yourself singing the alphabet.
  12. You catch yourself touching himself.
  13. You apply your own dress code. No wonder where ‘mix and match’ came from.
  14. You kind of speak. ‘Kind of’ is the key here.

Did something wrong

I just spilt all of my milk on my clothes and the sofa. Mum is starring at me, as if she is trying to grasp what has just happened. Mum, sorry, but this is exactly what you think and exactly what it looks like.

Three little pigs: A different story

It’s actually the famous kids story told from my point of view, the daughter’s of the family (4+) point of view. Or, maybe, a portrait of its characters. A psychogram. Let’s start…

First pig: We get it, you are lazy. You took your lesson – at least you didn’t try too much for it.

Second pig: Well, the thing is that you did try more but it only got you so far. Here is the conclusion: aim either high or low. There is no ‘in between’. Average will get you nowhere.

Third pig: In short, the definition of the ideal child, the one every mother would like to give birth to, with the exception of his own that kicked him out. Nerd but alive.

Wolf: Actually, hunger is a bad advice.

3 pigs together: Hell of a team!

Mother pig: She has her own methods of teaching life lessons to her children. And she surely doesn’t suffer from empty nest syndrome.

House made of straw: Eco- friendly and natural built. Strong thermal and energy waste due to bad insulation at building process. Not to mention that, even if wolf didn’t finally blow it down, a donkey or a goat would probably eat it.

House made of wood: Its static adequacy is yet to be proven. Fire, storm, twister and wolf’s lungs vulnerable. The sandwich-house of the story: luckily for it, it‘s so wooden it won’t have to attend therapy during puberty.

House made of bricks: It is always affiliated to a pig with a civil engineer’s know-how.

Chimney: The real hero of the story. It is always affiliated to a cauldron of boiling water.

The story’s writer: A recluse -nothing is really known about him. Rumors have it that the face of his mother saying to him when he was 17 years old “now that you have grown, it’s time to live on your own” is haunting him ever since. And it shows.
