Conversations With Megan

Megan has just turned eight.  We had the following conversation last night.

Megan:  There's a boy teasing me in my class.  He's calling me "Sweetie Pie" but all sarcastic.

Me:  Do you know what sarcastic means?

Megan:  Yes!  Like when you say "Oh yeah you look great" when you know they don't.

Me :  Yeah, like that.

(Sarcasm is rife in our house - my kids had to learn to deal with it and understand it very early in life)

Me:  *Gives the usual confidence booster/bully speech* Don't let anyone get to you, Megan.  He's the silly little boy for calling you names.  Insult  him back!  Thinking of something to say to him that will make him think twice about coming back and annoying you.

Megan:  What do I say?

Me:  Tell him to talk to the hand, hold up your hand like this, give a bit of the old attitude, then call him a Silly Little Boy.  Boys your age detest to be called silly and little and boys. 

Megan:  Oh! *pondering*....Mum, do me a favour...

Me:  Sure, Megan...

Megan:  Lick my bum and tell me what flavour it is.  Next Please! *holding the palm on her hand up with ATTITUDE*

Me :  WHAT?!!

Megan very quickly:  Like that mum?

Me : *laughing my arse off*  Yeah just like that Megan.

With much disapproval from her Daddy...

Daddy:  You can't say that!

Me:  Why not?!  That little bugger is calling my baby ugly names!  He deserves some attitude and an insult or two.

Daddy:  What if there's a teacher nearby. Then you'll be punished.

Megan whispering to me :  I still think its funny *giggle*

So did I...

This is what The Boerewors suggested:

Or to steal from that fine good bad movie Dodgeball - "L for love" as you press the L shape to your forehead.

I love it! My daughter is the same way with attitude. Though she has a potty mouth. Dad's always ruin the My hubby corrects me all the time. My daughter had a boy that was pinching her butt and I told her to kick him in the baby makers. My hubby was mad at

That is awesome. I so approve of the lick my bum thing.

Call me crazy, but I don't care if a kid gets in trouble for saying something like that at school. And I know that one day, because of this, I'm going to be the guy dragged into class by the teacher for something his kid said, and I'm going to laugh, and say, "Yeah, it was funny, and most likely true. What's your point?"

Ami said...

I think it's AWESOME when a child knows to stand up for themselves. And having prior approval from the parental units? PERFECT. No internal conflict.

Good for her. And you.

And she's a smart kid, isn't she?
