Lionheart

My Youngest is a little Hero.
Husband and our friend T took four children between them to the local swimming baths. I was Noticeably Absent, having lunch with Eldest and friend.
On coming out of swimming pool and crossing the car park, Youngest and T came across a possy of Youths. Larking about. Smirking. Talking loudly and Watching. Girls, all Snarls and Lipstick, leaning against wall. Two boys were fighting. Not really at it Hammer and Tongs, but looking rather Menacing. One pushed another into the hedge surrounding car park.
Youngest watches this in Total Disgust.
Points at the largest Youth.
'You,' he says Very Loudly and Sternly to the Miscreant, 'Are Not Playing Nicely.'
And with that walks on to the car. Little four year old back tall and straight.
Youths scuff the floor a bit with shoes. And move on.
Youngest. You rock.

How gorgeous. Can I bagsie him for my little one?? Sounds like a Mother-in-law's wet dream...

Robynn's Ravings said...

Youngest INDEED rocks. Out of the mouths of babes issues wisdom.

Elaine said...

As Liz said - never too young to be a pillar!

They are always looking for magistrates, you know - although perhaps it might clash with his loo-blocking committments...

Tatersmama said...

Children learn the way they should go, at their mothers knee.
So you both ROCK!

Good for you!

Strawberry Jam Anne said...

A hero indeed LWM - we need lots more like him. But you won't make him wear his underpants over his trousers will you? A x

Mary T said...

That's so sweet, what a little guy. Anti-social behaviour terrifies me, good on him!

Mum Gone Mad said...

Good lad, and brave too! Glad they were appropriately abashed :)

Troy said...

...and next week in school we shall learn about "Citizens Arrest" before having some practical homework.

Some mindless moron vandalised my car in Eastbourne earlier today - where was your son when I needed him?

Crystal Jigsaw said...

Don't you just it when your kids show who's boss.

Maggie May said...

What a brave little man. We need more in the community like him.
Watch out in the future you naughty guys!

NaomiG said...

Awww, so sweet. Did your heart nearly explode out of your chest, I know mine would have... can we loan him to the UN?

BT said...

What a fantastic tale. How brave he was and how right. Go you son.

Mum's the word said...

I like your young man.
You've taught him well.

P.S. Apologies but I've tagged you in my last post, Mary Poppins

Far Side of Fifty said...

What a kid! You must have been so proud of him! Loved the last poo story also..I really enjoy your stories! :)

Ladybird World Mother said...

Oh thank you all for those lovely comments! Sorry to do a cop out and one comment fits all... life is BUSY. But I really appreciate these lovely comments. One day Youngest can look at this blog and read all your comments. How cool is that. And he will see what a Dude he is.
Not tonight, though. Little so and so was Cross. And let us all know about it.
Thanks again. XXX

Tatersmama said...

Hey girl...
I'm missing you. Is everything okay?
