DS (5) was watching Animal Planet today ... (yes, I am one of those terrible mothers that lets her child watch telly )
There was some program about wildebeest in Africa on and he was enthralled.
I heard him chuckle and then really kill himself laughing.
He came into the kitchen and said, "Mummy, guess what .... I just saw something really funny! There was this deer, right, and he was giving another deer a piggy back ... how funny is that, a deer giving a piggy back to his friend???" And off he went chuckling ...

Friend plus her daughter came round the other day whilst we were out. They were killing time looking at my pond and her dd witnessed, ahem, my frogs playing piggyback. I think she legged it rather swiftly.

Hope the dear thing isn't traumatised.

Our friend's youngest dd (6) asked dw and i how babies are made. We said "special cuddles" and left it at that. An hour later she bowls up and shouts, "can i see your special cuddle. WHY NOT??"

Hub2dee ... not traumatised in the slightest, how can you be traumatised by seeing a friendly deer giving a piggy back to his friends?????
