I was pushing the kids along the footpath in the double pram when we had to slow down behind an elderly man who was struggling along in front of us.
"Mummy, he's not letting us go past!" came Alex's indignant shriek.
"It's ok, we will in a minute," I stage whispered. On getting nowhere with me, Alex turned his attention to the gentleman, and in an exact mimic of his dad's exasperated in-traffic exclamation, let loose with, "Oh COME ON, dude!"
Even without his hearing aid turned up the 'dude' had to have heard that. I'm just glad Chris keeps his language G-rated when encountering frustrating traffic scenarios!
