Oh that's so nice!

I love being around kids up to the age of 5. After that you can have them back.
I wish I was a glow worm. A glow worm's never glum. Cos how can you be grumpy when the sun shines out your bum?

Kids that age and up to about 7 and a half are marvellous. They are really interested in anything you say or tell them and are well behaved. Any older and they are obnoxious. :lol:

Had a chat with Mad on the phone to order a bear. He's a bright and cheerful morning person :D

In groups at any rate.
I help a boy of I think 14 keeping up with Latin and I know the teacher, who's a friend of mine, probably often curses the day she chose to become a teacher. I know I have when I taught classes at that age. And I've hear that this particular pupil is not an angel.
Yet when it's only him and me, we get along just fine.

It's the showing off thing at that age. When a kid doesn't feel the need to impress, most of them are pretty cool.
