Trials and traumas of a full-time mum in Dubai

Mad and evil times

with one comment

So, in addition to English, maths, Arabic and goodness knows what other subjects, five-year-old DS has started studying history at school.

Mad and evil - or medieval?

Mad and evil? Maybe.

“Do you find it interesting?” I asked.

“Yes… but I’m a bit scared of it.”

”Why? What’s the problem? What bit are you studying? You know, like Romans? Vikings?” (he knows these from Horrible Histories).

“It’s scary because we’re studying the MAD and EVIL times!”

I suppose a quip there – in light of what happened in Paris last week – would be to say: “That’s not history; that’s current times,” but he’s only five. I settled with telling him he meant “medieval”.
