...."Tis all relative..."

"conversation" between Michael and I just mere minutes ago - 
Michael "Aaaaahhhhhh!!!Aaahhh! Aaahh! AaaaAAHHHHhhh!!"
Mummy "What is it?!" (sounding alarmed)
Michael (in a teary voice) " I scratched myself and now it's BLEEDING!!!!" - lifting his shirt to show my teeniest tiniest scratch you've ever seen with the smallest smudge of red where the skin has been broken.
Mummy "That's NOTHING son. I push you babies out and then go to church the next day. REALLY."
(as an afterthought) "I'm sorry you scratched yourself"
