Always guaranteed to get the brain cells going, this weekly challenge has become something to look forward to. Now that I have reduced my working hours to 3 days a week it has been fantastic to have time in the week to do things for myself. Today I have been to the gym, sanded and glossed a doorway, caught up on housework and bills. Oh yes, done some planning too for school and uploaded some comments to our class blog. It would be very easy to spend all day every day on teaching related things and I am having to be really strict with myself not to; otherwise what's the point of working part time?! I feel full of beans and ready for the rest of the week to come.
Anyway, I digress. Here is this week's effort:
“Can I have some sweets ?”
“Now, what’s the magic word?”
“Ummm...Can I have some sweets PLEASE, Mum?”
“Not just now, you’ll spoil your appetite. Not long til tea time. You can have some after, OK.”
“What about that biscuit YOU just had, wont that spoil YOUR appetite?”
“No, because that was a special biscuit.”
“And what about that chocolate bar you were eating in the kitchen?”
“Well that was my pudding from lunch time. Off you go now”
Out of the mouths of babes, huh.
I couldn’t really decide how to go about this one- the above is almost verbatim conversation with my son (now almost 13, then 5ish) Watching the Beeb's Outnumbered the other night was in stitches over yet another "that is so true" moment. This isn't a patch on that, but it was the intended effect.
