because that’s the kind of giving mother I am

24 Oct

A child who has gone to bed at 5.30 pm and woken only to tell you that he needs dry sheets and a new set of pyjamas, probably isn’t going to kindy the next day.
And so, with a smile on her face, and goodwill in her heart, a mother once again shelves her plans.

    I understand you perfectly:

    The smile on your face is merely clenched teeth, and “goodwill” is where you’re thinking of dumping junior, right?

    I’m a parent; I know these things.

    Sentiment correctimoso, but I hadn’t quite made the stretch to the goodwill dump. That’s very good. I might use that one again if you don’t mind.

    I hope you’re planning on writing a parenting manual.

    This is the manual.
