It’s the night before Beth starts High School and this is the row currently going on in our house:
Phill: “Mum and I are taking you to school tomorrow”
Beth: “Haha! Oh my God imagine if you did!”
Phill: “I’m not laughing. Why do you think we’ve both taken the morning off work?”
*Beth sits and looks at us both with a cold, horrified gaze of disbelief*
Beth: “You’re not.”
Phill: “Yes we are.”
Beth: “You can’t! No you can’t it’d be so embarrassing”
Phill: “Look at least we care about you! Just think how many children don’t have parents who care at all.”
Beth: “If you care then you won’t ruin my life by walking me to school. If you love me you’ll listen to me and I’m telling you I DON’T WANT YOU TO WALK ME TO SCHOOL.”
Phill: “Well sweetie, I don’t want you to grow up and go to High School but it’s happening isn’t it? So…”
*Beth looks at me*
Beth: “Mum please I’m begging you, pleeeease don’t let him walk me to school.”
Me: “Baby, I’m coming too, I’m carrying that balloon.”
Yes….we bought her a ballon haha!
Wish her luck!
Disclaimer: We are NOT walking Beth to school….we aren’t quite that cruel.
