Today is one more sleep and then it is school holidays.
Am I scared?
A little… and that is a rookie thing to be. Scared, not a rookie at parenting.
The first rule of parenting, or taking care of the children, is that those snot-flickers can smell fear. It’s part of their DNA, so we can’t really blame them. It’s mother nature’s fault.
Back to first rule: Do not ever tell your children that it is a special day and that they must behave. Something ticks over in the brain and then there it is. The glazed look and twinkle in their eye … CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.
“I will do everything opposite to what my lovely parent has asked of me”
Said in an evil whisper.
