Swings+roundabouts=parenting


On the same day that one of Amber’s bennies on a bus got so out of proportion that the bus driver stepped out of his cubicle and told her to be quiet as he was trying to concentrate on driving a bus (the Lovely Melanie wasn’t sure if he was being serious or merely trying to scare Amber; if it was the latter he did it completely dead-pan) Millie got the latest in a line of glowing reports from her teacher, Mrs Childs, at parents evening, saying how well she’s doing and how much they enjoy having her in the class. 🙂

(Phew, was that sentence too long?)

Well done, Millie.  Not so well done, Amber.

Oh, that reminds me.  When getting Amber ready for school the other day I noticed that her hair needed a brush putting through it.  Then I noticed the hairclips: One. Two. Three. Four. Five of them.

I removed those and commenced combing but there was a terrible knot in the back of her hair.  Nope, not a knot.  Another hairclip.

Six.

And another knot… Nope, another hairclip.

Seven.

Amber doesn’t like to do things by halves.
