This morning was my turn to take the kids to the school from the Boom-gate.
So there I was trying to remain calm amongst 7 rowdy children. Aidan’s birthday is coming up, so he was the main attraction this morning, discussing cakes and games amidst 7 screeching and excited, high pitched enthiusiastic and animated voices.
Then I heard this little voice saying: “Yes Lara, I don’t a want a boring present again, from you, like last year!”
I slammed on anchors, whipped my head around and boomed: “Aidan, that’s very rude. It’s not about the presents, it’s about all your friends sharing your birthday with you!”
Whatever……but I had to make a stand. We all know, the bigger the present the better….
But anyway, I was so embarressed. I’m blushing with shame even as I’m writing this 5 hours later. Kids ALWAYS let you down….
