So Mr Pebbles has lost all power at his office so he’s sent everyone home for the day as no work can be done. Initially I was thrilled to have him home mid afternoon on a week day as this is a minor miracle. The thought of having help with tea, bath and bed was just too exciting.
I think I also wanted him to witness that weekday parenting isn’t all easy when chores need to be done, homework finished and tea eaten with 2 very very tired children ….. however it is this afternoon!!! The children have played by themselves since we walked through the door. No bickering, no snatching, no pulling/pushing/crying etc etc etc so Mr P and I are sitting here with our
feet up wondering what to do with ourselves when he comes out with:
“This parenting malarky is easy isn’t it?”
No, no, no, no, no it isn’t, but he just won’t believe me !!!
