Am I really that grumpy?
A few days ago at 08:10 our house was in it’s usual hurried state of affairs. ‘Please get ready for school’ I asked Pops countless times whilst I changed the baby’s nappy (again)! I went upstairs to find her building a lego tower. She never plays with her lego, so why now? A light telling off and eventually we get out the door.
Fast forward to the return journey. On the way back from school I pick up Pops. ‘Mummy, when we get home can I get out my making box please?’ Her response when I asked her why was, ‘I want to make you a reward chart’ again I ask her why. ‘If you can be not grumpy for a whole day you get 20 stars, if you get up to 139 stars you get a treat’!
