1) When you get pissed on.
And then you have to put a wash on so you’re punished twice.
2) When you forget it’s non-school uniform day/World Book Day/bake sale
They may have sent a reminder letter, email and message in the sky but you can’t be expected to remember everything.
3) When you tell your five year old you’ve run out of ReadyBrek and he says ‘for fuck’s sake’ under his breath.
Must’ve heard it at school.
4) Whenever you get a ‘gentle reminder’ to pay last month’s nursery fees.
5) When you’re on school pick up and the teacher says ‘can I just have a quick word?’
6a) When they’re in the bath by 3.45pm
Because when they’re in their pjs it’s ok to let them watch telly til bed. Right?
Any others that I’ve missed? Leave in the comments your Parent of the Year moments so I can feel reassured I’m not the only one not winning it but winging it.
