School Holiday Anecdotes

Yep, it's that time of year again when I'm tearing my hair out with the kids at home for 6 weeks. However, occasionally they do make me smile......

Mrs T is driving back home after meeting up with old college friends. Master Jacob and Master Ben are sitting in the back seat......

Master Ben; Mummy?

Mrs T; Yes?

Master Ben; How come your friends look much older than you do?

Mrs T screeches to a halt, flings open door, jumps out of car and raises fist in air in manner akin to Andy Murray beating Roger Federer....

Mrs T; YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS!

------------------------------------

Mrs T is driving back from a tennis tournament. Master Jacob and Master Ben are sitting in back seat...

Master Jacob; Mummy, is it true that Blondes are dumb?

Mrs T; (A very short pause) Yes. However, they do say men prefer to have "fun" with Blondes - although they always marry Brunettes.

Master Benedict; What's a Brunette?

Mrs T; A Brunette is a woman with dark brown or black hair.

Master Jacob; You've got black hair Mummy.

Mrs T; Well it's dark brown really. With a little grey now.

Master Jacob; Oh, that just looks like light reflecting off your head.

Mrs T screeches to a halt, flings open door, jumps out of car and raises fist in air in manner akin to Andy Murray beating Rafal Nadal.....

Mrs T; YESSSSSSSSSSSS!!

Blimey, I love those kids; I've taught 'em well.

Ho hum.
