Day before school goes back ...

Postby mothra » 04 Feb 2018, 10:37

.... and my son is, already at 10.30, having the very most impressive of tantrums.

Hat? There's a hat?

I'm on coffee number two.

Progress report:

We have isolated a rainbow trilby.

Update:

Son - mortified

Rest of family - hysterical laughter




Next step, drink bottle.

The latest:

Looks like we're stuck with the rainbow Trilby. What ever happened to the other 4 hats he has.

I swear, at no point in the raising of my daughter did i ever think ... even for a moment:

"Jesus, i hope she survives to adulthood."

With the boy, i just hear "ouch" ... from all directions. All of the time.

And i still have her upper primary hat.

You could always offer him that as an alternative to the Trilby.

see, your problem is that you give him options. Mine is told what hat he has to wear to school, and that's it. No discussion. Any attempts at complaint & I suggest he explain it to the principal .

Daughter's hat wouldn't fit his oddly misshapen head.

Child is 11 and in a men's medium.

He's only got one fabulous option now, to our endless amusement.
