My toothless wonder, (also known as Rory), arrived in from school yesterday, and even before taking off his coat said earnestly,
"Mummy, I've got two bad things and one good thing to tell you."
"Riiiiiiiiiight. Give me the bad news first."
"Well, the first bad thing is that I lost the lid off my water bottle."
"That's not so bad. I can live with that.Go on."
"Well, the next bad thing is that I left my lunchbox in school again." This being, on average, a biweekly occurence, he quickly followed up with, "But I promise I'll remember it tomorrow."
"Okey doke then. So what's the good news?"
"Well, the good news is.." (pausing for dramatic effect), "that I've got no homework!!"
Then I was rewarded with this smile...so what could I do only smile right back?!
