We often have Amber and Millie for a Friday night "sleepover" and its always a pleasure to have them stay.
However, one Saturday morning, I was tidying the table for breakfast, when I noticed the word Millie had been written across the plastic tablecloth in large children's writing. The problem was it had been written in biro.
Obviously I was not very pleased and confronted Millie.
"How did this writing get on my plastic cloth?" I demanded in a stern voice.
Millie gulped and said, "It was put there by accident."
Well....... I ask you! The pen jumped up and wrote Millie's name by itself!
Shortly afterwards, I noticed a piece of china on the draining board. Problem was, it was a broken piece of china and the mug that it was broken from was nowhere to be seen.
"Does anyone know anything about this broken piece of china?" I asked.
It was obvious that the children had nothing to do with it. I could tell by their reactions that consisted of complete lack of interest and no trace of guilt.
Harry ambled in. "Oh that," He said. "It just sort of fell off the mug."
Now who is he kidding? Telling me a large chunk of china just fell off a mug by itself!
Is he learning from the children do you think? Or are they learning from him? Thats what I'd like to know.
