Me sitting re-editing 400 images I already edited, but made a photoshop 101 error on, so I am sitting and redoing the editing, and not exactly loving every moment. Editing once is fine, editting the same thing again because you are a tosser, really is somewhat unsatisfactory.
Little voice: “Hello Mommy…”
Me: “Hi Connor, what’s up my boy…?”
Connor: “Mom, are you busy?”
Me: “Er, a little bit, what’s up Connor?”
Connor: “My fishing tank in my class has a leak, can you go to the pet shop and buy another one, and bring it to school now?”
Connor: “Please Mommy….. please …….”
Me – wondering how to argue with the fact that he knows I am not working. He knows I am at home, he has a fish tank leak, which I can offer little in the way of advise for. Can I actually say NO when he is obviously speaking on his teacher’s cell phone with her and all the kids listening?
The short answer is I went to buy a fish tank, a cover and some pebbles and delivered it to Connor’s school within 45 minutes of his call.
So that gets me a Mommy of the Week Award.
The part where I lose it, is that I had his teacher’s name wrong (not slightly, totally wrong). So could not find her class (as I had never attended a teacher-parent meeting clearly).
Fortunately only managed to find Connor’s class because he was standing at the front of the class and I was looking through the little glass window in the class room door.
