Most nights when Nev comes home from work, he has a cuppa with me and then asks the children what they got up to during the day. The other night, Ellie and Harri bombarded him with all sorts of information and when they finally stopped chewing his ear off long enough to take a breath, Nev asked "who made you two so brilliant?" They both looked at each other, cheeky little grins on their faces and yelled "Mummy!!"
Ho ho - what more can I say? It's not completely true mind you, but a little pat on the back goes a long way for us home schooling mamas!
