Shona: "Mammy can you make an outfit for school tomorrow?"
Me: "For tomorrow???? That doesn't give me much time, what kind of outfit?"
Shona: "Its for a play in school"
Me: "For tomorrow??? Who are you in the play?"
Shona: "Not really sure, Its either a Prince, a Cook or Custard. I think i'm a Prince and then a no body"
Me:"Are you sure you need it by tomorrow? Okay, will give it a go"
half an hour later, glitter glue stuck to my hands and face, cardstock cut into bits for a crown, dinner burning in the oven....
Shona: "Mammy, you're doing a great job, I love you"
Me: "I love you too babes, just give me a second while i stick this ruby onto the crown"
Shona: "Can you come to the play tomorrow?"
Me: "Oh babes, not sure with work, what time is it on?"
Shona: "I dunno"
Me: "I'll talk to your teacher tomorrow, but not promising anything, ok?"
Shona: "Ok, love you mammy"
Me: "Love you too babes"
This morning, I eventually found the teacher and told her about all the fun we had making the outfit about nearly eating glitter for tea and how Shona said she was a Prince and then a no-body, which of course i thought was so funny
Mrs Patterson the teacher: "....but Shona is the Cook "
The moral of the story, next time make an outfit for a Prince, a Cook and a bowl of custard!
