So I just got a call from my eldest daughter (five and a half going on 21) who has been sent to the principal’s office at school.
But fear not, she isn’t following in her father’s stellar yet somewhat wayward footsteps with regard to the schooling system. Instead, she got an award for her writing.
This is her second such award – the first one was for writing LOTS of creative stories. I can’t tell you how cool that is.
This one is about her new bunkbed and how she’s sharing with her little sister but she has the top bunk.
She’s taking the whole “being the big sister and being responsible” thing quite seriously which is so lovely to see. There’s the odd slip, but she’s just loving it. She’s even making her little sister welcome in what was previously Her Room And Sanctuary, so that’s cool.
Now to get her little sister to sleep through the night without demanding to go back to her room (which now houses the computer). It’s a work in progress.
