This is LM’s ‘I am not amused face’:
So as you may know it was LM’s birthday on Tuesday. On the Wednesday we were having a builder friend come round to give us a price on some work that we need doing in the house. We were trying to get the place looking halfway decent, which I’m sure you all know is like fighting a losing battle when you have kids! So while I was cleaning the bathroom Dadi took it upon himself, whilst tidying the living room, to pop all of the balloons that were getting under his feet.
Nothing was said when she got home from school, but when we sat at the table to eat our tea she started having a go at me. ME! saying that I was cruel for popping all her balloon when E&Ff’s were left to burst by themselves. Why am I always the bad guy? You can be assured I set her straight and dobbed Dadi in right away!
Luckily for Dadi he was on afternoon shift so wouldn’t be home until well after bedtime. But LM was obviously not happy to leave it till the morning and decided she needed to vent her frustration and wrote him a very sternly worded letter.
I am writing this letter to complain
about the fact that you popped my birthday
balloons only after one day (stern face picture)
I am not amused by your behaviour!!!!
I would like a face to apology and
a chocolate bar for compensation!!!!
Please do NOT do this again (E and Ff had theres for a week)
Yours sinserely LM
Being ‘that mother’ who looks at everything as a learning experience I noted that apart from some minor spelling mistakes she wrote this very well and managed to show how she was truly feeling. Honestly though? I had to try not go giggle at her as she tried to think of big strong words to use as she wrote it. But even she could barely keep a straight face while I tried to take her picture. It took a dozen attempts for her not to burst into chortles while trying to look stern!
What was Dadi’s reaction when he got home? Do you think he felt terrible for upsetting his youngest daughter. Do you think he was awash with guilt and lay awake all night thinking about it?
Did he heck, he laughed so hard he had tears in his eyes. Plus he kept giggling to himself and shaking his head until bedtime. I believe he did apologise half heartedly the next morning and swore not to do it again but alas poor LM still hasn’t had her bar of chocolate.
Have your children ever been annoyed at things you have done? Have they ever written you a letter or just ‘had words’ with you? let me know b
