This morning I had a slightly surreal experience.
Me: Right, I’m school planning, no one is to disturb me, okay?
I look pointedly at my youngest twin, who is verbal, excitable and absolutely scrumptious.
C10: Don’t worry mummy, I’ll not be disturbing you. I’m school planning too.
C10: A4 has asked me to teach her how to write so I’m school planning!
I glance over her shoulder. There in front of her are comprehensive school plans with a reward chart for good learning behaviour, and all manner of coloured stickers.
I’ve stepped into a parallel universe. Weird (but slightly wonderful as well). I go back to my school planning, which bizarrely includes plans for teaching A4 to write. Maybe they should be scrapped. C10’s look far better.
