The other day I was questioning the kids about what they had done with the child-minder. I did actually know as she had told me, but I wanted to hear what they had to say:
Boy: I was so bored that I couldn’t breathe….
This is turning into our typical conversations, I know for a fact that they had the most amazing time, which in part, involved going into the woods and building dens! How many children get to do that? I have never done something so adventurous with the kids, so I know that they would have had the time of their lives.
I think it’s a way of making me feel guilty for not being there and also avoiding having to talk. Children are funny though aren’t they? I wanted to write this down to remind me of the conversation for times when they really are bored!
