Homework woes.........

Why are men such forgetful dipsticks? It seems to be an affliction shared by all ages of the male species.  On the way back from swimming yesterday H managed to let it slip that he had 'forgotten' his homework for the past two days. Cue a major rant as L and her pal tittered in the back of the car and 'I's wee boy gave me a row for not being kind.  This was due to the fact that I was threatening cancellation of his birthday party. Now this is Wednesday and reading is due to today so no reading done. Spelling due tomorrow so to avert panic I dropped a line to the teacher, apologising and explaining he had the memory span of a goldfish and could she remind him to bring his spelling home.  I suppose there is an excuse for him as he is only six however his father is another matter.  A man who is good at his job and it is a miracle.  The last business trip away saw him having to drive another sixty miles as he got thirty miles from the house and realised he had forgotten his notes. This morning he realised (thankfully) that he had forgotten his wallet a mile from the house. Too much, too early, he escaped out the door as I launched into an morning rant about the forgetfulness of the male species....

It is reported today that  Justin Bieber (that chipmunk faced singing squirt) has allegedly fathered a child after a fumble in a toilet with a groupie. Heaven forbid. Really the mind boggles.....
 
Happy birthday to me. Slummy Mummy Blog was one year old yesterday.....
