My gran whom passed away a few years ago was a huge influence on me growing up, more so than anyone else, she had these sayings one of which was 'once a man, twice a child' she would say in reference to my grampy at times, (in a light heartened manner, as this post is intended to be!) i didnt get it, for a long time i couldnt make sense of what she was getting at.
This morning i was woken at 6.23 am, (i know it was this time because i was cursing at the glowing numbers) my alarm does not go off until 7am, its an unwritten rule that disturbing me before then will be at your own risk, i heard raised voices and banging so thought i better go and investigate.
Threw my bathrobe on and headed downstairs, stopped at the bottom of the stairs when i realised it wasnt a full on argument, but rather there are the 3 of them in the kitchen all bickering over who ate all of the chocolate coco pops and the noise was cupboards being pulled apart looking for more.
I now think i know what she meant.
I turned around and crept back up to the bedroom before any of them noticed me and i got interrogated, after my alarm had gone off and i was up and about sorting the children out for school, i received a text:
"we need coco pops, did you have the last of them?"
Yep im definitley getting what she meant.
So im off to buy them now to prevent further crisis in the household.
