It was with a heavy heart that I rifled through my paperwork to find the number for my home insurance. I was surprised that I didn’t know it by heart because since Twin Boy and Rabid Hound moved in I am remarkably good terms with Nigel in the call centre.
Education is ruining my son, they are learning about what things do at school and Twin Boy has decided he wants to be a scientist when he grows up. However after today’s experiment the odds of Twin Boy actually making it to ‘growing up’ seem a little bit limited.
Twin Girl wants to be a hairdresser and because of this she is often allowed to practise on her hair and is allowed to blow dry her hair following her bath.
Today I sat snuggling BB in her room, her skin moist from her nightly cleansing ritual and her mood mellow. I chose a story to regale her with and promised her beautiful things if she slept through the night.
Outside her bedroom door I heard the hairdryer blast and smiled as I pictured my eldest creating new styles that either Toni or Guy could be proud of.
Suddenly the hairdryer came to an abrupt stop and a curious smell reached my nostrils.
“Mummmmmy” yelled Twin Boy as he thundered towards BB’s room
I waited and then suddenly a head popped round the door and impish features grinned at me.
‘I done an experiment.’ he said in a voice marked with pride.
I looked at him, tension building and my hands started to shake.
‘I know what happens when you blow dry carpets,’ he declared with a tone of jubilation.
Hmm, tell me something I don’t know!
