I have been walking with DD to the bus pick up point for school since term began. I regularly ask if she wants me to stop as no other parents do it but no, she like me there, I'm funny she says. (I am a bit funny....)

Today she informs me that this is my last week. She doesn't tell me why only that no, no one has been nasty to her.

I've had a ska/reggae weekend and I've got the Liquidator in my head possibly because it was used on an advert which was the last thing I heard before I went to bed last night. I moved my head in that *I'm listening to music you can't hear* way and she hissed, don't you dare dance Mum... Ahhhh! Maybe I inadvertently moved in an inappropriate way for a middle aged parent one morning... Oh dear, I'm so ashamed.

The tortoises belong to a a little playmate of her's. Our scary neighbour's daughter.

Thanks ~R~. I like loads of stuff really loads but of that genre I would say ska has the edge for me... Must admit to not having heard any Third World in a long time though.

She used not to mind, in fact was proud to have weirdo dancing parents with a large wrong way round age gap. I do understand though. Poor old BS, she used to consider him so cool with his self confidence and charm and his motor bikes.... She even treats him like an embarrassing incontinent old relative now! She's OK when it's just us though, you can tell she loves the way we think and speak and dance..

God alone knows how she must squirm about some of the people we know.. She must wish the Earth would swallow her up some days... : )

I don't do it deliberately George. The most innocent of conversations that I have with another adult in front of her are somehow now excruciatingly embarrassing.. Good job she's never heard me discuss bondage techniques.. : )

I don't even have to try cariadus, my existence is enough.

The sequel: DD was very late to get milk teeth so she still has about 8 to lose. One has been very mobile for weeks and sure enough when she got home from school yesterday the tooth was carefully wrapped in a tissue. Last night she wrote a note to the tooth fairy and left it under her pillow, or so we supposed. When I woke up at about 5 this morning (I'm a terrible sleeper, too much bad parenting on my conscience!) I remembered that the tooth fairy had put down his can of Carlsberg and fallen straight into bed last night without carrying out his fairy like function....

So at 5 this morning BS was poncing about in the dark with a £2 coin and trying to find the tooth. We might be embarrassing parents but at least I tried to explain at 6.30 that it must've a been a new tooth fairy who didn't realise that the tooth was in the pocket of the Teddy's pyjamas, guarded by C'thullu and a string of heart shaped fairy lights and left the money anyway so DD wouldn't be disappointed.....

My point? Maybe she's not as grown up as she thinks she is and maybe we aren't the worst parents in fairyland...

Keep dancing!........ <3
