Most parents are a lot more stressed out about what goes on at the school playground, they panic over minor bumps or general injurys but I am a much more of a relaxed ‘whatever’ kind of parent..
I have always been a firm believe in that to avoid tears and a tantrum is to just stand up and brush it off and it has actually helped prevent potential melt downs, I am also one of those people who laugh when something humors happens during a bump, and when you have more than one child its usually caused by either one of them..
Sometimes its both of them together..
Back in 2016, Amelia and Kai had just started going to school together, she had just entered into Reception and he was in year 2, so during the play times at lunch or at break they would still be playing together in the Key Stage 1 playing area of the school, occasionally I would get the trusty red letter home saying either one of them had to have a cold compress on their face/arm/leg and all went into the bin as it wasn’t worth saving.. but the one that DID need saving was this one..
‘Bumped into brother’
I couldn’t help but laugh, they both had been running around like headless chickens and collided together and both came home with a note which said the same thing, ‘Bumped into..’ it was a shining moment in our life as a family of more than one child, a humors thing to laugh at and they found it pretty funny too and its now proudly placed onto our fridge as a little reminder of the time two like minded chickens didn’t look where they where going and made mummy laugh.
Have any of your children done things that have just made you laugh? I think I am secretly hoping I am not the only one who cant help but chuckle when a minor accident occurs..
Forever slightly evil..
