At home – Bobby the elf continues to cause chaos…
Off to watch Dx play rugby this morning while the others enjoyed a lie in at Matt’s. Dx wasnt sure he WANTED to play rugby this morning but brightened up when he heard they were going to start doing some contact rugby and they got a chance to push each other over. I am amazed for a little boy who is a bit of a wimp about a lot of thing – that he seems more keen on contact rugby at present than tag rugby. We will see if it lasts!!
In the evening he went to his rugby Christmas party. Matt dropped him off and I went to pick him up two hours later – only to discover the organisers had been trying to ring me for an hour and a half to say Dx was really upset. It turned out Matt had told him I would “be there shortly” which he had taken literally – and then got himself into a state when I didn’t arrive.
It really upset me – that he had been there worried and sad for so long AND that it could of course been so much worse and been an even more important message might have got lost. When I got home after reading the older boys the riot act it turned out the volume had been turned down on my phone for them to play on it. My password has now been changed and they are banned from using my phone as it is too too important for me to be contactable.
