Aoife arrived home from school with a letter. To celebrate Valentine’s Day the children are to write about their special person, who it is and what makes them special. The special person will then win a meal for two at a lovely local eating house.
I asked Aoife who she would nominate, “who is your special person?”
“Maggie and Rose” she replied. The twins from her class at school. I’m not going to lie, I was miffed. Maggie and Rose? REALLY? And the reason? She likes to play schools with them.
I could play schools. Oh they are lovely girls, really they are but they’re 4, they aren’t going to appreciate a meal for two.
I’ve finally made it on to the special person list and this makes me happier than I thought it would. I asked what made me special, which of my wonderful parenting skills push me to the realm of special? More special than Daddy, Grandma, Grandad and everyone in reception class.
