I’m scared very scared.
My little girl is growing up, on paper she’s actually only 5 but I’m not so sure. This past week she’s been to her friend’s house after school for dinner and that same friend has been around ours for dinner. Now I’m sure I wasn’t that young when I started doing that.
The subject between the two of them of sleepovers has already been raised and so far we’ve put it off but it won’t be long, once again I’m sure I was about 10 before I stayed round a friend’s house.
So far not too bad I guess.
The next worry is she wanted her own phone! Now of course I asked who she would phone. Without a thought she replied her friends and of course Teddy…silly Daddy. Luckily we came to the agreement that she should be 10 before we thought about her having a phone. Now this one I am confident I was about 16 when I got a phone and it was for doing well in my exams.
How long is it going to be before the Dad’s Taxi service starts? How long before I get the 1am calls asking for her to be picked up from some club because they missed the bus?
What comes after that? Dad I’d like you to meet my boyfriend?!!!! Ah maybe I should ban boys now.
Dad can I borrow the car? May be it’s time to sell the car now.
Possibly the best thing for us as a family to do is to win the lottery and move to our own island.
