To think DS should stop doing drama club......

......he has either a 15 minute car journey or a 6 minute train ride to school. If it fits in with something I'm doing, I give him a lift, which he loves. I said I would today, then my plans changed.

Cue sad, reproachful, more in sorrow than in anger routine. I said "on come on, DS, I'm not murdering puppies" to which he responded "Yes you are- the puppies are my hopes and dreams" grin

I think he is in the running for a BAFTA!

Lol, did does drama club too and the 'well, it's fine if you ruin my life, I won't complain' looks about minor stuff are hilarious. Last one was after Christmas when I said she'd have to take ALL her Christmas presents to her bedroom, up a whole small flight of stairs, by herself!

No, 6 minutes train, 15 minutes car.

I was just being amused about over dramatic teens. Thought it might give someone else a smile........

How could you joke about murdering puppies?

I think it's too late. My 7yoDD can already do the full on drama (albeit not quite so eloquent) without any coaching - you may as well embrace it and enjoy it grin

grin. Tell him it will give him more time for his latte and cinnamon swirl!

I for one rather like his response. The boy's got some style. smile

Excellent!

You are stamping callously on the puppies of his heart you awful witchy parentwink

Just discovered he'll have to get the train home too- the friend he often gets a lift with isn't at school today.

Cue more murdered puppies........
