Impressed with DD's headteacher's cunning!

Headteacher has been on a mission to stop kids being late all year. She has been nagging and sending letters but some kids/parents still resist.

DD has come home today with a 'prize' from the headteacher (awarded to all the kids) - it's a black case with XX School - Excellent Behaviour Award printed on it. Inside is an alarm clock!

Not sure it will make a difference to persistent latecomers but you can't say the head hasn't pulled out all the stops!

Ha ha! Nice try...

The joke will be on you though if your DD is anything like mine. She will set the alarm tonight for Sparrow's Fart tomorrow morning, then blissfully slumber through it whilst you stumble around the entire house in your nightie blearily wondering what the hell that fucking noise is and hoping it isn't the smoke alarm.

You will subsequently discourage her from using it.

It's staying downstairs in the toy drawers or else that's exactly what will happen!
