Wednesday is the day that stepson #2 comes over to spend the night. I really look forward to it. He is a very entertaining 15 year old who gets on really well with eldest daughter. Plus they make me laugh by doing crazy stuff like msn-ing each other in the same room.
So today we are talking about blog camp, whilst I am also trying to make some valid points about internet safety:
Me (to stepson): "If I haven't texted your mother by Friday evening you can assume that I have gone to stay with axe murderers. Please instigate a search party immediately."
Stepson: "If you haven't texted won't it be a bit too late?"
Me : " Well .....yes maybe.... but you can at least come and recover my body..."
Eldest daughter: "Mummy..."
Me: "Yeeessss.....?" (sensing the direction this conversation is going)
Eldest daughter: "If you do die can I have the puppy?"
Me: "Well ....ok"
Stepson: (sensing an opportunity here) " Well can I have half your money?"
Me: "Only debts there my boy" (I say rather smugly, thinking I have foiled him)
Stepson: (without hesitation) "All your electrical equipment then?"
Me: (giving up) "Deal."
So thats all sorted then. I can rest easy in my bed tonight knowing that my affairs are in order.
