This is an S.O.S message, hoping that someone out there will come to my aid!
My last daughter is fond of harassing and most times ‘assaulting’ me and her dad every morning with what she wants, be it joining one lousy club to paying to join a 10th club or even buying a novel or the other!
This morning, she came up with a flyer/brochure from her school that has to do with an excursion to Paris for 7 days, which is not even compulsory. Total cost of this trip is about 3,000USD.
The problem is not even the cost of the trip, it’s the fact that my kids know my stand on this group excursion thingy…I don’t do group stuff! As soon as she handed me the flyer, I gave an immediate reply…No! Her older siblings burst out laughing, chanting, ” I told you! I told you! Mummy will never allow you!”
“I’ll tell daddy. He’s the rich one!” My daughter said. Now that was an “Ouch” for me, but whatever!
“My dear, whether you like it or not, I still have a say in your life. Your daddy will never agree to anything without asking me!” I glared at her. Now that statement entered!
Now, this girl hovered around my door like a ‘dark cloud’! She kept opening the door at multiple intervals saying, “Please pay!”… Not funny anymore.
At this point, silence became GOLDEN!!
