I’m sure I’m not the only Mum who doesn’t allow her kids do homework on Sundays – Saturday is the ‘cutoff’ day to do all outstanding homework. 

I must not set my eyes on my kids doing their homework on Sunday, or else they will see my wrath! But trust my last daughter to test my limit. She thought I had retired for the night, only for me to catch her trying to do her homework. 

Immediately, I ordered her to bed. I was surprised she didn’t argue with me. All she said was that she wanted to get a glass of water. I believed her and settled down to watch a late movie. 

Minutes passed and I thought I should get a ‘slimming agent’…if you know what I mean. I strolled to the kitchen and who did I see buried deep in work?… Yours truly. She had no idea I was taking shots. 

Lol! Some mothers do have ’em.
