It was a cold March day, Wife A had jumped in the car and high tailed it to Melbourne to see Return to Zero. This left Chubba alone, very alone and very frightened.
All parents must feel this... FeaturedWednesday, 25 February 2015 21:26 Published in Chubba's Pool Room Written by Chubba Be the first to comment!
Kid X wakes up, rubs her eyes and comes down to her parents bed. Jumps in, kicks dad continuously until he moves. Dad wakes and gets a little bit grumpy, sternly telling her to stop it. The non stop talking continues for 20 minutes until mum wakes up and gets a little bit grumpy, sternly telling her to stop it. Dad gets up and goes and makes some breakfast. Then it starts. “I don’t want to go to school today”. “Why do I have to go?” “Is today a short day?””The kid next to me got to leave early why can’t I”. Dad is tired and is desperate to make his coffee uninterrupted by the constant noise. Dad engages the conversation in the hope that his clumsily chosen retorts will somehow make it stop.
Thump, thump, thump! FeaturedMonday, 23 February 2015 22:09 Published in Chubba's Pool Room Written by Chubba Be the first to comment!
Thump, thump, thump- the sound that sends a shudder down the
spine of any parent who has their kids bedrooms upstairs. No it's not the sound
of the kids falling out of bed, that is more of a thud than a thump. It's the sad
sound of the kids walking down the steps when they are supposed to be in bed.
