Di­ary Of A Bad Dad

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your VIews -

Ay­oung mum has re­ceived a bit of a beast­ing in the me­dia af­ter it was re­vealed she billed the mum of her three­year-old daugh­ter’s friend £325 af­ter her child came home from a play­date with ink on her boots.

I do feel a bit sorry for her but only be­cause she had to share a sofa with Piers Mor­gan. On ev­ery other level she got what she de­served.

But it has made me a lit­tle bit ner­vous about any po­ten­tial play date for Tod­dler­na­tor the Ter­ri­ble.

He’s not a bad lad, but he is mis­chievous and hard as nails, which is not a good com­bi­na­tion to be let loose in some­body’s else house.

I can imag­ine the day when I come home from work and I ask Mrs T how did his play­date go. Ashen faced she’ll re­ply: “He came home with a bruised and bat­tered leg... and we don’t know who it be­longs to!’’

I won­der what the go­ing rate for that is!

The other day I watched him walk into a door and yell ‘ow!’.

I rushed to his aid say­ing: “Are you all right, son.’’ He turned, gri­maced, then burst out laugh­ing.

The same sit­u­a­tion with his sis­ter would have re­sulted in 10 min­utes of hug­ging and kiss­ing it bet­ter and choco­late.

I don’t think even man flu will get the bet­ter of him.
