As I picked up my nephew from school today, he told me about his day and how he had a party in class with ice cream because the school year is over in two days. I said cool because today we could also celebrate the end of the primary season. Yippee! We hi-fived and I explained why this was so important because it was to do with the future of the country and it was historic etc etc.
My canny nephew, seizing a prime opportunity, said “So can I stay up late to watch it?”
What could I do? I’d talked myself into a corner through no effort on his part and had to agree. He’s now allowed to stay up an extra hour until 10pm. Yikes, these kids grow fast.
