The Latest Escapade!!

I got that sinking feeling when half an hour before school finishing time, their number showed up on our call minder system!  I didn't feel any better when the caller announced that it was Little Prince's Teaching Assistant!!  Oh boy what has he been up to this time!?!  It turns out that over the weekend when he was playing with his friend C at C's Grandparent's pub (literally across the road from our house) they found a pile of cigarette butts.  Little Prince wasn't content with just stamping on them and kicking them about, he had to pick a still burning one up and "smoke" it!!! Luckily he doesn't actually know how to smoke and just blew on it, phew!!  When confronted about this in the Head's office, he immediately confessed, and said he doens't know why he did it, he just puts everything in his mouth, which is very true!  He and C got a telling off from the Head, and were told their parent's would be informed.

Little Prince emerged very subdued and contrite from school, he realised immediately that he wouldn't be playing out that night and didn't even ask if he could.  I had a quiet word with him once we got home, but told he wouldn't be shouted at any more, and that I just wanted him to realise the dangers of putting anything and everything in his mouth.  He promised he wouldn't do it again - which he probably won't, he'll come up with something else instead!!
