Every now and then our little ones wake up feeling unwell so we keep them off school until they are better and ready to return to their classmates. Jamster had a day off recently. He came into my room as soon as he woke and looked incredibly pale, complained of a headache and was a bit emotional; a sure sign he isn't great. I told him to head back to bed and that I would make sure his teacher was aware that he wouldn't be in.
The following day he was back to his cheerful self so I was happy for him to go in which was exactly what he did. I assumed that would be the end of the matter but apparently it wasn't! The day after returning to school when I dropped him off at the cloakroom the teaching assistant was there...
Teaching assistant: Did Jamster tell you what I had said?
Me: Oo what was that, I don't think he did.
Teaching Assistant: That the next time you go to Ibiza I need to come with you!
At this point I was feeling rather confused as I had no idea what she was referring to. I glanced at Jamster who was now winking at me and smirking. Once the teaching assistant went into the classroom I questioned him as I didn't want to appear rude to her not having a clue what she was going on about!
Me: What does she mean? Have I missed something?
Jamster: Oh, I just told everyone in my class that I wasn't actually poorly but we had a trip to Ibiza instead!
I then had to pop into the classroom to explain that we weren't on holiday (if only) and that he was honestly unwell. She actually found it quite amusing thankfully as did his teacher. It was a little bit cringe-worthy for me though!
He is such a cheeky chappy with a great imagination.
What have your children done this week to make you smile?
