My Daughter gets the bus home from school on her own now, which is lovely for me as no more going out in the horrible cold weather.

Thinking I am SuperMum

This afternoon I am sitting here working and my phone pings with a text from my Daughter as school had finished, so I think it is going to be can so and so come around or can I go here. No, it says she has lost her pencil case and more importantly it had her 2 expensive drawing outliner pens she uses for her art. I know losing her art pens will be traumatic for her as she loves her art.

So I ring her up to find out what has happened, her pencil case went missing after one of her lessons and she had looked everywhere, told her Tutor and told student reception, I give her the what have I told you about taking your pens to school. I tell her to go to the bus stop and get the bus and I will phone school. They said they had spoken to my daughter and hopefully the cleaners will find it tonight.

While I am waiting for her to come home I am rushing about trying to find some pens (that work), pencils, pencil case etc, feeling sorry for her.

She walks in so upset and I said have you looked properly in your bag, she says yes she has looked in it loads of times and had it all out, so I have a look and put my hands straight on her pencil case.

I swear this child looks with her eyes closed.

Now do I leave telling school and deny all knowledge of her finding it, or do I ring and say she has found it.

She did have a lecture though on what to take to school and hopefully she has learnt her lesson, I need to get my own back somehow x

    Ha ha! This made me laugh. I remember moments like this when I was a kid. My Mum could always find things I thought were gone forever. It’s a Mum superpower!

    I am hoping it has taught her a lesson about taking her art pens to school, they are expensive. It wouldn’t have mattered too much if it was just her pencil case and normal pens.

    I’ve had loads of moments like that with the boyfriend. Involve loads of lectures on my part and nods of understanding from him. Can’t say I’ve never done it myself at that age.

    This is just like my 10 year old son. Just the other day he couldn’t find his homework and was convinced that his 4 year old brother had but it in the bin. And I looked in his bag, and there it was, even though he said he looked in there abut 5 times

    Oh dear! She must have got herself into such a state, panicked and just didn’t look properly. Hopefully, it’ll be a lesson learnt. Quite a funny story though if you don’t mind me saying!

    It is fun especially when they can not find something you have no idea where it is or what it is x

    Sometimes it seems as though stuff has an invisibility shield and it doesn’t matter how hard you look you just can’t see what you are searching for, I do sympathise with your daughter it can be so frustrating not to be able to find something.

    I think that was the case this time, as she got upset and got into a panic, more for her art pens, told her to take them out of her pencil case now and leave them at home x

  • Laura Hartley 3 years ago Reply

    This sounds like me all over!!!! I would always do this and it’s so embarrassing! I’d just ring the school and tell them she found it but don’t mention how 😉

    I have just kept quiet, she can just say she found it and leave it at that x

    It is so nice to hear it is not just my daughter, I do think she got in a bit of a panic as she was really upset over her art pens, that she just could not see it
