Who said revenge was sweet?


Yestersay was the first day back to school for my children and Ben was a bit tired and grumpy as a result. When he was told it was bed time he wasn't happy and tried to ignore me. When I got cross he stomped up to bed and proceeded to mess instead of getting undressed. Eventually I got so cross I told him no story or CD, (he has been listening to Rudyard Kiplings Just So stories each night on a CD given to him by his Grandpa). He started to cry but I refused to give in. When I went to check on him later the door was blocked and when I managed to open it a little I found him asleep on the floor. If this is his idea of revenge I think it is more unpleasant for him than me!
