I’m at work, anxiously awaiting news of her English GCSE result….My heart skips a beat when she calls…
Daughter: Got an A star.
This mother’s heart skips another beat….
Me: I am so so so so..proud of you !
Daughter: It’s no big thing mum.
Me: No big thing!? You got an A star!
I can hear her smile…
Me: Don’t pretend you’re not chuffed..
Daughter: Mmm.. ‘chuffed’..can’t say I’m familiar with the word mother.
Me: I know you’re pleased no matter what you say.
A long pause..
Daughter: I may have accidentally..
Daughter: Hugged a few friends at school.
