Thomas is being asked to do his homework. He is not happy about this and has come up with a novel and very scary solution to the problem.
“Muuuum, I don’t want to go to school anymore. I want to do homeschool instead.”
David interjects, “She was serious when she said no, Tom.”
“But Muuuum, I really want to do homeschool.”
“Not happening, Tom. Do your homework now please.”
Sulking, “No. I want to do homeschool.”
Beginning to get irritated, “Fine, then I’ll make you do 2 lots of maths and spelling every week.”
Perks up, “OK!”
“I was KIDDING!”
Sadly we’re not being permitted to enjoy the funny side of this, he’s gone into a full-blown sulk and is stomping around the house saying “If you won’t homeschool me, I’m never going to do my work.”
ETA: Adam decided to prove to Tom that he needed to do his spelling homework. Putting on his stern voice he said, “Right, spell September.”
“….That’s right. But you still need to write it down!”
At least now we’re laughing. And Tom is doing his homework.
