Reasons why I am an Evil Mother, Part 2

Maths Camp
I am an evil parent. 

A week or so back, we were invited to go on a very lovely weekend press trip. I could have told my daughter about it right away. But where would be the fun in that? 

So instead, I told her we were going on a really fun, super exciting trip to MATHS CAMP. 

At first she didn't believe me. But once I'd taught her the official Maths Camp song she started to believe I was actually serious. It's a great song, too: 

Maths Camp, we're going to Maths Camp

We're going to have such fun, fun, fun 

Maths Camp, we're going to Maths Camp

And we'll do hard sums, sums, sums 

Poetic, I am sure you'll agree. And as you can see from the photo above, Flea was pretty psyched about Maths Camp.

Anyway, last Friday morning, disgustingly early, we arrived at St Pancras Station where I broke the news that, actually, we weren't going to be going to Maths Camp after all. As you can see, she took the news pretty hard.

    Bad Mummmy! Great Vlogger though 😉 I’m quite excited just looking at the video, how over the top would I get if I actually went – hope (no, know) she had the time of her life!

    Shame about missing Maths camp though – maybe you can do that next weekend. (btw – I teared up a bit when watching her hear the good news)

    I’ve told her we can always do maths camp any weekend she chooses. She looked at me like I was bonkers.

    Awww! This SO reminds me of when I took my daughter there for Christmas. She was about the same age as Flea is now, and it was magical! Of course, we only lived up the road in Paris at the time, and she was actually born in Lagny which is just round the corner from Disney anyway… but it was no less magical for that. I just love Flea’s face when she found out. Brilliant!
