The other day TomO and I got into a discussion that loosely revolved around what it was like being a parent.
It was an interesting choice of topic given he is most unlikely to become one anytime soon.
So I took the opportunity to tell him like it was; one of the most rewarding things you can ever hope to do. But added it was a bit like herding sheep sometime…
How do you mean, he asked, with a sly grin on the corner of his mouth.
He knew all too well what I meant.
Yes, sudden deafness when asked to switch off the iPod, or getting ready for bed at a reasonable time, and did I hear you say homework.
Yeah, herding sheep, I mused…
And too highlight just how hard herding sheep is I pulled out this great photograph of him doing just that a few years back!
