How I Nearly Made An 'ass' of Myself

When Mister A came home from nursery last week looking a little bit down I asked him what was wrong.

"Mummy, nursery said something mean to me," he said in a saddened tone.

"What? Who's said something, what did they say?"

"They called me a donkey and said I had little legs." He then preceded to pull his 'sad face'. Heart-breaking, I know.

Not really thinking about it I was all ready to call the nursery to find out what was going on. After dwelling on it for a little while though, and going ahead with some further 'questioning' - it seems that he's been selected to play the donkey in the nativity play!!

And the little legs? They'd been practising singing 'Little Donkey' all week!

Imagine if I had actually gone in to the nursery about the 'name calling' - they'd have thought I was a proper idiot - especially after the the time I took him there on the wrong day!
