Mr Fluffy Bunny

J: Zach went off on his 1st school trip today, they've gone to Devon on an outdoor adventure week
A: oh it's one of those ones where you're not allowed to contact them by phone?
J: yes, it's very hard but I think Zach will be ok as he's used to being away with his dad, some of the kids have never been away from their parents before. It was so funny, Soloman who is quite a tough kid turned up with his suitcase and a huge fluffy bunny soft toy. I thought it was odd as not even any of the girls brought their teddies but then I realised that he brought it BECAUSE he's tough! He wouldn't have dared bring it if he'd been a wimp. He just stood there with a 'this is my fluffy bunny - any of you got a problem with that' look on his face
A: haha and I bet he added 'and by the way - that's MISTER Fluffy Bunny to you'

dater monitoring

S: So who were you talking to online?
J: Oh I was just chatting to Gabe. We have this schadenfreude thing going where we each compete to have the least worst dating experience.
S: Really?
J: Yes, though of course because he's a man and I'm a woman we have vastly different criteria as to what constitutes a reasonable date. For him, if he gets to have sex at the end it's a good date whether he likes the woman or not whereas for me it's a good date if I don't go home and cry...

J: Zach, why does it take me so long to get you to go to bed these days?
Z: Well you should try saying 'please'
J: Hey...I DO say please!
Z: Oh... well then you should try dragging me against my will then...
J: Gosh, I don't remember reading that in any of my books on parenting 'if your child won't go to bed, drag him against his will...'
Zach unable to speak or stand whilst giggling uncontrollably...
