Virtual Mum: 1 Virtual Gran: NIL

Junior went back to school today ... peace, perfect peace! No 3am feed tonight - nor coping with one VERY tired, grouchy 14 year old virtual mother!! However, the weekend's experience has been a very valuable one. DD2 has really challenged my perceptions of her - we gently tease her about her chaos and general aversion to responsibility (particularly of the household task variety!). She has, however, shown a different side over the weekend and took on full responsibility for the 'baby', even though she was almost comatose with tiredness.

Her performance was assessed by the teacher this morning; despite being set on the most challenging programme, DD2 scored 100% for her care (She was so chuffed as with her dyslexia, dyspraxia and auditory processing issues, her scores seldom reflect her effort). She was soooooo proud! As for Virtual Granny, the baby told tales on me and flagged up that I had 'abused' him whilst placing him in the car seat (He's a blooming vinyl doll!!).

DD2: 1 .... Virtual Gran; Nil .... and a very restricted career as a childminder :)

I think you were robbed. At least you put him in a car seat which is more than some "real" parents can manage!!!
So glad Dd2 got the recognition she deserved. It does wonders for their confidence as we found with Emily.

Sarah, you are a soul! However, I reckon we both deserved our scores (and can't tell you just how bizarre it felt strapping a vinyl doll into a car seat!!!). I was at school today to see if we could get the ball rolling to have DD2 do her exams etc on a PC. School have agreed to the SENCO lead doing an assessment and I have to arrange an OT assessment (bit like a bus man's holiday but couldn't do it myself as would hardly be ethical but blooming tempting giving the potential waiting lists). Luckily I know an excellant locum who has worked in paeds before and can do the process quickly. However, have to say the school seemed pretty supportive. And DD2 was beaming as they commented on her growing fame as the only person to have scored 100% with the demonic plastic baby!
