Golden Ticket..

You think we want the same things because what kind of parent would I be if I didn’t?We all know your goal..

School is best.

School is friends.

School is GCSEs.

School is success.

School is future.

This goal (obsession if you like) of school is yours not ours.

Our way doesn’t come with pomp or ceremony.

We won’t have that photo album.

We certainly haven’t got those milestones.

I know we don’t have what others have.

We definitely don’t have it all.

The uncertainty takes a mental strength that on bad days can immobilise me.(I learnt ages ago that comparison will actually do you in)

But then I only need to remember those days before.

So I smile and check in occasionally.

But I keep our secret that our golden ticket isn’t what everyone else’s is.

So we can pretend if it helps..

We nod, smile and go to the occasional meeting and answer your generic questions.

So what I’m trying to say is you can keep your Golden Ticket, it wasn’t what it was cracked up to be.(You were having us on)
