Guy Fawkes Night

Today started off well and we had a nice easy morning before school.

After school we had to take Munch for his Hep B vaccination, he was full of bravado until he saw the needle, then he screamed and I had to hold him still, anyway it’s all done now. Afterwards I don’t know what happened but Munch was in that mood were nothing is right, his whole attitude is stroppy, he did not have a nice word to say, he called us names and was generally very unpleasant.

When we got home he went and got changed, he came down and we practiced ready for his Connect 4 competition with Beaver’s tomorrow, at first he played nicely, then he got whiney and it was wrong if he won and wrong if he lost and was just nothing pleased. In the end I made him come upstairs and sit on his bed just so that I could try to talk to him, I told him to loss the attitude or else he could stay upstairs so that we did not have to put up with it, all the time I was talking to him he kept trying to be clever making funny faces and saluting saying yes boss and laughing. I asked him to stop and told him he could go down stairs, on the way down he kept laughing and acting clever, so I sent him upstairs and said he could stay there for a while.

When he was allowed down again he was told that if his attitude did not change the fireworks we had brought for tonight would be put away. He played quietly on the computer after that until it was time for the fireworks. We had a great hour and a half watching the fireworks and eating hotdogs in the garden. Munch had his job choosing which firework we were having each time, he ate 4 hotdogs!!! He earnt a star for behaving a listening well whilst we had the fireworks, so in the end we had a lovely night.
