Life just doesn't get easier as you grow up, as one mother and son discovered early one Monday morning.


There's no part of a mother's obligations that is worse than getting her child out of bed and off to school on time. The woman got up, and packed her son's lunch but when his alarm rang, he switched it off, turned over, and went back to sleep.

The son crossed his arms stubbornly and cried: “Give me two good reasons why I should go to school!"



The long-suffering mother went upstairs and knocked on his bedroom door and was greeted with a sleepy groan.

"Son? It's time to get up..."

The son pulled the pillow over his head and said: "I don't want to get up...It's too early..."


The long-suffering mom patiently replied: "No honey, it isn't, it's 7:00 am, and it's Monday. You know what that means."

"No...! Please no, mom! Please?"

"Come on son, wake up. It’s time to go to school!”

The son whined: “But why, Mum? Why do I have to go? I don’t want to go.”



The mother, starting to lose her patience with her lazy son demanded: “Give me two reasons why you don’t want to go!”

The son sat up and pondered. “Well,” he said. “The kids hate me..."

The mother countered: "I love you son, that's all that matters, not what the children say about you."



The son pouted sullenly: "But mom, the teachers have it in for me, they all hate me too!"

"Nonsense," cried the mother "Snap out of it, get up and get dressed."



The son crossed his arms stubbornly and cried: “Give me two good reasons why I should go to school!"

The long-suffering mom replied:

“Well son, for one, you’re 52 years old, and for another, you’re the Principal.”

Sadly, for some of us, the challenge of growing up can be quite daunting...And that's no joke!
