11 year old fakes being kidnapped to avoid parents evening!

A boy in Spain was dreading a planned parents evening.  He had not done well in school, so he anticipated a bad meeting. Fortunately, he came up with a brilliant solution:

Early on Monday afternoon the unnamed 11-year-old son of a Spanish police officer stationed in the north-western town of Xinzo de Limia sent a text message from his mobile phone to tell his father he had been kidnapped.

When his father phoned back, the boy confirmed the worst. He had been snatched off the street as he was putting out the rubbish, he said, and was locked in the boot of a car. He had no idea where his kidnappers were taking him, but knew that the car he was in was a blue Seat. […]

It was only two hours later that the boy’s father noticed the keys to a spare flat owned by the family were missing.

The child was soon discovered there and reportedly explained that he had been terrified by the prospect of his parents going to school to speak to his teachers.

My little action man

Josh, who has just turned one, has always been an active boy, never one for enjoying cuddles, he much prefers to be crawling or cruising around.  He’s recently discovered how to turn on our hi-fi and laptop which is a bit worrying!

In our house in Dibden we haven’t had stair gates as we couldn’t fit it to the bannisters.  Josh was very keen to go up and down the stairs so in the end we ensured that he was safe going up and down the stairs.  He’s now a bit of an expert as you can see from this:
