Monkey: But mummy I don’t want to watch the news
Me: This is very important, which is why we are watching it
Monkey: Well what are they all doing?
Me: They are all voting on whether they accept the deal the Prime minister has put infront of them to agree to leaving the EU
Monkey: Why are we leaving?
Me: I don’t know monkey, its a massive shit storm
Monkey: Mummy you said a bad word, you need a time out and to apologise
Me: I am sorry I said a bad word, I wasn’t thinking
(I also got put in the time out)
Monkey: So why is it the bad word storm?
You can imagine this took a large amount of time to explain, without using swearing
