TWO children have made it clear that a country walk is not acceptable if it does not include a café afterwards.
Luke Bradford, seven, and sister Sophie, five, have confirmed they are only prepared to put up with doing a boring thing suggested by their parents if they are plied with sugar afterwards.
Mum Emma said: “I thought it went too smoothly when I suggested the walk and the kids happily pulled their wellies on. But then I heard them chatting about whether to have their hot chocolate with or without marshmallows.
“When I told them there isn’t a cafe in the woods they didn’t believe me. Sophie explained to me that all things you do with children have to end with a café.
“Luke suggested he would compromise with a brownie if there was no hot chocolate on the menu. Now we’re all still in the house but both children are crying bitterly.
“I’ve said that maybe I could pack some apple juice cartons and Jaffa Cakes in cling-film, but they both looked at me in disgust and have taken their wellies back off.”
