A Bendigo mum and full-time name juggler has once again demonstrated her uncanny ability to shout out the names of all her children except yours. The incident occurred at dinner when the mother allegedly bellowed, “John! Sarah! Emily! Tom, whatever your name is, come get dinner!”
“It’s like a high-stakes game of musical chairs, but with names,” said 10-year-old Emily, the second eldest, who claims she sometimes responds to the wrong name just for funsies.
Experts are baffled by the mum’s selective amnesia, with some speculating that she has developed a groundbreaking new technique in the realm of parental forgetfulness.
Despite the confusion and occasional identity crisis, the mother remains unfazed.
“It’s all in good fun,” she chuckled, blissfully unaware of her offspring’s collective eye rolls and exasperated sighs. “I just want to keep them on their toes. Life’s too short to remember everyone’s name correctly, right?”
