Never Enough Sleep
This morning I was woken at 5.46am with a toddler stretched out diagonally across my bed, and with my 6-year-old daughter sitting forlornly at the end of the bed.
"What's the matter?" I asked. "I can't get into your bed," she said. So I moved over and she got in and as this is a pretty frequent situation and I never get enough sleep I told her, "One day, when you're a teenager and want to stay in bed all day I shall get my own back and come and wake you up."
"You'll forget," she replied.
