Overheard whilst putting the girls to bed….
N: Charly, when you wake up (in the middle of the night) to go to Mummy & Daddy’s room, wake me up too okay? I want to go too.
C: But you don’t wake up. You keep sleeping and sleeping and sleeping and sleeping.
N: I will! You just have to try and wake me up. Ok?
C: I can jump on you?
N: How about you try tickling me? Try to tickle me awake.
[Fast forward 10 minutes. Naomi is asleep and Charly is still tossing and turning, trying to get to bed. I’m still sitting in the dark.]
C: Mummy? Can you go away? I want to tickle Che Che.
Me: No Charly, go to bed.
C: [Very disappointed] Awwwww….
