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….
