Having a wake

Babess was reluctant to go to bed tonight.  Already in her pyjamas, but feeling bright and chirpy, she scurried to the rocking chair and climbed in, burrowing into its depths in a futile attempt to evade The Dad.

“No!” she ordered.  “I not having a sleep!  I having a wake!”

Then she fixed him with her version of a terrible glare and uttered the most devastating words she knows – and has only learnt very recently: “You not my friend!

We swallowed our grins.

“No,” he said gently, “I’m your Dad.  Time for bed!”
