Because Pearl and I ate out last night, and were late home, Fainjin was asleep by the time we got in.
This morning, just after 6 (the clock in his room really seems to be having the desired effect!) he appeared in our room. He blinked when he saw me, perhaps surprised that I had come home while he was asleep.
“Good morning Fainjin.”
He looked at me carefully. “You’re hungry.”
“Huh? Oh! No, sweetie, I had dinner out.”
“No, you missed dinner. There’s pasta. We kept you some!” He looked like he was about to go and fetch it for me, but I persuaded him I could get it (or something else!) when I got up.
What a sweetheart.
