Maxi’s probably coming down with the virus that’s floored the rest of her family over the last fortnight: she was asleep in bed by 8.30pm (she’s normally being scolded for still reading at 11pm. Like both her parents before her…). Anyway, when the kids are asleep and I check on them at night, I’m in the habit of covering up any exposed cold bits with spare duvet cover whilst whispering, “Tuck, tuck, tuck; goodnight Princess”. Tonight Maxi replied clearly in her sleep, “I think, I think, I know who I stink, I know who I know”.
I’m surprised my giggles at her sleepy ‘poetry’ didn’t wake her up.
