Saturday is Designated Lie-In Day, and yet no one has told the Kinderbeast, who awakens me at at 5:30am. He declines my weak entreaties for him to return to bed, and instead settles on the sofa in front of the TV. Yes, we parent the best. I return to bed. It seems that everytime I drift back to sleep he returns: “Daddy, I want some breakfast.” “Daddy, can you tuck me up please?” “Daddy, I’m thirsty.”

After some hours of this I admit defeat and get out of bed.
