I didn’t get cross, she fake cried anyway

THE SCENE
I am nursing Eliza back to sleep, it’s past bedtime, and Anne has come in. She had a nap in the afternoon so isn’t tired.

ANNE: Mummy, can I have one circle crispie (I had been having a snack before Eliza stirred and put a bag of crisps on the table)?

ME: (Whispering) No.

ANNE: Just one circle crispie, then I’ll say that’s enough?

ME: (Still whispering) No, it’s too late.

ANNE walks off quickly. I get ready to unlatch Eliza as I know I will soon hear—

ANNE: *crunch crunch crunch*
