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*
