Early this morning Imani wakes & comes banging on our door & the following ensued.
“I missed you baby, why did you sleep before I got back?”
She answers, “it was night”.
“Ok, I bought you a lot of things including juice & doughnut”.
“But you didn’t buy me glasses, phone & lip-gloss! Daddy, I want my doughnut & juice now not later”
“Which juice?” King asked, feeling like one that had all the options.
And she thought for a moment & asked “did you buy Hollandia?”
“Then why are you asking me?!” She queries
*With children, have all the possible options (or answers) ready if you are going to be a Father Christmas parent as they will request for something out of the blues and you will be left in shock at the end of the day.
