Things to never say to a 7 year old before they go to sleep.......

Well, apart from obvious things like
"make sure you don't dream about the Cybermen, you know how that makes you have nightmares"

But maybe I should also add:
"Daddy needs to be up early tomorrow so I'll make you a deal; you have to make sure I'm up. If I'm not up by 8:30, I'll give you a pound for each ten minutes I'm still in bed".

Of course, I'd also recommend that if you're going to say something as stupid as this it would also be a good idea to not stay up till 4am messing around with i-tunes, music backups and the coding on the weblog.

In the end it cost me £9.
And today we somehow miraculously ended up in the toyshop with £9 burning a hole in Molly's pocket.

Tonight she casually asked me if I wanted to be up early again tomorrow morning and maybe we should do the ten minute penalty thing again.
I declined.

    I'd pay Bertie a tenner for an hour and a half lie in!

    Glad to hear she's doing well.

    Gareth thinks you'll like the Go Go Ninja Dino song from here:

    Seems ages till Molls birthday otherwise we'd have bought it for her.
