Impossibly Early o'clock:
(boy comes bounding into bedroom)
Alex: Happy birthday Shane!
Alex: Come on, get up! We've got presents for you.
Shane: Ugh. Ok.
(I get up and I head for the bathroom)
(The boy had meant for me to head downstairs with him - immediately)
Alex: Where are you going? You don't need to brush your teeth yet! You haven't got any plankton on them!
I smile. A good start to another year.
