Dolly and I are lying in bed this morning, after she woke me up AGAIN in the middle of the night.
Me: Would you like a cuddle?
Dolly: No, I would like a rice cake
Me: You can't have a rice cake in bed
Me: What would you like to do today?
Dolly: Eat rice cakes
We both continue to stare at the TV in silence.
Dolly: Mummy, you are my best friend (said while stroking my cheek)
Me: Really? (I say with an air of disbelief, but I'm secretly thrilled)
Dolly: Please can I have a rice cake?
