When I am eating a potato, I don't want you to take it off me to remove the hair ball. I am enjoying it. Hairs and all. When I am standing in the sea watching the waves, I don't need you to take my vest off. I like to get wet sand all over me. When I am driving along in my chariot and I am people watching, don't faff with the hood and put it over me - you are ruining my view. And when I nod off in the car seat with my head at a dislocated angle, I don't appreciate you straightening it for me. Mummy, when I have spent all say eating nothing but nectarines, don't take the seventh one from me and give me a 3 course meal. If I wanted a 3 course meal, I would ask for one.
And Mummy, when I am trying to get to sleep, stop stroking my chuffing cheek. OK?
