A day in the life

Good morning sweetheart, time to get up.
Come on, get up.
Look at the state of your room!
No, you can't have ice-cream/chocolate/sweets for breakfast.
Yes, I know it's Christmas.
Yeah, I am evil, you're right.
Have you brushed your teeth?
Have you really brushed your teeth?
Brush your hair it looks like a bird's nest.
Don't put your hairbrush on the table.
Whose is this?
Why have you left it in the middle of the floor?
Put it away please.
I said, put it away!
It's freezing cold today so put something warm on.
It's not a fashion show, just dress warm.
No, I don't know where your socks are.
I can't hear you.
Still can't hear you.
STOP SHOUTING AT ME! WHY ARE YOU SHOUTING AT ME FROM ANOTHER ROOM? COME IN HERE AND TALK TO ME!
Yes, I know all your friends have one.
I'm not interested in what your friend's parents say.
I'm not having this conversation with you again.
Yep, I know I'm really uncool.
Life's not fair, get used to it.
No, she's not here I'll pass the message on.
What do you fancy for lunch?
No, I'm not buying a McDonalds.
Yes, I know they eat them three times a week but maybe that's why they're fat.
You're just a fussy eater.
Why have you left that?
Put your plates in the dishwasher please.
Oh, are you leaving that for the slave?
Why am I the only person who tidies up around here?
Ok, they're going in the bin.
STOP YELLING AT ME!
Well just put them away then!
Shall I run you a nice warm bath?
I'll be in for a chat in a minute.
Did you have a nice day?
Ooh, you're all nice and warm.
Come and sit with me and have a hug.
Time for bed.
Come on, I've let you stay up late.
Look at the state of this room!
Tidy it up and I won't say how messy it is.
I love you too.
I love you more.
Goodnight sweetie.
