I’ve tried dropping subtle hints, and I’ve tried leaving him to his own devices. Neither strategy was particularly successful. So this year I’m taking the approach of telling him exactly what I want, and I’ve just pinned the following to the fridge:
07:00 geekdaughter will be in
07:30 Wake geekson, if not already awake
08:00 Make geekdaughter’s pink milk
Make her breakfast
geekson Milk (9oz bottle with 2 sachets Gaviscon)
When that’s all finished: geekmummy’s breakfast on lap tray
Chopped up apple and pear with yoghurt over the top
My “surprise” present 😉
09:00 geekson Breakfast
3 tablespoons “Creamy Porridge” with leftover milk from bottle. Use blue milk if not enough in bottle.
Warm 30 seconds in microwave
Mix in half a pouch of fruit puree.
Toast with butter as finger food
10:45 Take geekdaughter swimming
I probably won’t make him suffer for too long, and will surface long before he has to take the geekdaughter to her swimming class. I am hugely looking forward to this though 🙂
