Dinner is now done, and
sorted
The home is all quiet, and
dull

Of course, not
you..
my angel dove

Lets race some cars?
Bump squeakies?
No? Oh well
Oh

So, do you want to play with your ball?
thought so..okay
sure, sure

How can mum deny her bun
after all, and after all

All done?
Time to sleep!
Still no..?
Alright

Tickle, tickle, bounce and
clap!
Hey, hey hey
Don’t jump
on your daddy’s tired back!

Woah! Look, he swings you up and
down, up and down and
up!
Wow
ick
….tock
…….tick
………..tock

Okay.. hush now
Shh go to sleep, sweet

Daddy shuts an eye
What? You want to do some reading?
No
Oh
Then what, cars?
again?

Super, now
you want to read
Ha !
When will we sleep?
Maybe tomorrow

Hey, watch it..that flap will.. tear!
torn
and
gone

Everything,
every thing
Mumma will definitely pull out her hair

That’s it
Your bedtime story is complete
We have done every dance
Please now, it’s time to dream

Yes!
Now is my chance

..Goodnight, my love.
Sleep tight
..and long, please?

Crinkle

Crinkle

Crunch

Chew

Loud cries!

Yea, Thanks dear
ofcourse nevermind, Mumma
She just had her first bite.
