I love you very much.
When I have spent the day making up your new bed, finding your lost scout shirt, picking up and throwing away a sack load of rubbish (including numerous tissues) and broken toys, sorting out your clothes and shoes, washing your dirty laundry and sweeping your bedroom floor it would be really nice to receive a thank you not a full blown strop like a toddler tantrum.
I do appreciate that you've been away all weekend, camping in the fresh air, getting lots of exercise and very little sleep but surely a thank you takes a lot less energy than a toddler tantrum.
I'm so glad you woke up in a good mood this morning, I told you an early night would work wonders so maybe you'll believe your mum the next time.
