  • How forgetful does a father have to be for his 6 year old to write this little note for him?

    As forgetful as a mad scientist, that's how. He hasn't quite got the Einstein hair, but in other respects he resembles him. He forgets to eat, is always running late, has missed his plane several times... And it's been two weeks since he forgot to take the bin out (while we were away on holiday).

    Just in case Daddy forgets again, the Younger Boy hand-delivers the note to his bedside. At 6 o'clock in the morning.
