The 6am Toddler

I have a 6am toddler! Enough said.

Sometimes my ten morning lattes just don’t cut it, so I need a quick pick me up to start the day. I serve my little “alarm clock” his purple porridge then whizz up the rest and down that smoothie before I call my husband at 9am and ask why the hell isn’t home from work yet !
