Notes from the Daddy Dossier

Monday morning: We are ten minutes into our latest attempt to leave the house. My youngest has another cold. My eldest has initiated Operation Enduring Hinderance, because she can.

Me: Can you put your shoes on please, Sweetheart?

My Eldest: I just jumped off the sofa!

M: I saw you. Can you put your shoes on please?

M.E: Daddy, why are you big?

M: Because I’m Daddy. Put your shoes on, please.

M.E: I want some raisins… Where are my raisins?

M: Put your shoes on now, please.

M.E: I don’t like the strap ones.

M: All your shoes have straps! Now put your shoes on.

M.E: I can’t do it on my own!

M: Yes you can. Put your shoes on please.

M.E: Will Grandma Mair help?

M: She’s in Somerset. Put your shoes on, please.

M.E: No!

M: Put your shoes on NOW!

I’m suddenly reminded of Jeremy Paxman interviewing Michael Howard on Newsnight a few years back.

I wonder if Mr. Howard wears strap shoes, too?

Are you going to put your shoes on, Mr. Howard?

Are you going to put your shoes on, Mr. Howard?
