Dear Sarah,

Since you are six years of age and able to make your own school lunches now there is something I think you should understand.

If you get into my bed in the middle of the night and wake me up several nights in a row there are consequences.

I get blue bruises on my back and legs every time you turn over.

When I am sleep deprived I am grumpy.

When I am grumpy I eat too much

When I eat too much I feel sleepy

When your father comes home from work he will find this

When he finds that he will divorce me

When he divorces me we will have to sell the house and contents

When he takes half of the money from the proceeds I will only be able to afford a single bed and there will be no room for YOU.

Love Mum.
